That would be awesome, but leasing isn't all that popular in my area, the same well trained horses have been hanging around craigslist waiting to be leasted, owners are just starting to sell or keep as pasture puffs. Terrible horse market over here! I may see if there is anyone that just wants to come ride once in awhile, i just don't want Turbo to waste away in the pasture because I don't have time to ride both of my horses. If I didn't have so many to work, I wouldnt even question having both. But I make a living off of all the horses I am training. Vicious circle. I just need to have more hours in the day. And live in a state that isn't so hot in the summer.

I certainly wouldn't give up my heart horse as he was the first horse I bought as an adult. I then purchased more of a green horse for myself as my daughter fell in love with my heart horse too. She has since been going to college and I ended up with the two of them to take care of now. The journey with my green horse hasn't been easy but it has been rewarding nonetheless. At least my heart horse was purchased first so, I didn't have to make a decision like yourself. But, I did find enough time and love for both of my boys and I enjoy each them for their unique differences. I'm sure you'll choose what's best for you and the horses. Best of everything to you.

Could you train one into a lesson horse so they could "earn their keep"?

It sounds to me like the finances aren't a problem; just time. If that's the case, bear in mind that horse's don't NEED to be worked with and ridden daily. They're just as happy being out to pasture, and if you can't ride them both every day, it wouldn't be the end of the world. If you have enough time to care for them both, I would buy Roxy and keep your gelding.

Don't dismiss her small size as not having the potential to be a good barrel horse. At one time the fastest barrel horse in Alberta was a welsh cross, maybe 14 hh. He entered the arena on a dead run and could nip around the barrels better than the longer legged horses. He was fast yet always found more speed heading for the finish line.
