DH has expressed a serious interest in learning to ride and taking lessons, but Herself so not the type (if I wanted my hubby to live). I'd love to have something for DD to learn on as well and another quiet thing for myself.
We finally found the most perfect horse, and I was all excited. I went out yesterday afternoon to help transport the new guy and he would. not. load. We tried for 4 hours and used every method that we could think of, including calling her trainer (whose known the horse since he was 6 months old) to come help. He just would not get in the trailer. Both his owner and I agreed that if he wouldn't get into the 3 horse (converted into a one horse) that's he's been riding in all his life, there was no way that we were going to shove him onto a semi with Herself in a few weeks for the trek to KY. He wasn't scared, violent, or mean... just saying (pretty blatantly) "No. Way. In. H***."
He'd never had a big problem loading before this.
He was so bloody perfect in every other aspect and I'm so bummed that he didn't work out that I just needed to vent! I've been quietly searching forever. I know it's the name of the game but...
