    For me, I was just surprised how common this was and how odd people find me when I don't call my horse my 'baby' or call my self her 'mommy.' I like my horse quite a bit, but I have not ever had the...

    The more you describe the situation, the more of a bum deal it sounds like for you and a great deal for them! Another horse will come along when you are ready for one.

    Best of luck to you! I...

    One of our dog's has been fed the Kirkland Signature Chicken and Rice for over 5 years now, and he has always been shiny with too much energy! :) Another of our dogs has been fed the Salmon and...

    IMHO, the owners are playing on your friend's emotions for this horse and are hoping to get more money than the horse is worth.

    The horse is towards the end of his lesson horse career which I...

    I am sorry, but this situations seems like it is only going to deteriorate from here. If you have a good behavioral trainer in your area that can come to your house, I would give that a try but you...

    These are the statements in your post that jumped out to me. Riding is supposed to be fun (most of the time anyway :D) and you are not having fun. It is too expensive and time consuming to not be...

    Almost always a sharp "NO, GO HOME!!!" will send loose dogs away. I even scared one sensitive soul so much that he jumped back in his yard!

    I have not been attacked, but my dog was while I was...

    I don't think wifey poo has been honest with her husband about how much of a mess this mare is. This woman either needs to be paying a trainer to fix the problem or let you ride (school and train...)...

    My one horse selling experience was a 14h big-bodied mare and that took 6+ months to sell her even though she was not green at all. She went well under saddle, had not had much jumping experience but...

    I used to board at a partial care facility that seemed to run smoothly. They lost their lease or I would have still been there.

    That must have been scary for that woman... Do you know a REAL instructor that you can point her to? That is just horrifying; she could have really gotten hurt!

    I just got to remind my horse of this recently. She got out of her paddock and was enjoying the time with her new found friends in a big field. It took about 20 minutes to catch her... she kept...

    I used to order from them despite the shipping charges because I really liked their 'Riding Sport' breeches. The quality of those have became junk a few years ago so I no longer order from Dover.

    I am sure you know deep down that you can't keep people from being stupid. Responsible dog owners know better than let their dogs come up on yours, but those are not the dog owners you need to worry...

    I think ladyj is spot on, but I wanted to add that con artists are very skilled at spotting marks. They have learned what type of people will fall for their lies and exploit those people.
