I remain convinced that at the basic level a "gaited" trainer is not necessarily required to start a gaited horse.

There can be differences, though. If you are of the persuasion that says "gait" is "made" in training then, yes, a gaited trainer will be required very early on.

If you are of the persuasion that says "gait" is made in the breeding shed then you could easily come to my view. (Guess which tack I tend to take? ).

Chur-I would wait til the 'law' gets a hold of you and I would file my own suit. If she really believes that you are extorting her, she's sick. I have been out of gaited horses for about 8 years now and I had heard of her. I had always heard high praise for her. I think her behavior in this is disgusting.

Guil-See...Im in the middle there. I don't believe the gait is made...I don't believe the gait is *always* there at birth...I think the gait needs to be encouraged. I've ridden some well bred walkers in my day. Most gaited from the day they were born. Others needed a little encouragement under saddle. "No no...no pacing...slow down and start over".

WOW! Seriously? OMGosh!!! What sort of response is that from her? I'm at a loss for words. We should ALL send her an "E"! I had heard so many good things about this trainer in the past. But lately she has proven to be a BIOTH! What sort of extortion is she even talking about. She never explained to you anything about why she wouldn't ride your horse and why it was not trained after so many days with her. I'm truly sorry that you have to go through this nonsense! Keep us posted!

I'ts a poor nickle that doesn't have two sides.

We've gotten one from an anonymous, clearly disgruntled, former client of Liz. She has not had any opportunity to respond to this. Perhaps we could restrain judgement until the original story is confirmed.

If this story is true, I would be so pissed as the owner of the horse.

If the former, that definitely seems unacceptable. If the latter, while I still don't think it's right, it's a bit more understandable. The better approach would have been to reschedule either you or the drop-off so that you could each get the time you deserved - but in that case it would mean she still did appropriately work with the horse over the months she had it.
I don't know if the horse had been riden as it wouldn't go when I got on it but I would say there was minimal commotion. A person dropped a horse off and it went into a stall. There was nothing else going on in the arena after that. So when I go to another stable and 2 people are taking lessons, 1 other person riding, new horse getting worked in a round pen, shoer doing a horse and 5 people standing around they still rode every horse with all the commotion.

There's no extortion, black mail or threat in the letter churumbeque posted. Which means, we don't have the whole story here.

As for slander, is she talking about this very thread? It's possible.

You do have the whole story from what I know. That is the only communication I have sent her. Her lack of responce and me having to ask again for a responce and then the responce she gave shows me what kind of person she is and does not handle things professionally or she would have sent the horse home when she couldn't do what was expected. This is the only thread I am on but I do run into people who know her and I tell them what I stated in my email to her. It is not slander if you speak the truth and I have not said any thing untrue just stating my experience.

Since I have been on here for some time and just didn't come on with a 1st post I didn't think I should have to state who I am as no one else does.
My name is Laurie Renda and I live in Cedar Rapids IA and if you would like my phone number send me a private email.
