ACTUALLY....this is kind of the plan. We are trying to sell this ranch--and hopefully to good people experienced with horses who know how to and want to train horses. The horse would go with the property (as an option).
So many great responses to my thread--thank you!
The owner lives down the road; horse is here to protect from local horse thieves
My husband doesn't have time to work with the horse (he thought I'd be fine with the horse because I was with the 4 Arabians who were here before (who were very well trained.)
We live in a very rural area--there are no horse trainers out here--there is nada out here --nearest Starbucks store is 3 hours away (another reason to leave
Initially, I did try to intimidate the horse by acting confident, making myself stand tall, waving my arms around, yadda yadda--she just "huffed at me", turning her head away as if to say "whom are you fooling, lady?!" (in a way it was rather comical )
Perimeter fenced; cannot afford additional fencing or corral
Plan is to move horse to adjoining, vacant property and owner is working on that (thank God!)
It sounds like I'm absolutely right in my suspicion that this horse could turn on me if I hit her (would hate to do that anyhow)
I feel sorry for the horse--she needs the right person to work with her intensively--she has potential--but I'm not the person to try to help her. She will probably end up being a pasture decoration.
