Chingaz, I've been following this from the beginning but there are a lot of things that don't make sense to me.

As I understand, this friend decides to have her parents buy her a horse and suddenly one appears and she is going to show it? What about boarding/pasture/fencing/stables? What about feed, tack, trailers? How about simple things like saddling and bridling the horse? How does it go from no horse to full blown showing in one week? Who showed her how to do the simple things like feeding, grooming, putting a saddle on?

I have a hard time believing that any parent would simply supply a horse and all that goes with it because a 10 year old suddenly wants it. There is just something not right with the whole post or a whole lot missing.

Help me out here.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

^ yeah I was kind of thinking the same thing. Unless you have preexisting facilities or equipment in which doesnt seem to be the case here it doesnt really gel.

While I HAVE seen parents buy horses/whatever because dearest child wants but still it doesnt gel.

This is what I have been told, the horse came with saddle,bridle,rugs, ect. She has a 1 acer paddock at her house and the horse gets one biscute of hay a night. She was at school today with a broken leg. I asked her how her horse was.....I got a reply of what horse. The horse was delieved by its old owners. I am wondering where this horse has gone. If it went back to its old owners or not. I've got no clue how she worked out brushing/saddleing or anything like that.

Sounds more likely a big story from your friend.... a fantastic tale of a silly little girl that wants a more elaborate tale of how she broke her leg. lol

.....Hmmm yeah. funny way to make up a story of a broken leg

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky

Some of these girls I've met are insane. No two ways about it. My only question is : Did anyone actually SEE this horse? Or was it all off this girl's word? Could be some weird way to get attention. eh. I dunno. Just sounds fishy.

Oh boy. This isnt the first time I have heard of this happen. A girl I know, nervous-est rider in the history of man, wont even trot and her parents bought her an unbroken arab. Mother, with no experiance in horses, attempts to break in horse, her exact words being 'well how hard can it be?' gave up and left horse in paddock for four years. Good news is, he's be re-broken and now ridden by two little girls who adore him. But what got me was the parents blamed the horse.......

Hmmm, She had photos but she could just take photos of any random horse. He didn't really look like an arab either.
