To sell or not to sell?
I have a 6yo appendix QH, whom I bought back in November. When I bought him, I originally thought he had more training than he actually had. I knew he was still real green, just not this green. I bought him because I had outgrown my arab mare and she had a stifle injury that's made her lame. Ned(the appendix) is a real sweetie, but extremely ignorant. I know, I know, patience with young horses, with any horse really, but Ned is the kind of horse you can do something with a million times and he still won't get it. I have been telling myself that we'll get through this, he's just not the smartest horse in the barn, but my patience is running thin. I was told once don't keep a horse that doesn't make you want to go out and ride, and Ned doesn't make me want to ride! I've been thinking about selling him, but I do love him and I'm attached to him. I know this thread makes me seem like someone who is a horrible horseperson because I can't work through a babies problems, and that I shouldn't own a horse if I don't have patience, but I just can't keep going like this. So I guess what I'm asking is what would you guys do, stick with him, or find a better match for me? Thanks
Horses may be cookies to the soul - but ponies are Ben & Jerry! ;)
