So then we came to the issue of money. I did owe her some board for the horse but since I can't work, my boyfriend is paying all of the bills and we had to choose between buying food for us or paying the board. I had contacted the trainer and told her this. She said that the horse could either stay there and keep accumulating board or she would sell her for me and take the board cost out of her, plus commission. I said fine, lets do that. After noticing that she still hadnt posted her for sale, I asked her and she said that she had "more important things to do." I said wow, okay and left her be. Yesterday I was given a new cat to be a companion to my cat. I didn't think it was really any of her business, but she texted me and said "how come you can get a cat but can't afford to give me the board money you owe me?" Seriously. How does that even compare? After this, a huge argument happened and she told me that I'm an inadequate rider and that she overestimated my riding ability and that I'm not a good rider because I didn't get right back on the horse when I was bucked off. Well sorry if I didn't get right back up on the horse after having broken a rib, compressed my back, and couldn't even sit up or else I'd puke. She then began to say that "you don't see cowboys complain in the rodeo after they get bucked off." And that that is what makes a good rider a good rider. She then told me that it's my fault I didn't know how to ride a bucking horse. I told her that I had trusted her judgement, being the trainer and all, when she told me that the horse would be fine to get on. She said that its my fault, she would have been fine had I been a better rider. She then went on to compare a past injury of hers to mine to say that she doubts the extent of my injuries. She then explained that the price we agreed that she was worth, after te accident, was $900. She then told me that she based that price on her working with her but decided that she didn't want to and that she was only worth $400 and that I owed all of that to her. I decided that it wasn't worth the hassle anymore and just gave the horse to her. I told her I would be coming to pick up my tack within the next week but after further thought I went last night. I found that all of my brand new tack that hadn't even been on my horse was dirty and used, covered in black hair. My horse is sorrel and white. Also, half of my brushes were missing, which I found in a few of her other grooming totes. My unopened hoof conditioner was filthy and half gone. My slick n easy blocks were torn open and broken and my bridle was hidden.
Sorry for such a long post, I'm just so frustrated! I don't understand what I did wrong..
