Depressing long overdue update....

On my side of things....
I have quit riding. For a lot of reasons and one of them NOT being that I don't want to ride anymore but because while I was in Spain over the summer my parents sold my horse, Logan. Without a horse, my trainer did not see reason to pay much attention to me. I was handed green horses or crappy lesson horses and then eventually a pony. Now it was fun experiencing different horses but it got to the point where i wasn't going anywhere. I was "stuck". So I quit. I would love to start back up again. Who knows when though...
I miss riding everyday.
Maybe you all can help fill the empty hole left in me.

I didn't know your parents sold him. I thought you leased him or something. That really sucks though and i'm sorry. This may sound rude but i don't think I would ever go back to [trainer] because she is very biased and only really wants her daughter to succeed. Did you know the people who bought Duke retired him because their daughter can't ride him now? And she said they were a good fit.

That totally sucks that your parents sold your horse while you were gone.

Either way, someone deserves a hug.

So sorry they sold him, and you quit. I bet you get back into it over time. You were born with talent to ride, that urge to get on their back will hopefuly come back to you, you are just in a tough spot right now.

Are you a senior this year? In college now? I have a hard time keeping track! Any news on Turkey and how he's doing? He always was a fave of mine I did like Logan too, but you know my soft spot for bay thoroughbreds!

Fat Pony: I am so glad to see your still here! I'm a senior this year but graduating in January. I am going to a local community college for the spring and then in the fall I will either go to Texas State or University of Colorado at Boulder. I haven't heard much about Turkey but I'm pretty sure he is still with his owner.
Foxie_Eventer: How have you been!? I really appreciate your support!
Thanks guys! I'll try and get a picture up here for everyone to see!
