In that case, I would definitely steer clear of her!

it seems she is just after attention(??) perhaps if no one acknowledges her, complements her, condemns her (etc.) she will stop and think?

Do you board? If so, why hasn't the BO stepped in to help the poor guy get shoes??

Hang in there!

No, she has a horsey family. They've always had horses. I am the only one that works with horses in my family. Most of the stuff I learned on my own. But she says her dady taught her this and that but does she reinforce it? Nope...

Ride more, worry less.

I would definately try to get a BO involved (if there is one in your situation) Her horse is probably not only dangerous to you and your horse, but to everyone else. Maybe if you speak to him/her they'd have a chat with your friend/her family.

But I'm not familiar with your situation so this might not work.

Good Luck, this is a difficult one, especially since she's your friend.

Your post was very difficult to read and understand. From what I think I understood, it sounds like her horse has gotten some bad habits worked out and she doesn't do anything. Because it is her horse, there isn't much you can do so the simple way of dealing with it is to stay away from her and the horse. I'm sure the barn can accommodate you tying your horse at the other end of the barn.
