The sending to slaughterhouses doesn't particularly bother me. The "don't worry-I'm going to find your horses a good home!" and then turning right around and shipping them does.
The horse industry is hard. People have to make a living however they can, especially if she doesn't have other means of income and doesn't have an education besides horse training. And as it says in the OP - what she found for these horses was a quick death. Flame me if you will, but I would much prefer these horses sent to a quick, relatively humane death than to sit starving in someone's field somewhere.
I think, without knowing the whole background, what she did wasn't the...best option. Surely to god she could have found some other way to make a couple bucks than conning owners, and yes, I do think if it's as black and white as the trainer taking horses with the promise of a good home then slaughtering them, what she did was bad (for lack of a better word). But I won't condemn her as twisted and evil without knowing more of the context.
