How stupid can you get?? *rant*

Ok guys, Im pretty some of you know that I am training my friends 6 year old TB, Dispationate.

Anyway, they live on my friend's, dad's plot. And also on his plot is an adjoining house type thing where his business partner lives (I think that's him). Anyway. my friend's dad hired a groom, he works full time and I must say he is exellant (sp?)

So with the groom there, my friend and her family felt it would be fine to go away on holiday. I went over once a wek to see to their plants and just say hi to the horses, I diddnt ride at all, and neither did the groom. So the day before everyone came home, I went over to check on things, and noticed Dispationate had a saddle mark on his back. I checked him over for anything, but he was fine thank goodness.

The next day I told the family, and her dad got down to the truth. It turns out that his partner'd daughter had come down when no one was there, TACKED UP Dispationate, and rode him for 3 HOURS! Not gentle riding either!! The thing that gets me is she doesnt know how to ride or tack up, but somehow dhe did. The groom wasnt there, he had gone up to his house. No one blames him.

Now apparently Dispationate reared with her, something he has NEVER done! If she had gotten hurt, it would have landed on my friend's dad, as they are his horses. She knew she wasnt allowed on them, so I just wonder what possesed her to do it? She could've gotten really hurt, along with the horse!!! She was punished though, and everythings back to normal.

Sorry, I know that all prob. doesnt make sense, but I just had to vent. Cookies if you read it all, and understood it lol.

Every girl wants their own LOVE STORY, I found mine... :)

Yes I did. I explained to her that he could've hurt her, or she could've hurt him. He is an OTTB that I am training, he could easily have spooked with her. But she knows now, so it wont happen again.

That's horrible though I'm kinda in the same postion. I keep my horse at my cousin's and these people are stacking wood for them. "somehow" there 2 year old son got in with the horses...and the fence was electric. When my cousin told me, she was furious cause they were told not to go by the horses and you know how easy a horse could have hurt him?? I think some people these days have a respecting the rules issue.

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

If I were the owners, I'd be so beyond pissed if someone rode my horse without permission...

What in the world was she thinking? I hope she was punished severely.
She'd be in some major trouble if she took my horse out and rode him without permission. Thank goodness no one got hurt.

Oh yes! Her punishment is severe. My friends dad is so angry at her, and so am I. Apparently she figured out how to tack him up; with everything backwards, using the wrong bridle with the bit high in his mouth, with the saddle blanket all crumpled up on his back, with the girth to loose. No wonder he reared with her. I think any horses would've. But she, or the horse could've gotten SO hurt, it's actually scary. And plus she could have messed up all of the hard work I've put into him! But thankfully he's fine, and is still a calm, sweet boy :)

I think she owes Dispationate a nice warm bath and a massage and a few hours of hand grazing for that.

That is terrible. Good thing that the horse wasn't hurt. Just for the future, whoever is in charge of the barn and horses might want to get a posted sign that says "Not responsible for accidents" or something similar. Just whatever it takes to protect yourselves from the stupid people of the world.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
