Angry Oh. My. Gosh.

There is this girl, Emma at my barn and she is just PISSING ME OFF!
She has a serious lying problem. & also treats her horses like crap.
She had a mare, Louise, on lease. I was there the day she met her, and Louise's owner said to her specifically, "If you lease her, you have to ride her FIVE DAYS A WEEK." Emma said she would & she got Louise on lease.
She barely ever rode her. She rode her maybe twice a week, sometimes only once. Louise had too much energy to be penned up like that. She started getting a little nutty. Emma had other people ride her, but only when it was absolutely necessary. (Like if she wasn't planning to ride her at all that week.) She became terrified of her. She bought the mare a new saddle (a horrible one, may I add; it was plastic.), a bridle, saddle pads, halters, brushes, ect, yet never rode her. She had her from maybe, December to March, and then she was too scared of her, and she just gave up.
Now she's leasing Jaun. He's a REALLY sweet mustang, who I did a little work on before she got him. She never rides him either!! I know people who have taken him into the field & let him run & he hasn't even done anything, yet she is scared to ride him past a walk!! When she does take him past a walk, she just fallows behind another horse! Now, if she's a nervous rider, that's fine, but she claims she is "amazing on him"! >.< There were a few more ridiculous things... she bought him splint boots, which he doesn't need, and put them on the wrong feet.. she bought him saddle pads, halters, ect. when she is only going to lease him for two months...it goes on.
In addition to all this, she has lied about;
1) ownership of horses.. she still claims she owns Louise but is selling her.
2) She says the BO bought Louise "for her".. (she had her before Emma ever had interest in her.)
3) She says Jaun is from Mexico, but he is from Spain.
& A LOT of others. She also claims Louise is scared of people & a total nutcase... But Marissa (good friend of mine) rode her yesterday and she was PERFECT!! So that's obviously a lie. ._.
Needless to say, I'm fed up... But IDK what to do about it..

There is nothing to do about it. The lies she may choose to tell have no bearing on you and you have no bearing on her life. Avoid her and her drama whenever possible and move on.

Well I am constantly caught up in her lies, plus I really love her horse & I feel bad for him, because he's not getting any exercise & it's really not fair to him. He was also doing SO well with me and now he's going to be where he started again. =\

How do you know she isn't riding them? Are you there everytime she is? And why is it a big problem that she bought the horses new things even if she isn't going to be having them long? She can use them on other horses, it's not like the equipment is one horse only. I'm really failing to see why you find it a big issue that she bought these horses things.

Sounds like she needs a little more confidence and a lot more education.
Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be much you can do. Offer to ride her horse when she can't, and if she doesn't want you too than I would simply avoid her when you can as it's not really up to you what she does with her lease. If you really see something that she is doing wrong, I'd talk to the horse's actual owner and see what she says.

I know for a fact she never rides her horses. I talk to her every day, she doesn't go to the barn often, and I have talked to the other leasers/owners who are there whenever she is & are very fed up with her.
Well buying her horses things isn't bad, it's just weird. Also, she gave all the things she'd bought for the mare to the mare's owners instead of keeping them, and plans to do the same with Jaun too...

Theres nothing really too do, shes not hurting you in any way. She likes to buy her horses things, she probably has a confidence problem if she has to lie that much, and horses dont vulenteer to work, theyre jsut as happy standing in a feild eating grass all day.
I had a friend who used to lie like that, and she thought she was the best rider ever, i just let her do her thing and eventually she grew up and has turned into my best friend.
You dont really know everything thats going on in her life, maybe something big is going on, no matter how well you know a person, you still never know. My best friends dont know the things that are going on in my life, they think everything is great.

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

What's so bad about buying her lease horse saddle pads? I have two for Thumper and I only lease him :). He also has tons of other stuff that I've bought him :P. Halters can be used on a different horse if she stops leasing him. So can bits, bridles, etc. if they're the right size. My instructor has a couple different bridles, one that is only going to get used when I need to show in her pelham. I don't think it's ridiculous or anything... stuff accumulates when you're involved with horses :P.
If that horse absolutely needs to be ridden more and it seems to be getting to be an actual serious problem instead of just a harmless annoyance, then talk to the horse's owner if something needs to be done about it.

The BO is doing nothing about it. I don't know why. :\
Yeah, but I don't understand why she buys him all of this and then gives it away to the barn. Plus she has mentioned to me that her dad doesn't like her wasting all this money on these things :\\
