  1. Ulcers!

    Okay, this will be the last update, I swear!

    Last night when I talked to the Mom, she mentioned the horse hadn’t eaten his breakfast that day, which is odd for him. I just told her to keep an...

    Mom did call me back and I broke the news to her. She said she understood, but what about just two lessons a month? Sure, I could swing that financially, but it's the principle of the thing. Well,...

    Grr. I called the mom this morning and still haven't heard back from her... my good friend from the barn just called (she's been calling me all day wanting to hear if I'd talked to her) and said she...

    Oh, feelers are being put out... I'm in the Winston-Salem, NC area. I'm going to a show this weekend with a friend in Raleigh, and will have my ear to the ground while I'm there, too.

    Thanks so...

    Oh, well the only reason they are getting that is because I've already paid for the month...:lol:
  6. I have never been so insulted in all my life!!

    OMG. :mad:

    So, today I called the mother to talk about setting up specific days for us to ride so that horsey isn't doing double duty. She opens up the conversation saying DD came home and rode...

    You're quite correct in your understanding of how the lease started off...I was riding a few days a week, college student would come home several weekends and breaks and ride. Mom wasn't riding. ...

    Thanks, all!

    I'll be sitting down with them while the daughter is in town this weekend and make them decide what would work best...scheduled days or ending the lease.

    I appreciate all of your...

    How intuitive you are! Why yes, I am a young adult...but quite mature...in my mid twenties. I feel equal to this woman, but more than anything I'm afraid of losing the ride. There just simply...

    Yes, she is mostly trail riding...but a lot in the rings too. She'll walk and trot for awhile in the dressage ring, then head out for a long mosey around the property.

    Thanks, all, for the words...

    I'm definitely keeping my eyes and ears open! Finanically, we'd be fine with a OTTB or something similarly priced...it's more the time aspect. On a good week I can make it out 4 days at...

    Haha...that's the kick in the pants I was looking for.

    I'm nonconfrontational to a fault.

    This is true...and neither do I, in general, but to buy something for the price they are asking, which is :eek: given his age, and lack of much show experience...let's just say they are asking the...

    Yes, we do have a contract that stipulates that I pay for half, and get half the use... we don't do set days or anything like that due to both of our schedules varying.

    Saddlebum...I'd love to...

    Yes, they are fed at 5:30 am and 5:00 pm. Even if they were doing things at odd hours, it's unacceptable to me for a horse to have no water in the heat of the day. Like I said, they don't live on...

    Well it wouldn't be an extra $75... it would be $150 if we moved and I covered the extra expense. Then I'd be paying$350 and she'd be paying $200. As it stands, I can pretty much ride whenever, but...
