    ^^this is what I am discovering. The lease is pretty iron clad, IMO but the cost of persuing this in a leagal way is just unrealistic. Makes me wonder why some contracts exist at all. It just boggles my mind how someone can take a commitment like this so lightly. I'm so not like that I have a hard time wrapping my mind around it. This woman is being very non-comunicative. Not answering her phone or responding to emails. Hence, I am going in person to her farm to straighten this out. Will resist the urge to jersey her....(sorry, too much play-off hockey!)

    Yeah my first concern would be getting the horse home and finding somewhere for him to go .... Then i'd deal with that women . People can be so frusterating sometimes . The best I would do is send her the bill for trailoring . I had a girl pull out on a lease with me too she was leasing for a month and then she told me ( text me ) as of that moment she wasnt leasing anymore :s . I fought and fought that she still had to pay me for the month because it was her choice to back out with no notice , there was no winning with her * sigh * but its the principal of following up with her so maybe she'll learn for next time.

    Good luck on getting thing figured out , It sucks when you have an experience like this makes you never want to lease out again !

    I highly enjoyed you saying you'd jersey her haha get your money first then do it and RUN ! :P

    This situation stinks...i feel for you! I would talk with her BO and make sure that she wasn't getting her money back. I would see if they could keep him there until you had an open stall. If the horse is at a really nice facility, they arent going to let anything bad happen to him. Especially if the BO is someone that you know and trust. That way, you will have a trailer, a place to put the horse and she will be out her board money. Since you wont see a penny from this girl, make sure she doesnt see a penny of that board money back.

    Geez, what is it in the air that is making everyone screw over their lease partners???

    But perhaps your horse could be field boarded at your stable just for the few weeks?
        06-04-2010, 04:31 PM
    So I went to the facility where my horse is to see the woman. My horse looks very happy and is getting on well with his new buddies. That was a relief.
    The woman was very unapologetic. She says her hubby has injured and has to go on disability so that is why she can't keep him. I am trying to be understanding here, but I still feel like she has to take some responsibility in the situation.
    The BO is judging out of the country this week so I couldn't speak to her. I spoke with her hubby though, and explained the situation. He said the board is paid in full for the month so the horse can stay. The woman I leased to is not to have any contact with my horse. He offered to get one of their assistant trainers to do some work on him for a reduced rate to help get him sold faster and for a better price. Selling a horse out of their place almost guarantees a better price so that is a good thing. I can't ride him myself as I'm 32 weeks along in my pregnancy and the horse is green.
    I think I will take him up on the offer and put soe miles on my horse for a little extra $$. We'll see. I'm just super happy that I have a safe and secure place to leave him for the month and I'm not out of pocket for the next 30 days. I nicely but fiirmly told her that I expect her to call me and inform me when the shipper will be delivering my horse at the end of the month. She didn't say too much...

    Aw yay I am glad you found a good solution and that the BO's husband is being understanding and helpful.

    What a wonderful outcome to a crappy situation. Maybe it was meant to work out this way and it just took a seriously stressful detour to get you there?
        06-04-2010, 05:43 PM
    Eeek...stressful is an understatement. Again, I'm going to blame it on pregnancy hormones, but this whole situation got me pretty upset. I think it's that I had resigned myself to selling my horse than was elated that I got to keep him because of the lease. Now I'm deflated because I do have to sell him, and ASAP. Oh well. I guess this is the best outcome of a crappy situation.
    Thanks for all your support, guys.
    Oh, and if anyone in Ontario wants to buy a nice reining bred palomino gelding, get in touch!
        06-04-2010, 05:59 PM
    He's purty, but I don't do reining, I'm not anywhere near Ontario, and I already have my horsey quota at the moment.

    Yes, preggers hormones will make you weepy one minute, and violent the next.

    Sorry it didn't work out with the lease, but I bet this new situation will turn out to be the best for all of you, the horse included.

    I don't understand why a shipper would be involved for your horse that is 10 min away???? No one would be shipping my horse any where. And you have a trailer??? Any way sounds like you have it worked out. Small claims court is not expensive so that isn't an issue if you decide to pursue a claim.
