    I have only ever owned 1 horse, Nugget, the one I still own and love!! I go visit the horse that I used to have lessons on, Pepper. Does that count???? I wish I could see the old horse I used to ride Blaze, but unfortunatly he had to be put down cause he broke his leg when he was playing with some friends!! I hope this counts!!!

    I still don't know if I'm going to go visit her. It's been over four years since I've had any contact with the barn owner so it might be really weird. Plus I have no way of contacting the owner and I don't want her freaking out at me for visiting Lola without her permission. But it is a lesson barn so people the owners of the boarding horses don't know would be there a lot... I don't know what to do. It might just make things worse. I really regret selling her.

    The owner cants stop you from physically looking at a horse. Alot of boarding stables that give lessons around here are open to the public. People can't go in and groom any horse or take them for a walk but people can look at your horse and pet their nose (it happens). They have pony parties, lots of lessons for all ages, open houses for potential boarders and lesson kids, holiday parties, shows. I've gone to barns I used to board at too see how the horses were. I've gone to the barn with friends to watch lessons. If its a larger place all you can do is monitor the people there. The barn owner can certainly let them onto the facility to see the horse. Its what happens when you agree to board anywere. But don't go playing with her without permission from the owner.

    If anyone is that concerned about their horse they should be on private property, not a boarding facility.

    I personally wouldnt go back, unless I was 100% happy with the situation. It would give me heartache otherwise.

    For the exception of one, I don't. I don't normally like to. I've sold them, I move on. I find it's to hard to go back and see a horse and see how they've progressed and how well they're doing. To me it's difficult because I do thru the "had I kept him, this is how gorgeous he would have turned out" type issue. I've sold the horses I've worked with for a good and solid reason and I rather just know they are in good hands and leave it at that.

    As for the one mare I sold tho, she is the apple in my eye and the people who bought her, are exceptional so I can't wait to see how she will turn out. For me she always was a very exciting project and because of her fabulous temper and her breeding makes me really excited to see how she will turn out.

    Im sure the family I bought my mare from would be sad to see her as a pasture puff, but happy to see she's still with me. I called them a few months after I bought her, to let them know how it was going. That was about 4 years ago. But I still have the number somewere.

    I'm the opposite, I sold my horse to a decent nervous rider. No way he will be the same training as when he was sold. It was hard enough when my parents started riding him and he lost his responsiveness.

    That's the same reason I want to sell him before college, I don't want to see his training backslide

    I just royally screwed up the entire situation with her. If I were able to tell myself I sold her for a good reason and had thought through the whole thing and was sure before I went and did it I would be fine with it. But it wasn't something I thought about and I never even went to say goodbye to her (which may sound stupid but it's important to me). I never even spoke to the person she was sold to. I know I did the right thing for her at the time but I guess I maybe just have some unresolved issues with the whole thing.

    I just gave Cinnamon to a friend of mine. Wish that I have never done that but I did can't go back on it now. I call them from time to time to see how she is doing. The best thing is that if they decide that they do not want her no more than she comes directly back to me. I had them sign a contract stating that so that if they make that decision then I know that she will not be sold to anyone else.
