Yesterday the trainer who looked at Larry brought her clients to try him out (we met at the covered arena where Larry and I took lessons in March). Larry was a rock star. I rode him first, then the trainer rode him, and finally the buyer rode him for quite a long time, while I basically gave her a dressage lesson (she's an experienced rider, but new to dressage). This morning the trainer emailed me that they will be making an offer. I am feeling a strange mix of emotions – pride in the improvement I've made in Larry in just three and a half short months; sadness over having to part with this fun and beautiful boy; hope that the offer goes through so he lands in a permanent, loving home; curiosity in what the future holds for me. I do hope it holds another horse, for I love the dance – no matter how painful the parting with each partner.
