Thats a tough choice Joe, sorry Beauregard has not worked out. Miss Emma does sound like she has the ability to do well, and possibly be competitive, so I hope it works out for you both.
Do you have the time for another horse too?
I'll admit that I have been thinking also that Chivas is never going to be the endurance horse I want & have been thinking of keeping my eye out for another horse, an arab cross or maybe a pure Arab, but I am just not sure if I have the time.
I plan to give Chivas a little more time to see if I can get his speed up, but I also am not sure if his temperment is the right kind either. He is just too focused on the other horses instead of focusing on his work.
