Last year I took on a student from a large single income family. She was great and I loved having her. She had a couple of hold ups because of prior training but as soon as she got her confidence up she did awesome and took all around at the last show we went too (that year) riding my horse. Well her mom's a fellow horse person and they owned 4 horses at that time. She told her daughter after she did so well riding my horse that she was no longer allowed to ride at my place or ride my horses, oh wait did I mention that at this same show her mother decided to compete directly against her and every time her daughter placed above her she got madder and madder to the point she was yelling at the child at the show and I quote: "your not the ms fancy pants you think you are and its only cause your riding Magic you even won a ribbon." So I lost a good student but of course it didn't end there I then get a phone call asking to borrow one of my child saddles with the promise to return it in a week from the daughter. I have never got it back no matter how many times I ask for it (I think the mom sold it). And I got some crazy completely insane texts from that woman when she tried to sale one of my green and I mean green students a horse that liked to flip over backwards and take off on people, saying she thought they would be a good match for each other and who are you to stand in the way of that. Oh lets see Only her freakin trainer that's all. Now the whole thing makes me laugh but last fall I wasn't laughing at all. Sometimes you just have to wipe your hands shake your head and say 'whatever' no shame in cutting connections with crazy people. Besides they are too crazy to know what they did and the only person loosing sleep over it is you. Seriously why punish yourself. Fool me once shame on you, Fool me twice shame on me.
