Giving in :(
Well , I'm finally doing it.... Joey is for sale. I just can't handle anymore. Working with Joe has completely taken away my confidence. He's too much of a horse for me to handle and it's time I face the music. We contacted the owner of his father and they are not interested in taking him .... figures, they don't want to take him and they train horses and riders...... hmmmm, they would rather see an inexperience person try and handle him. They don't want him back but they also don't want to sign papers so I can get him registered as an arabian. This is the same people who convinced us Joey was a good horse for me.... ya ok. Just my luck with farms around here. Don and I bought a sweet little mare a few weeks ago and I think she is just what I need, there is not a mean bone in her body. I've been riding her without my trainer and things are going good. I can't really concentrate on her because I'm too worried about Joe, I think once he is sold I'll be able to concentrate on riding again. I found a great trainer who is a certified John Lyons trainer, we'll see how she works out. If you have been following my blog, you know that I have had no luck with boarding "facilities" , trainers and horse people in general. So many times I've wanted to give up, we have put so much money into the horses and the new barn that it seems a shame to give up, not sure how much more I can handle.
