Theres tons of backstory to this,as I've worked at this barn for 4 years, had a horse there for 2.Im basicaly what you would call the barn manager, working alongside the BO everyday (she likes doing most of the stalls herself lol).Ive become very close friends with the BO over the years and she confides just about everything to me and vice versa.
Her daughter is the barns trainer and a **** good one as far as her ability and understanding of horses.Salem and I would be lost had it not been for her assistance with bringing him this far.Its never been a secret that my trainer is a very lazy girl (I frequently find her saddles left out, garbage she leaves around, trail equipment she leaves in the arena, etc.) she's never had to support herself and recently moved back in with her parents.The BO has always done everything for her-shes basicaly just spoiled silly.She keeps all her horses at the barn and doesnt pay a cent to her mother for their feed or care (besides feet and vet) and pays nothing to live with her mom.
The BO has been having financial issues and her daughter offers no help, she's too busy going shopping,bar hopping and NOT working with the horses she keeps buying herself for resale.Recently she made a comment to her mother that was downright WRONG and I've just had enough.I realize its not my business,and that the BO created this problem for herself by never making her daughter be responsible but.....
I place a TON of value on a persons morale and character.At this pointe I can't even be in the same room with the girl ,Im so disgusted with her. I have seen what a selfish, crappy person she is and I can't unsee that and now I don't even want her for a trainer-I don't care to hand my hard earned cash over to that bratty wench.
But part of me knows that since I don't have the knowledge to properly train Salem myself (at least not without it taking twice as long and being twice as confusing for Salem) and the BO doesnt allow other trainers to come in,that I am in a bit of a pickle. I don't want to deprive Salem of excellent training because of my personal dislikes but I can't even stand to look at her.....any advice?
