    Right now - well done and go you !! The horse gets a chance and you can move on.
    I have trained horses all my life and my father before me and I know how hard it is to give up on a horse.
    Best wishes

    thanks brew!!! :)
    i hope all goes well with this horse i''m trialing....everyone says tha't he's really quiet and relaxed with me so i guess the way i ride and the way he wants to be ridden is the same :) i hope he's a good boy out and can handle the scarey truck winch (it's sounds like it's slowly dying a painful death LOL) and have the patience to wait all day for the ramp to lift LOL. if he fits into what i need and want then he's all mine :)

    oh and someone commented on the retirees being passed on....just so u know i got ozzie who put me back together when i was in pieces from my horse before him. i've had him 5 1/2 years and he's not going anywhere...he's stuck with me :)

    Horses are lots of things to lots of people. If it helps I have had horses that I cannot do anything with that I have moved on and they have done well. take what you have learned from the horse and use it to help yourself - Even the worst experiences have some positive aspects - Even if only what not to do.
    Horses dont much care how flash we think we are they will keep trying to teach us more
    I think you did the right thing.

    Hey Matey,
    I am so glad he going back to his old home, will keep a watchful eye on how he goes the big poop head, lol....
    Glad you were not seriously hurt though, never nice to be in those situations... Sounds like the new horse is gonna work out well, all fingers crossed for you.... Dont worry about those people who abuse you, a mutual friend sent me copies of the emails and i say, dont fret you did the right thing in being honest and upfront which i cant say for alot of people out there...
    Keep us informed on how the new boy goes...
    Cheers Chell:D

    Hi :)

    I know this is a little off topic, but i have seen a few of you say you ride at Henty Riding Club! I have just become a member there and was wondering what its like?

    I have had a couple people say its really lovely and everybody is really friendly. I live in yarloop and would be going down most thursday nights for the riding under lights and doing the dressage training days etc, it would be really nice to meet some new people :)

    Oh and I hope this horse you have on trial works out for you! Its really nice when you find a horse that you click with :)

    Dont ever feel bad because you were honest...... A lot of horses are not quite good with one person, but great with another - and that is nothign personal. Its just what happens when you are dealing with two living animals with two living personalities.

    So, with Thursday riding, what time does everyone get there???
