Goodbye for now <3
Hey all! I've been MIA for a while, but for a very good reason. I was offered a position doing my dream job, so I've been very busy working with my new employer, getting ready to move, and preparing myself for beginning my position this fall.
Unfortunately, this move also forced me to choose between my horses as I will only be able to afford one. In the end, I chose my QH colt as he's my baby that I've had since he was 18mo old, have trained myself, and was the first horse I purchased on my own. Thus, I had to sell my endurance horse, which was probably for the best since I doubt I'll have the time and ability to condition and compete in endurance like I'd want to with him and like he needs. He truly is an endurance horse through and through and would not have been happy doing anything else, so I was very happy to be able to sell him to an experienced local endurance rider. He's been doing great, and I'm pleased with how it an Arabian or half- Arabian specifically picked for endurance.ll worked out.
I didn't by my colt to do endurance and have my doubts about how well he'd do given his build, so I'm not sure when I'll be back in the endurance world. For now, we're working on training and trail riding. In a few years, when he's 5, we'll see if he has the physical and mental capability to do endurance, so I'll be taking a break for at least that long. I'm going to miss it, but I'll definitely be back in this addicting sport eventually. If not on Flash, my colt, then on an Arabian or half-Arab chosen specifically to do endurance. So, until then, I'll be missing the endurance trails, but wish you all and your horses the best of luck on the many miles ahead of you!
