Sounds annoying...I'd just stay away from her. I know you don't want to hear this, but you'll run in to this type of person over and over in your life. If it's not with a horse, it will be with a car, or with a career. You just can't let them get to you, waste of energy because you can't change them.
It is believe me! I do, but she goes to school with me, is friends with my best friend, goes to the same shows as me, and I see the horse's for sale ads online. I don't think it would bother me as much if I didn't know two of the horses personally. Like the Suffix Punch I used to ride a lot, and was actually going to bring to stay at my house but he can't be stalled and all my horses come in at night (rule).

Her dad is like her mom and her's slave, and he brings in a LOT of "moolah". LOL. When they got the Warmblood though they had to take out a second mortgage. Most of the horses she has though were fairly cheap. The Suffix Punch she just brought home and called her own, the paint gelding was about 600, and the mare with hip problems was about 500.
How can she sell horse#1 if she doesn't own him?
There are worse fates a horse can suffer than being in a pasture. I'm sure he doesn't mind.
She technically can't but because his real owner never goes to see him or anything she won't know the difference, or that's what Kia thinks. And the owner won't sell him even for three times what he's worth even though she never sees him, people have tried.
IMO pasture pets should be either ponies or horses that are retired or can't be ridden for health reasons. I hate seeing a young (and well trained!) horse sitting in a pasture if it could be doing what it enjoys; in this situation the horse loved dressage, and he was amazing at it. When my instructor rode him he got all excited when he knew he was going to a show.
If you can't ride the horse, sell it and buy something that is at your level of riding. If someone on here said "I'm going to buy this grand pre warmblood because I have the money to, even though I'm only beginner novice" then everyone would be like "OMG NO!!!!".
