I have to agree with Maggi, Cowgirl.

Why would you let these asshats continue to ride your horse, especially since they have 10 of their own?

It's not your responsibility to provide them with sane, well broke horses. If they're so ****ed wealthy, they need to invest in a decent trainer for their beasties.

Oh... these people no longer have the horse. It was stopped and was a big blow up a few months ago. I only go, cause another friend, on the same team is using one of my horses. So, me and these people that have the problem, have nothing to do with each other, except seeing them at practice. I still go because the lady who is riding my filly now, is a very green rider, so Im working with her on my horse.
And I have been nothing but kind and polite to the people who had my horse a few months ago, and then they say this stuff, and then Im the first they call when they have problems with their horses.... so Im tired of helping people who constantly talk about me when im not around....
But at the same time, I think well if I don't give them the number and the horse dies, Im goin to feel bad. That's why im so torn what to do.
I had thought about making a list of all the vets with their numbers and giving it to them. And telling them that is my last help I would appreciate it if you didnt ask my help anymore... and you keep my name out of your mouth.

Many people have sighed for the 'good old days' and regretted the 'passing of the horse,' but today, when only those who like horses own them, it is a far better time for horses. ~C.W. Anderson

This exactly.

Print out a list, hand it to them and say, "Here. Hang this up on your refrigerator, and stop calling me. I don't appreciate the things I've heard that you've said about me, and this is the last time I'm giving you this information."

Yea. I mean Im 22 and these people are in their 40s. And so far I have definitely been the more mature in this matter. And Im trying to keep it that way. And this seems like the most mature and honest way I can think of.

That sounds like a great solution to the problem. It covers all your bases. Just make sure to write a very complete list.

You guys are too nice. I would take an extra copy of the boring 'ol phone book and put post its on the pages with the appropriate numbers on it and give that to them.

Or scan in those pages and highlight and email to them.

Hahaha.... this is very funny. I usually have a little bit of a vindictive side. But with my sister dating my friend/someone in their family... im trying not to rock the boat to much.
Of course come xmas, my friend is asking for his horse for xmas (because all the horses belong to everyone). And if they actually make her only his, he is going to move her out to my house, on my 5 acres... so there will be a lot of waves then Im sure.

I'd just not pick up the phone (if your friend has own number of course). That usually solves the problem.
