Phantom, I am so glad you took a stand. It will undoubtably put a strain on your friendship, but better to have a live friend who is mad at you than an injured/deceased friend that was allowed to do something stupid. When I was a teenager, I "ratted out" a friend who was experimenting with drugs. It caused some pretty serious problems between us, and between her druggie new friends and me. However, in the end, our friendship won out over the drugs and her "cool" crowd. We are great friends still, 40 years later.

Cali- Thanks me too. I am prepared for her to blow up at me but I really don't care somewhere down the road she will realize I did this for her own safety. He'll let me know Tuesday after her lesson how it went....I'm praying she doesn't get to me first but if she does I will be ready.

I too am very glad that you took a stand, and didn't let one "bad" conversation with her parents make you give up trying to explain the dangers. That is one awesome trainer, to have taken your letter so well, e-mailed you back, so you know that he got it, and is going to do something about it. I too would much rather have a friend mad at me because I did everything I could to try and keep her safe, then give up after having conversations that didn't go anywhere with her and her parents. Hopefully the trainer can get through to her and her parents, definitely keep us updated, and if not, then at least she won't have many choices of places to go, and trainers to work with. Might help her pull her head out of the clouds.

Nope. Horse would be feeding a hungry person if it were up to me. I've dealt with a few chronic rearers, and to me there is nothing scarier but that moment when they go up, and you're wondering which side they're going to land on. I've wised up since those days and will stay away from a chronic rearer.
The horse economy is so poor right now that you can get a well-broke, pretty as you please horse for a few hundred.... Why would anyone risk their lives trying to play the hero?

Way to go Phantom! Glad the BO was so receptive and smart about it! Of course your friend will have a fit and get mad at you, but she will get over it and eventually figure out that you pardoned her from a death sentence. Hope it all works out!

Thats great that he's received your concerns so well and is going to do something about it

Kudos to you Phantom. It is truly a rare thing to see someone your age willing to go to this extent for something you believe. I congratulate you, (and your parents) for doing a great job. I will also say that that is the kind of BO and trainer we all hope to have for us, our horses and our kids.

Stand firm on your beliefs, and don't let her get to you. You know we are all here to support you if you need it. She is a spoiled brat, and it is really sad that from the sounds of it her parents are more willing to throw $$ at the issue than spend time and devotion it takes to really parent.

Again-pat yourself on the back. You did a great job.

Well done! Hope she will understand in the long run what you did for her. Cause once she finds out after that talk Tuesday your in for a ride of you life. To me she sounds like a person that won't stop at getting kick out of boarding from where she boarding know. 10-1 she will still get him even if the trainer says no. Hopefully he'll tell her that she probable won't be able to board at any other stable so that should give her something to think about. Also the show.

Sorry one quick question. Have you see him? Another words is he a real looker. Hopefully she doesn't want him because he has nice looks. She may just be trying to show off to friends. Bad way to get hurt. I learned that. Good thing I wasn't on a horse trying to show off though.
