    Ugh, you poor thing. I can relate to feeling a little meek in a situation like this. Although let's get it straight here. I would be absolutely furious. Whoever said the rider probably doesn't know is right. But again, we have no idea what your boarding agreement says, Italian customs, or how they perceive business. Maybe it's a normal thing in Italy?

    I know in my world it isn't ok. It's a serious liability and if that girl was hurt, you'd be at fault from a normal person's perspective. Your horse is your property. You didn't agree to lessons and you aren't' getting a discount on board for your horse being utilized in their program. I would speak to the BO ASAP.

    This is wrong in so many ways! I would be furious if my BO used my horse without my permission! First your horse could hurt the rider, but also what if the rider had no clue what they were doing and HURT your horse!
    Also personally I have seen this happen- horse, amazing personality and great training is turned into a lesson horse. The horse is obviously smarter then the rider and begins picking up bad habits. One horse I know now when you ask him to stop loping he charges straight to the center of the arena like it's time to be done. Another horse I know was a complete sweetheart and loved other horses, now after a year as a lesson horse beginners let her get away with murder, she kicks at other horses constantly and even a few time at people because they don't get after her for bad behavior. You don't want bad riders corrupting your horse!

    Yeah my blood pressure raised reading that post. Absolutely not. My horse is in training.

    I would be pissed beyond belief if someone put him in a lessons program. That wouldn't be fair to him AT ALL!

    When I kept one of my Saddlebreds, at the LAEC, it happened to me.

    At the LAEC, horses are kept stalled. My horse was taken out and ridden, every day except Saturday, which was my heavy day at work. He was even taken out on all holidays.

    I arrived as usual one Sunday, to find a saddle mark on my horse. A saddle mark? Not in a million years have I ever left a horse like that. Being early Sunday, there were not many people about. However, after asking around, I discovered my then boyfriend, had been trying to impress another girl and had allowed her to ride my horse. He had apparently told her that he owned the horse.

    I made sure that the boyfriend was no more and that the gate guards knew to not allow him in from then on. I also had others watch the horse for me, in the hours I was not there.

    I don't think I have ever been that angry and I'm quite sure the boyfriend never knew I had such language, in my repertoire!

    "How do you feel about your horse being ridden without your consent?"

    In a word? Homicidal. I'd be checking out other places to board ASAP.

    First of all, NO is part of any universal language and everyone, especially Italians understand it! I would have been shouting - !NO, NO, NO!! Policia Si!
    I think that would have gotten the message across loud and clear and I can
    Barely speak some spanish.

    Then, talk to your embassy because if you are an American living in a foreign country, then, you can at least get some help with this trainer. That should teach them to mess with you or your horse in the future. Adidios!

    If someone borrowed your car and took it for a drive without your permission and parked it where you left it, it would still be theft.
    I don't know if I would file charges, but I would be livid and definitely move my horse. I would also tell anyone I knew who had horses about what happened.
