Good on you for putting his needs before yours. I understand that it would be hard, but at least you found someone that clicks with him. And that also wants what he wants. I'm sure he'll be happy in his new home. You definitely made the right decision :).

I think it's admirable that you have been able to set aside your own feelings and take your horse's feelings so seriously that you found him a new home where he would be focused on the things he most enjoys. Not all horse owners do that. Many horse owners will force their horse into doing whatever and ignore the unhappiness.

If you can forge a friendship with this lady, I think you should. If she's just getting back into horses, she might really appreciate having a 'horsie friend'.

Maybe in the meantime you can find a few nice Dressage horses to ride or lease until you're ready to buy.

It's good to know someone found a good home for their horse. I am in a touch spot right now with my horse....I hope you could help me out by reading my post? https://www.horseforum.com/horse-talk...-horse-301937/

I'd appreciate it

I am so happy that my horses' last owner sold her to me. She liked her a lot, but felt Wendy was a little small for her, so she got a bigger Morgan. Her horse is less comfortable, not quite as responsive, but she is happy that Wendy & I hit it off. Especially since I bought her sight unseen & no test ride. When I picked her up, we just put her in the trailer for the 10 hour trip home. What an adventure that was for this senior citizen! I rode Wendy in my English saddle yesterday out alone & it was like old times for me. I see lots of great rides in our future. I hope you find the horse of your dreams when you are ready-it makes all the difference in the world.

I think a horse that is mediocre at something but really loves it, they will usually do better at shows than the horse that is good but hates what he is doing. He liked it the first year, but I really think he got bored with it all. He'd rather hit the trails and wide open roads. :)

She took my place in a mini clinic today (a really laid back western dressage/NH (not bad NH)clinic) so I watched her ride. They are almost magical together. I think he senses that he is understood by her :)

Okay........ maybe not. She came out and rode Cinny in my clinic spot on October 27 and we were supposed to sign the lease Halloween. She said she didn't get paid until the 5th so I was gonna let it slide. Well, Halloween comes and I call to touch base and she says she can't meet up because she had a dog in labor. But then she said she was meeting my BO, whom she is introducing to a friend with property for sale. She asked if we could do it over the weekend. This time I waited...she never called. She also hasn't seen Cin as I told her she could since her lease was going to start on the 1st even though she was paying on the 5th. So, tomorrow I'm gonna go take him out and play :) My husband and I have decided if we don't hear from her on by the end of this week, it's no deal.

And he thought I was dumb to budget as if we were paying for Cinny's board this month. She seems like a good fit for him, but I had a weird feeling she may change her mind. Yay me for thinking "worse case scenario" with the budget.

I know, huh. My BO said she did show up to meet HER on Halloween. So, I'm a little miffed because she made plans to meet me and sign the lease but then did something else. I am starting to feel that for all her words, and saying she's afraid I'll change MY mind, and was so worried she was going to lose him if she couldn't pay until the 5th....her actions just don't show that she is serious about him. :(

She also keeps trying to dictate which of my tack should go with him when she finally purchases him, when I advertised that if he were leased, the lessee could use my tack but in purchase NO tack would be included. She keeps insisting that since he is comfortable in my 200 dollar dressage bridle (which is actually too big for his cob head) that it should go with him. She only wants him for a trail horse and plans to get him a western saddle. He has a western headstall I'm willing to give up (a second hand I bought for 5 bucks) but she keeps telling me the dressage should go with him. gah. I can see possibly his blanket set and a couple other sized things that probably wouldn't fit a bigger horse but only because they probably won't go on a different horse. I had to put my foot down with her last weekend in regards to tack, and maybe she didn't like it.

A bridle is a bridle, saying he's "comfortable in it" is silly... you keep your bridle and let her buy her own if she purchases him.
