Cross that one off your friend list & good riddance too.
You should be mad at her for cutting down your horse but she only did that as you said, to get back at you. You were not in the wrong here. She's being a baby who didn't get her way. She also didn't care who she put in danger-no one needs a friend like that.
Go & enjoy your wonderful horse. You did a good & brave thing.

I'm so sorry, that would be so hard. I couldn't imagine losing a friend after 6 years, but honestly, if she treated you like that....just let her go. You did the right thing, you did all you could. She's going to go find another nutcase to ruin even further, and it won't be your fault when she's in the E.R. Hopefully her parents can stop this from going any further. Don't take the comments on Phantom to heart, she obviously knows where to hurt.

Sometime it just plain ol' sucks to be the bigger person and do the right thing. Be proud of yourself for doing what was right. She will eventually see that you did this FOR her not TO her.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

wow unfortunately the only way this girl is going to learn is when she does get hurt. I remember being young and invincible lol. Hopefully one day she will realize what you are doing for her, you are a good friend that put her safety above your friendship. I lost a good friend to a similar kind of thing and it did hurt for a while but then I came to realize I was probably better off this way. Go enjoy your horse and you will meet more horsey people, there are tons of us out there. :0)

HEY! i like your horse. He's Beautiful. She doesn't know what shes talking about. She's so blind with being number one that she didn't she the danger in that horse. Also you can't make a horse do something if it doesn't want to. Another heart brake you saved her from. i'm glad her mother understood. It's the evil 16!! i tell you. I'm 16 and find my self being very different. but I've noticed she hasn't. She should be lucky to have a friend like you. I'd done the same thing. Hopefully she'll see that you help her. But if she has other friends. Well there just going to keep on reminding her what you did. hopefully they'll do it in a good way instead of telling her you did wrong.

I think you did the right thing even if it costs you a friendship. Plus I'm not sure how good of a friend she was to talk to you like that.

Wow... Two things that stand out to me about this -

1. She sounds like a huge jerk. Even if the rest of the time she's super sweet and nice (which I doubt), that reaction would be enough for me to say "no thanks, have a nice life."

2. Why are her choices, dangerous rearing horse, or "horse that sucks". Does a horse have to rear to be considered good? That seems to be what she's assuming. If you ever talk to her again, you should mention you aren't against her getting a project horse to work with, just against getting a dangerous project horse that killed someone. Maybe you could mention that to her mom when she does your hair.

And that she thinks she can train a horse to jump 4 ft in two weeks? Ugh...she might be able to get it over 4 ft, but she won't have done it correctly... I hope she loses that way of thinking.

I do sympathize with you Phantom. You really did the right thing, and it's a shame she didn't see it that way. Ignore the mean things she said about Phantom, she just knew what would hurt the most and was trying to manipulate you and make you feel bad. Don't give it any thought.

I hope you find some other local horse friends there. If she's going to treat you in that manner, she doesn't deserve the honor of being your friend.

You did the right thing. Someday she'll see that, it just might take a long time. She KNOWS in the back of her mind somewhere that the horse isn't right for her, she just refuses to admit it because she's so bent on getting a horse, ANY horse.

And booooo on her for insulting Phantom.
