Selling your horse to buy another(?)
Sorry for my flawed english, I couldn't necessarily explain some things how I really wanted but yeah)
Hey! So I've actually been thinking about this topic for a while now, because it's something that is very probably going to happen on my future.
Would you sell your horse for a more upper-level horse? It's pretty hard imo, you have this horse you love so much and then the idea of selling it? for another horse?
As someone young (I'm 15), how do you talk with your parents about it? I have horse that was nothing I ever expected, gaited, not the biggest, incredibly moody, green. Talked with parents about selling her, they didn't want to, had to keep her. As a beginner I had to learn to deal with all that, but I still love her to bits. My parents at this point just say she'll be her whole life here, but I feel like I could maybe have something that gives me confidence, that I can ride often and learn.
I feel like if everything would've been taken more slowly and thought and well talked, what would happen is I would just take lessons first, and when ready, start to look for options.
But it's too late. I now take lessons, but also have my green, moody mare wich I cant even ride.
I rode an amazing mare at my lessons, she's young and full of personalityand she's the best horse I've ridden, never felt so confident. wich I really, really fell in love with as soon as I rode her, and it really got me thinking, what would I do if she were going to be sold sometime?
Advice is greatly appreciated! Good day/night:)
