So I'm stuck and I don't know what to do.
Many of you know Sunny, my 5YO TB that I have had since she was a yearling. I love this little mare to death.
The problem that has arisen is my newly hectic schedule. I recently got a job, which is great. What sucks is that I now don't have any time to go see her. Today was the first time I have seen her in two weeks, which is the longest I have EVER gone without seeing her.
To make matters worse, I am also a student. I will start back classes in a few weeks, which will tie up my schedule even more. I have three more years of school, and after that my job will take up almost 100% of my time.
I just don't know that either of us will benefit from me keeping her. She is young, so she needs constant work to keep up and maintain her training. It's an injustice to only ride her every few weeks, if that, when each ride ends up being a training tune-up and nothing else.
On the other hand, I love this horse. She is my baby. I have watched her grow and develop into the awesome mare that she is. I know all of her quirks and her personality and... I don't know. I love her.
Is it worth it to pay for her upkeep when I will hardly ever see her? Is it fair to her? To me? Sigh. I don't know.
Does anyone have any advice to help me see the situation more clearly?
