    Everyone needs a sit down to spell out expectations. If you are unhappy with something, they need to hear it directly; same goes for them.

    Things were a lot different in the 60s -70s in the horse world. Just the absence of the internet and videos makes a big difference in how sales were done and horses were marketed/found.

    Move on and find another $1500 horse that's a diamond in the rough. You found this one, didn't you?

    I would be suspicious of everything about this new horse, since he was supposed to be a bombproof packer and then turns into a project when you get him home.

    I would seriously question the saddle...
