Hi everyone, please excuse the novel I'm about to write, but I am hoping to get a little emotional advice about selling one of my horses. I have two horses that mean the absolute world to me (all you horsey people will understand that!). One is my competition horse; he has brought me to many a winner's circle and still has many years left and lots to teach me. Though I could get quite a bit of money for him, I doubt that I could ever sell him because he is my soulmate and my heart horse. My other is a 5 year old greenie, and she is my baby girl. Whereas my first horse doesn't show a lot of emotion at all, this girl has loads of personality. She is gorgeous, and really she is just my baby girl. I can't put the feeling into words. However, she is a little small for me and would probably do best in the western pleasure or western dressage world, and I'm a dressage and hunter/jumper enthusiast. I have run into financial issues (well, who hasn't these last few years) and am realizing that if I want to take a risk to pursue my dreams I'm not going to be able to take both horses with me. I can tread water and keep doing what I'm doing, barely getting by, and afford to keep both, but is that really fair to me or even to my horses? I want to be able to compete both, but that just makes money even more of an issue. Am I being selfish in wanting to keep them both, or is it selfish to sell one for my own benefit? Should I try and sell my greenie and let her become someone else's dream horse? How do I cope with the loss of my baby? I know, it's not like she's passed away or anything terrible like that, but to me it is still a loss. Has anyone been in this situation and regretted selling or not selling? Any advice or experience would be appreciated!
