How to know your horse is not being worked at the trainers.

These she's have been in this mare for about 2 months. Not only are the brand new looking the nail heads are not even wore down. This also brings up how do you know the trainer who claims to be a reining trainer and the farrier who the trainer claims is a good farrier is not. As you can see even at 2 months you can see the poor farrier work.

Are those sliders on while the horse is turned out on slippery grass?

That picture was taken when she came home and I was holding the lead. However yes I do turn out my rieners on grass with their plates on. They are alone and since they are worked every day they do not do a lot of running around. Plus they know they have plates on and know how to use themselves so not really a big deal. However the grass does need to be dry. So they come in every night or when it rains or any time the grass is wet or damp.

I am still debating on what I want to do about it. She knows I know and when I went back today to pick up the horses blankets that they did not return with the horses she would not even look at me or talk to me. So...

So the trainer didn't ride, had less than stellar (i'm guessing) work done by a farrier on your horse AND didn't return the horses "clothes"? Wow... :(

Did you sign a contract saying horses would be worked x amount of days for x amount of money? If so, bring it in and demand your money back, and find a new trainer.

That is completely disrespectful and outrageous that a trainer, that is paid to work your horse, doesn't do her job. My thinking is, You paid and got no results, you get your money back.

My trainer wasn't able to work one of my horses for 5 days due to a family member passing away. She told me to keep the horse there an extra week so she can make up the time that was missed out on.

Yep that summs it up quite well.

Furious would be an understatement. At the very least I would expect every single penny I paid to be returned.

The one time I sent my horse off to a trainer, he sent me a schedule of when he was working with my horse so I could come watch and wanted to give me a demonstration of my "finished" horse and a lesson with me riding her after he was done (I declined all of it, I had sent her to ensure she was safe before giving her away).

The trainer is not a good trainer & doesn't ride the horse for pretty much 2 months? Did you chose her through recommendations? I am wondering how an accomplished horseperson such as yourself gets duped? What a waste of your time & money, sorry this happened to you.
