I'm by no means a perfect rider, but I've got enough skill to be safe on the ground and in the saddle. I've never really felt taken advantage of until they told me what it would cost to half-lease the school horse. I felt like I have a good relationship with my trainer and that he would help me navigate some of this stuff, but my gut reaction was "Oh, god, he's in on it, too!"
I'm taking a lesson and talking leases with a new barn today. Hopefully that will help me to stiffen my resolve and help me to move on.
