Well this is a new one for me.

As I'm window shopping on equine.com, I stumble across a baby of the stud I used train & show 10 yrs ago. I LOVED that stud, last I heard he had been gelded Appearently not, and the baby was a yearling.

So here's where it gets interesting. There's several pictures of me riding and showing on the add, their website, and FB page. Thankfully they all make me look good, LOL.

The owner and I didn't end on bad terms, but not good terms either. I found out I was preggers and she decided to send him out of state for training until I was able to ride the following season (I was super sick with my daughter). Then, basically in the middle of the night she up and left her hubby, her farm and took the horse, the trailer, and the tack and disappeared. Except that some of the tack she took with her was mine. I had left it there because I used it just for that horse, and since the plan was for me to pick up where we left off after I had the baby, it just made sense to keep it with the horse.

I tried to contact her for awhile since we got along well, I missed the horse, and I wanted my stuff back (about $300 worth). But after awhile I gave up and just didn't think about it anymore...until tonight.

So here's my conundrum, I think I could care less she's using the pictures (credit would be nice, but not necessary). I kinda really would like my stuff back, but it's been so long I wouldn't be surprised if it's long gone or she says she doesn't remember.

The whole thing has me all weirded out (I can't really think of a better way to put it). Like I said, I'm not upset about the pics, just surprised

If you are not concerned about the photos, then I'd take it as a compliment, she must think the horse is looking at its best with you riding it.

As far as your stuff. I'd contact her and ask for it. If she truly left in the night maybe she was in an abusive relationship and just had to get out of there. The last thing on her mind then would have been your stuff.

Even if it's not the case, what's the harm in asking for it back? Even a thief would expect to be challenged.

You could start the conversation with a "Hey! Saw your ad! How have you been? How are the horses? Remember when...? Hey, I always wanted to ask you. Do you know what happened to my monogrammed leather halter with the zebra print poll strap?"
