    I used to be like you, avoiding conflict. I'd tell my mother and then tell her "Tell me I can't loan it" She'd say the words then I was able to say "My mother told me I can't loan it". Somehow blaming her made it easier.

    I wish I could get my mom or dad to do that but im 21 and everything that I do with horses and my horse I do on my own. The deal I told my dad was that he wouldnt have to pay a cent for my horse or anything I did within the equestrian world. So far I've kept that promise. I know that if something big did happen like my horse having a couple thousannd dollar vet bill he would have no problem helping but I hope ill never have to ask for that. So right now as far as the saddle loan im keeping it at my apartment because im cleaning it and hopefully she will decide to go buy her own. Its a little passive agressive but unfortunately that's how I am :)

    Painted, I understand where you're coming from. When I was your age I'd rather avoid a conflict if I could, but I'd jump in with both feet if people continued to press.

    If she asks to use it again, just tell her no. ' No' really is a complete sentence. You don't need to offer any explanations or excuses. It's your saddle, after all. Telling someone no is very empowering, and will give you the ability to continue to say it.

    This girl abused your trust and didn't respect your property. She doesn't deserve to use your equipment. I recently had someone I trust ask to borrow my horse trailer. I said yes. When they asked to borrow my truck to haul it with, I said no so fast it broke the sound barrier. I don't lend my truck, period.

    Thanks for the advice. I don't blame you on the truck lol that is something I would quickly say no to too. I more than likely wont let her use it again. I originally told her she could use mine until she got her own because when she came a while ago she had just moved here from out of the country and didn't have any tack. She was suppose to be looking for her own saddle. I have even tried to help her with finding one but she doesn't see to want to look. So for now my saddle will stay at home while I clean it and prob a little while longer and if she confronts me I will be straight forward with her. :/ thanks again for all the advice

    I have two Wintecs,( which I loooovvvee ) and simply use a very damp sponge or wash cloth with some dish soap to scrub and wipe it! And yea if I were you I wouldn't hose the saddle down, simply because the water could seep into the saddle (places you cannot dry) and actually mold! Sort of like a barbie doll that you would leave in the bath as a kid ya know? Hahaha! But yea I completely understand your thought placement on conflict among others. What I reccomend is just saying you need it back for something, and if she asks for it again, say that you need to use it for a while. Honestly if she can't respect others belonging, she doesn't deserve to use them!

    I would advise against hosing it off, it CAN get too wet and damage in interior. I like using a wet sponge and either a little woolite or dishsoap to wipe it down and spuce it up. Sometimes an old toothbrush is great to get into all of the little cracks and crevices. Don't use anything oil based as it can damage the synthetic. Best of luck with your situation! Be tough!

    Tell her that I am your aunt. Tell her, "My Aunt Celeste said that I absolutely cannot loan out any more equipment."

    I am pretty sure any mild soap and a cloth or sponge will work. Me, being the multitasker, I use the horse shampoo in the bucket left over from washing the horse. Then I wash brushes. All done, go have a beer.

    "I shouldn't have loaned it in the first place. Auntie Celeste will have a fit if she finds out" Let her think it's really Aunt Celestes. Good idea Celeste.
