Go look at a horse
Look up and plan show season
Wait what?! Put on the brakes. Horse to look at? Yeah. I'm nuts but it makes sense right. 4 people in house that ride horses and only 3 horses? What is the sense in that? I have actually resigned to sharing Steady and moving on. Not feeling the need to run out and get another horse the second I might possibly be able to use one. Then someone posts a horse for lease that sounds like a little(using that word figuatively. he is only 15.3 HH but half Clydesdale) gem.
|How cute is he. I know people who have known him for years that say he is a doll. |
11 years old, 15.3hh, Clydesdale X . Loves to jump, good on trails, easy keeper, great feet. Thats what I know for now.
So while I'm not getting my hopes up (or at least trying my best not to) I am excited about looking at him and the prospect that I might have a horse that will be a Hunt horse for me. I want to hunt. I would love to hunt regularly but I do not have a beast suitable for the sport. I have never taken Steady hunting. And no matter how badly I want to hunt it will never outweigh my terrified image of what will happen to me and my horse on a hunt. Best case scenario is we are excused because he passed the Master. Worst? We won't even go there. And Elaina having another option for a horse to event would be ideal. I already decided that Steady and Elaina will be dressage and Show jump partners and we'll leave the XC part out of it for a while for them. So cross your fingers we end up with this guy cause he sounds like a good fit for us in our lives right now. I am happy not purchasing. Our lives are ever changing with the kids, so permanet is not the best solution for us for now. Even Elaina she is a good rider but she is only 12. Maybe in 2 more years we will have a better underststanding of what the best horse for her is but right now it's too early to tell. Anyways, the idea of having a horse to ride in the winter who won't try to randomly kill me makes me giddy.
