I think it's interesting that there are so many responses to this post. I'm glad that so many of us here really care about having the right horse to ride, no matter what you do with horses, you really need one that clicks.

I know where your coming from. I am 45 and am also a new horse owner. Fortunately my horse only has a small attitude. I am pretty confident with him (now) but I wasn't when I first got him. He is a bay and white paint with blue eyes (sounds a lot like your Frosty) but he has turned into a big baby after I gained confidence and assertiveness. I think you have given yourself more than enough time to build your confidence and unfortunately it just isn't going to happen with this horse. I totally understand about keeping them for life but your safety is more important. It is definitely time to move on and find the horse that's a good fit for you. I hope you don't beat yourself up over this, the perfect horse is out there for you. ((hugs)) Lisa

Let her go - it will be better for both of you in the long run
Over 20 years ago we were introduced to a lady that was in a position much like the one you're in now. We took her totally unsuitable horse off her and found him a home where he fitted in perfectly and then found her a lovely cob that she had years of pleasure from until the mare died not long ago of old age. She now has another cob and still enjoying her riding very much
