Have you asked the BO if he would like to share board your horse? He gets the pleasure of riding and working with your horse at no cost to you.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

The problem here is your own insecurity.

It's your horse - you get to decide what to do with her. Period.

If you want to hire a trainer - then you hire a trainer. As in $$ for XX sessions.

Right now, I feel like you are hem-hawing around waiting to see what OTHER people think, or do, or say, or might say...
I feel like I'm not getting anywhere on my own or maybe I am...I don't know. I was wondering...
And so instead of being decisive and making a plan to achieve the goals you want - you are second-guessing yourself and going nowhere. And it is that second-guessing and lack of confidence that is inviting the comments about what others *might* be able to achieve in your stead.

Make a decision. Own it. Have some faith in yourself.

Then you will find that such comments do not bother you - if they are made at all...

Good luck!

New here also:)
I can understand why your BO wants your mare...she is a Beautiful Buckskin Overo...kind of partial to paints:):)
I noticed you just bought her 4 months ago...dont listen to other people, about "her doing better with the BO". To me if the BO is a reining trainer..I am sure he sees her color and confirmation, and knows that THAT SELLS...I am sure h could put alot of training on her , and the turn around and sell her for a very pretty penny!!
Know that you are giving her your love and undivided attention, and feel good in the fact that there are so many out there that want your mare for themselves!!! Bask in that!!!

You and Cheyenne are just getting to really know one another beer, and remember Best friends dont know all of each others secrets overnight:):):)

I just looked at some of your other threads. When I 1st read this one I thought that you should work through it as you sound experienced enough and just needed to do it but when I read some of the issues with this horse it would have been down the road so fast. Actually I wouldn't have bought it to begin with. I also was not impressed with your new saddle and the fit looked wrong but it sounds as if this horse had issues before the saddle.
