The rescue woman did know that the horse would be going to my daughter. I went with her to pick it up and she told her in front of me. The sad part is that my daughter loves the horse. We didn't get the horse because she is free, we got her because we thought she'd make a good match for my daughter. If I got the horse for myself, I wouldn't hesitate to take her right back. As it is my daughters horse, I think I will speak to an attorney. If he thinks we can win then it would be worth the fight not to have to break my daughters heart. If our chances aren't good, then no need delaying the inevitable. Either way, I am having the vet out tomorrow...just in case. Everyone who knows me, know that I take very good care of my horse. We are a good family for Hope...this whole thing is wrong on so many levels
We really may be better off just letting her go.
As for the crazy trainer....I will never forgive her for doing this to my daughter and my daughter knows that she will not be taking lessons from her again (not that she wants to....my poor daughter is very upset)
