    Frankly this sounded like a live action horse version of Jerry Springer. After all the insults you threw at her, I'm surprised she didn't punch you in the face. Then you could punch her back for calling you a two faced ****? Then you two could key each others parent's cars, and slash tires perhaps? Maybe you could set her up so it looked like she stole money from the barn? And then later in life, steal her boyfriend and then rub it in her face?

    Don't worry about getting in trouble, it's perfectly acceptable for YOU to act that way, you were just looking out for the horse's welfare.

    :roll:
    Totally agree!

    I am totally missing how only the other person is wrong here. Honestly, you are the one who started the issue.

    And for the record, though I do no think it is best or anything (I certainly do not do it with my horse) there are many many many horses who do jump every day and they have not died from it. Lesson horses who jump more than one lesson per day every day all over the place.

    So you ranting at someone might hold more weight if you were actually totally accurate in what you are ranting about.

    There's obviously bad blood between you two, and apparently has been for awhile.

    So what did you think you were going to accomplish by confronting this person?

    I have my doubts that you were polite, since you started out by ranting that her family had sold your family a lame horse.

    It's pretty apparent to me that you have a huge chip on your shoulder, and were being deliberately confrontational.

    My advice? Ride your own horse, and let other people do the same without sticking your nose into their business.

    Agreed all the way.

    But to point it off, in the beginning of the conversation I was not talking to her, I was talking to my friend whom is her friend, but she went and decided to comment and stick her nose where it doesn't belong. I never said anything to her about the horse, I never said anything to her.

    You obviously said something to her, per your own rant in the original post.

    If you do not like her then ignore her (politely). Yes, even when she sticks her nose into your conversation with a mutual friend.

    You were wrong here. Let it be a learning experience.

    I have to agree with ptvintage. Although you had good intentions, it really wasn't your business, nor your right to "attack" her the way you did.

    I do think it's great that you offered her constructive advice but offering advice is the most you can do when you don't own the animal or have any rights to it.

    I agree with Farmpony, Pvintage, SpeedRacer, etc.

    You need to learn how to approach "sensitive" topics way more appropriately if you really want to change something. From the way it sounds, she shouldn't have stuck her nose into your conversation. But you didn't need to call her a tool (even if I did laugh).

    Now instead of her possibly thinking she should look into the effects of everyday jumping on her horse.... she's too busy being pissed off at you to even consider that you may have had a point. Maybe if you would have reacted differently (i.e. Not calling her names) she would be at home right now doing some research. But now her pride's hurt and people don't back down from that easily. So you really didn't do any good at all.

    This doesn't sound like it was well handled by either side.

    How high will she be jumping him daily?

    TWH, I never really asked, I did point out to her that jumping height is a factor, because if you arent jumping super high.. than it doesnt have as much impact on the foot. (ex: 1 foot or less)
