She should have learned from this. He got out again a few weeks later and attacked two 5 year old geldings who were very expensive show animals, one of them had to be put down because his injuries were so bad and the other one is badly scarred physically and mentally, he can't go near another horse he takes off as soon as he sees them.
This is an absolutely, over-the-top inexcusable way to manage a stable!! I don't blame you for being alarmed/concerned one bit, and am pleased that you came to the forum looking for some guidance. Do not feel guilty that you are concerned - This is NOT a safe place or situation. I would leave, (you don't owe an explanation, but could make excuse due to your age that you have a lot of homework, etc...) This stable owner will meet with a bad reputation all of her own (as if she hasn't already!) so don't feel guilty for caring. I would leave quietly, safely, and be glad you aren't the next to be injured. God Speed! You'll find somewhere better I'm quite certain :)
