I really can't decide if I wanna go back to WP or not :( I love my dressage, I love jumping but I really miss just popping up into a nice show saddle and loping around.
And what makes it harder is I've found the perfect WP horse for me. I've already ridden this mare, shown this mare quite successfully because she was a friend of my old instructor and yeah. Red dun paint mare. Gorgeous little thing with the best nature. Kinda confused at the moment.
My current instructor is a very successful reiner and a previous dressager/jumper. He's super dooper experienced in both those fields but unfortunately isn't really into WP.
My old instructor no longer has her trusty lesson gelding, so she has no horses for me to ride. She only has her little 2yo's, yearlings, and weanlings. I really just want to show again
The only other place where I can get WP lessons at isn't at all experienced, has a horrible instructor and I really don't like them. There lessons are pretty much pointless.
I'm not sure what to do. We're looking for a new horse, but only had a budget of around 6,000 roughly. But my dream WP horse is 10,000. I know if I got that horse or one like that I'd stay western, but truth is, its going to be very hard to find one that cheap.
I don't know if I should tell my parents or my instructor. I'd feel so guilty for like changing instructors :( If that makes sense.
