    I'm glad you've got this resolved, but next time you don't have the time to go somewhere to talk face-to-face;pick up the 'phone! If you have time to type out a message, you have time to dial a number.

    In the truly adult world you must treat people with respect by talking to them, being honest with them, and facing up quickly to situations that you are uncomfortable with. And I promise, it gets easier the more you do it

    Well she messaged me back, and her response was a positive one! She said she understood and that it was good I get mileage on a different trainer. I'm very happy this turned out well, although now I see I overreacted a little in the first place. I am happy though because I can see she truly cares and is still a good friend to me. Thank you all again for advising me to do the right thing.

    You should definitely be honest with her. If you aren't comfortable with telling her all of your true feelings, at least tell her the truth and say that you are now riding at a new barn, thank her for all your experiences there, apologize for waiting so long to say something, explain that you were nervous to do so, and if she asks why you left, be honest and say it's something personal you'd rather not get into.

    God bless!
