Well it's official! Pammon has the most wonderful new human! She's an adult amateur currently jumping around 2'. She absolutely loves him and all of his little quirks. And as I had hoped, the feeling is mutual, and Pammon is very happy at his new home. He gets lots of turnout and even gets to snuggle his new human brother! Human brother is learning to ride too, and someday will probably get to ride Pammon too. I couldn't have asked for a better home for him. His new human reached out to me on the Insta over the weekend to tell me he has a forever home, and he'll be their family pet no matter what for the rest of his life. That makes it so much easier for me to let him go. When she threw in the term "dream horse" I knew everything had turned out wonderfully for him.
I'm very grateful to the trainer who helped me to sell him. She found him his most perfect home in under a month, which is so fast. Some people are just really good at matching horses to riders, and she's definitely one of those people.
Not much of a confession today, but I've been keeping this secret for awhile because I was terrified if I said anything too soon the deal would fall apart. So I'm letting my breath out finally, and sharing with you all the wonderful, bittersweet news. It's always hard to see them move on, but it feels so wonderful to be a part of helping someone else find their dream horse. It also helps that I know one of the instructors at his new barn, so I'll get updates from time to time.
