Its a private barn, my family owns it. The horse was not for us to try though, it was for a friend. This question was not about the lameness of the horse. He can be ridden and he is a good horse, the person, however, rides very very hard and does show. This horse going lame all the time would not fit her needs. If she was a light rider, she'd probably buy the horse. So, please, don't judge us unfairly. We are very loving horse people. There was no board arrangement since it was for this person to use. It was at the most supposed to be a 30 day trial, so we are passed that. She alerted them 2 weeks in maybe sooner that she definately did not want the horse and they could come pick it up. They agreed. I know Pennsylvania to north carolina is a long way so we've been patient.
