The barn I ride at has numerous people like this. In fact some of the lesson horses they have had in the past were just left here by their owners. There is this horse that is kept in a big pen that I don't even think is broke to ride, hte owner hasnt paid in years. Horse is still there. Then there was this girl who had a horse that was stuck in a 12x12 stall for over a year becuase she never came out and her parents could no longer affoard board, poor horse eventually the BO let another girl ride the horse and she ended up taking the horse, best thing for the horse tho because the horse gets to be ridden on unlimited trails and gets lots of love. There are soooo many more horses out here that people just leave or pay people to walk/turn out, whats the point in having a horse if you don't even take care of it???
The rider casts her heart over the fence, the horse jumps in pursuit of it.
