Jordan, at this point it does not really matter why she does not want contact from you. Does it?
You will never know her reasons. All you are doing is getting yourself upset about it.

Your trainer has asked you to deal with her and not contact the seller. Accept that your trainer knows what they are doing with your new horse and stop worrying about the seller.

It it taking away your ability to enjoy your new horse.

I would never buy a horse from someone like you.

If you sell an animal, it's not yours anymore. You have no rights to it whatsoever, including updates and visiting.

If you can't bear the thought of never seeing or hearing about the animal again, then don't sell it. There are no strings attached when someone buys an animal. I give you money, and it's mine. You are no longer in the picture.

If someone offers to update you that's one thing, but a previous owner demanding updates and visiting rights doesn't fly with me.

I have kept in touch with the breeder that I purchased my horse from directly 9 years ago. She loves to hear how he is doing. She does training and re-training as well. That was one of the main reasons I purchased from her if the need was ever there for any reason. Now I am purchasing another horse from her. I think that the person you purchased from is hiding something. Too late now, hopefully everything works out for you. Good Luck

I would contact her and ask her if there is something wrong with trying to properly take care of a horse.. I would have been pretty ticked off, especially considering this is your first horse.. How would you know?! If I were selling a horse to someone, especially someone who had no experience owning a horse (as I don't right now!) I would help them out as much as possible just because I would want my horse to be well taken care of! Some people!

You know, actually, I was pretty peeved when I tried to contact the owner of the sire of my Aunt's mare (RIP Toi) because I wanted to know if she was bred at that stable.. They just wrote me a blunt email and said to ask someone else... And I was like really? You don't keep records on your horses? Jerk. :)

You you read the rest of the responses.

The seller probably had no idea who bought the horse. The horse was sold thru a broker.

When your trainer makes a deal thru a broker it is some what understood that you deal with your trainer and if there is a must need your trainer contacts the broker.

This was not the average back yard person selling to another back yard person.


The mistake here was really the adults (parents and trainer) not explaining to the young person some horse buying etiquette.

The point isn't that the seller didn't know who it was - she clearly knew who the buyer was after she asked what kind of bit the horse used. Had she asked can you explain the feeding schedule and tell me what I need to take care of her I can see frustration, but getting irritated because someone asked what kind of bit to use on a horse? I don't care if they went through a broker or not, that's just rude. She could have said, "Hey she uses a snaffle bit, but please contact the broker with any further questions! Thank you and I hope you enjoy her!"

But I guess expecting people to be polite is wrong..

Haha your good, I wouldn't have been able to think up such a polite way to say it.

I would put money on it that the owner did not know the answers to these questions.

Again, this a sale thru a broker. The horse is sent to a sales barn to be campaigned and sold. The owner has no idea what bit the trainer/broker used or what they fed the horse.
