Re: [RC] Trainer woes - rides2far@xxxxxxxx

   Scout is half arab, half appendix Qh and his grandsire was Noholme II -- 
An Austrailian racehorse of the year...ways back. He is 16 hands, 1200 lbs 
I wanted  like 30 rides of 1/2 hour, then I would feel comfortable .(green 
broke my  spooky," everything will kill me "mare) and my gelding enough to 
show him some, and ride alone for 3 years on trails, and jump, cross 
water,go past spooky stuff). 

"boy is this horse disrespectful". 

 My husband wants him to be his trail horse....but I could likely end up 
with him as a backup horse...
     arrrrrrggggghhhhh!!!!!!!!!! I am so crazy  with this..........


I used to be an "Equine Matchmaker".Total honesty here.  If I owned that horse 
and you tried to buy him from me I wouldn't sell him to you for yours or the 
horse's sakes. 

You're not doing him any favors by loving him but not being able to handle him 
and he's probably going to hurt you. Chances are your husband will never get on 
his back. Why would he? There's some drunk broke horses in Alabama that you an 
buy ready made. There's some horse people out there who could take your horse 
and ride the rough edges off of him but chances are it's not you two. Trainers 
can't work miracles. 90 days is nothing in the course of a horse's life, and to 
some extent horses are what they're gonna be from the start. Kaboot never made 
a kid horse no matter how many years and miles he went. It makes me laugh to 
imagine if someone had just tried to pay a trainer until he was something they 
could handle.  Best plan...buy something that is what you need NOW.

Angie, feeling rather frank today.
