    Actually, it is older than the dinosaurs. It was a movie, called Gaslight, from the 1930s or 40s where a woman's husband drove her insane by doing things secretly so she blamed it on herself. I...

    He was on the truck, so I guess they did take him, probably for free...but the driver made the person who came to get him pay some money, from the sound of it.

    The page was hacked? Why? And I...

    That may be true, but your posts did seem as though you had inside information, and "the story would all come out" you said, making it sound like you did know all about it.

    Now we won't know since...

    Nah they just are riding the wave of outrage and sentiment. Right now people want to help this horse. Thus, the fund.

    Houseguest, or person who went and got the horse, yes.

    I don't think anyone is hysterical here. People were appalled that a horse that was promised a safe landing through contracts, and...

    The one thing I would suggest is that in your own mind, you stop taking any kind of sense of ownership of this horse -- when you say you can't import, and just sell, that kind of implies you have a...

    For all we know, some individual involved in the ownership chain may have refused to take him back -- has anyone considered this? Of course now that it hit social media, no one would ever admit...

    I can see this definitely turning into some kind of COTH meme ... "send the PM"!

    If they had money for a reward, why do they need money now?

    I also don't understand all the secrecy and hush-hush about the entire thing.

    Certainly there are honest dealers, and they will let you do a PPE, take the horse on trial, and take the horse back if you don't like it. If there's any objection to any of these things, time to...

    You said these people are now financially hurting -- what better way to get some money than ask you for all these fees and so forth?

    You have no idea where this money would go, assuming you would...

    So you have no instructor or trainer to help you with a purchase? Well-known breeders and trainers will have a network of people who know of horses for sale, as will pony club instructors,...

    So did KLM sporthorses sell him before or after the Makeover? Were they the ones with the contract? Or was it the TB placement/rescue that had the contract?

    I am confused, but since no details...

    You could apply to CPS to be an adult supervisor for her riding -- you will go through hoops while they do intensive background checks, etc. but at least you will be qualified adult to be around her...

    So the upshot of this is, you can ride but no longer than 15 minutes, and probably you should ride bareback. Forget horse sports, you are being a meanie. So Native Americans, Mongolians, and other...

    I have recently been involved with a family and child protective services ... let me say first that the horses will be the last thing on their minds right now. There are legal and other problems...

    Didn't sound like much of this was speculation, but ok. Some of this really sounds like negotiation with bad people ... which never ends well. You can't bargain with people who do bad things,...

    I have found doing business with friends never ends well ... people have too many conflicts. Or maybe she was never your friend.

    Of course the comments involve an argument about the cruelty of fox hunting. It seems to be very polarizing in the UK.

    There's always two sides to any conflict ... but remember, it's your horse and she's just paying to use him. So don't worry, it will all be over soon. It's too bad it has to end on sour note, but...

    Goodhors, that is excellent advice and something I hadn't thought of, especially for old harness which is something you find in a lot of barns!

    I have seen a rather nasty accident at a place I...

    Private owner after he came from a rescue, I believe. There was a contract for return but they ignored it.
