    I have a friend who was in your EXACT situation. She had the nicest horse in the barn, and the BO thought that that allowed HER to basically free-lease the horse to her advanced riders who wanted...

    I'm just as "snarky" as you, and would do EXACTLY the same thing. Lessee has clearly forgotten whose horse this is, and should be STRINGENTLY reminded, ASAP.

    OP, move YOUR horse to YOUR CHOICE...

    I'd have new boarder provide you with copies of her adoption agreement from CRL, as well as proof of payment. That way, if CRL shows up, you call the cops and show them the paperwork. If CRL...

    Ariat USED to make a wide paddock boot; not sure if they still do. Worth checking out, though.
    The suggestion to buy men's boots is a brilliant one. I'm going to remember that.

    Oh, they do. Along with trainers who are off at shows for months on end and still charge clients at home full price. For nothing. I could give you a list of the places around here with that policy.

    ^^^Exactly.^^^ Can't complete a sale if agent/seller won't return your calls/texts/e-mails. OP isn't the one who breached the agreement. She should get her money back.

    Just me, but I'd pay 30 days from the date I gave notice, and let the devil take the hindmost. I think it's ridiculous to only accept notice on the first of the month. Even apartment leases don't...

    When I had liability insurance, it went by the amount of coverage I wanted, not by the number of students I had. It might be expensive, but well worth the cost.

    Did you eventually buy the place, or was it dead at that point?

    Again, I am stunned by the OP's generosity. I need to take "nice" lessons from her.

    One perhaps would not be so quick to assume, had the mule placed badly or not at all. 'Tis the changing of a CONFIRMED RULE AFTER THE FACT that has everyone up in arms. ;)

    This would be my concern, also. To someone like this, your lack of action on minor infractions of your agreement is tacit permission to continue. Or, worse, escalate. And without experienced eyes...
