Pondering (Dec 29/15)

Joli01Nov15-12My horse, Joli. Been with me since July 2014, and I’m pondering letting him go to another, loving home. It’s not an easy decision, he’s a great guy, and we have a good relationship. But I love reining and he doesn’t, and it doesn’t seem quite right that neither of us is fully satisfied with this situation. His fate should be sealed soon. Stay tuned…

    That must be a really difficult decision to make in so many ways.

      Yes Jane, it is. The very simple thing is, when I purchased Joli I had no specific goals in my riding. Over time I developped further goals, and now Joli is not quite up to the task (plus he truly doesn’t enjoy it). We have a wonderful relationship on the ground, but we are both a bit frustrated in our riding. Not massively, but enough that it spoils the fun for both of us. A good opportunity arised to rehome him with someone who would offer activities he enjoys way more, namely trail riding. Upon thinking about it long and hard I decided that I would let him go. Expect some tears on D day, though….

        I know nothing about horses but I can image an unhappy horse is not nice place for a horse. Hopefully you will find someone who love him heaps and he loves doing what his new owner asks of him.
