This has been a year of up and downs for me and miss Amber (mostly downs) As many of you know, in the summer I was ready to sell her, I was scared of her, we weren't clicking, riding wasn't fun anymore and nothing was helping. It wasn't fair to either of us... In september I moved into my first apartment and I moved Amber to a new barn, my new trainer (who I adore) convinced me to give Amber a couple more months to see how she would do with a new and different training regime. We started to improve a little, and had some really good moments together and I thought we might be able to make it work. But the bad still outweigh the good, the biggest thing is she makes me nervous, I don't trust her and she knows it, and 3/4 of ours rides still don't go well. She needs a constant program, I'm in school full time and only get to the barn 3-4 times a week if I'm lucky... it's just plain not working out.
I had a long talk with my trainer, and she agrees with me. Amber is a wonderful horse, but she is clearly not the kind of horse I need right now, and it's not fair to either of us. So I have decided to sell Amber for sure. And I actually feel really good about the decision. Some people don't understand why but most of my friends get it and support my decision.
Once she is sold im going to look for a nice older (10+) been there done that horse that I can just trail ride, take to local shows, have fun with and enjoy. I just wanted to let everyone know! And if anyone is looking for a beautiful and talented mare for sale that just needs to find the right person, let me know!
