its about time to stop dealing with this.......

Hey i was not sure if this would go under general or stables or ill just put it here haha

so as some of you know, ive been looking for horse for awhile now. ive found one that we are very interested in. so we have been keeping in touch with the owners of the horse for about a week now. just asking for x-rays and how much they would consider lower the price and such. well my trainer didnt know that we were talking to the owner. my trainer knew we were interested, just didnt know we were making phone calls to the owner. however the owner called her and asked if we were really serious about this horse. my trainer then told the owner that she didnt know if we were or not..when we told her we were.

that same day, my mom got a insulting email from my trainer talking about how we humilated her by just takling to the owner. it was to the point it put my mom in tears. and today my dad got another insulting email, only this time it wasnt about "embarassing" her. it was about me. in an extremley negative way. i am 13 years old and the email talked about how when my trainer was my age she rode six horses a day and had way more motavation. it was an extremley long email about how i apparently help no one at all at the barn where i got two horses sold for my trainer and show more than 1 of her sale horses at shows every weekend.

she continues to send harassing emails to my parents about our family and me. all of that just because it apparently didnt make her look "profesinal"

it was a very hard getting these, especially because we had such a good relastionship with her and never knew she would ever do such a thing. but last night we decided its time to move out of that barn. we have another show barn in mind that we will be going to now. it killed us to do it, but if shes going to have this kind of behavior its not worth it.

*sigh* Ugh.. yep I've dealt with my fair share of "interesting" trainers - and I've learned that it's best to just NOT deal with them. You made the best choice by moving.

Well i am glad to hear that you got out of that place. I think the trainor just way over reacted. To be honest, i wouldnt feel bad at all in livin that place. I mean you can't put up with people like that.

Glad everythin worked its self out.

I love my horse. She is the wind beneath my wings.

and that's a trainer?! I would go find someone else.

Find yourself another trainer and continue on with your horse search.
