Misty update

Yesterday we made a round pen so I can work misty easier. Well we was working her and I had to come inside and when I went back out my brother in law had misty blindfolded and had my husband on her back. I was so aggravated. I tried not to rush her like you all said. I told him SHE WAS NOT READY for that but you can't tell him that. Well surprisingly misty done really good. My husband got off and my B.I.L got on. Once he got done we put her back in the field. Well today we was all going on a ride and he was going to take misty I was nervous because I know misty ain't ready but he said she will be ok. So this morning we woke up got ready went out to get the horses and misty acted like she has never been worked before I mean she was going crazy so we left her here. Did he mess up my horse by getting on her to soon? Why did she act like that after I have been working so hard with her. My brother in law said she needs a bullet in her head. I told him she wasn't ready for all that yet!! I contacted a trainer but she lives to far away she said she would still help me through email and phone calls but I don't think that will work. I am so frustrated right now :(

So if you really put your foot down and say get off Misty, they ignore you? Do you own Misty or do they? Get ugly with them, tell them in no uncertain terms, to stay the #&$ off your horse.

I wish I had the guts to do that. I will get to work with her by myself all this upcoming week. I am to the point I don't know what else to do. I don't want to have to send misty away to get trained but I can't do it the way I want here not with him doing whatever he wants with her. Yes she is MY horse, but she is on his property and he thinks he knows all about training

Misty has no voice -- YOU have to be her voice. You cannot "wish" you had the guts, you have to find them and NOW. It is upsetting to see how little respect your brother-in-law and, especially, own husband apparently have for you to have gone and done this KNOWING how you feel about what you want for your horse. Decide NOW what you want for your horse and MAKE it happen, if you can't do that, find Misty a home where someone can -- I am sure that sounds harsh, but if you aren't able to stand up for her, you are not able to be the leader and custodian she deserves to have.
You need to speak with both your BIL and your husband, explain what YOU want for YOUR horse, how YOU want YOUR horse to be cared for, etc and set it out there that either YOUR decisions are honored or they are to have no contact with her, period. Yes, that may mean having to look for a different situation to keep her in- again, I know it's easier said than done, but it comes down to making what needs to happen, happen.

Good, that's the mindset you need to have. Maybe if they see you are upset about them mucking with your horse, they will back off.

She might have acted up the next day because he hurt her trust in people by blindfolding her and took away her confidence. I would never blindfold a horse to get on it, especially one who isn't broke to ride at all. Sounds like you need to let him know what you do and do not want done with your horse before she is ruined!

Wow, getting on a blindfolded horse sounds pretty dangerous. I wouldn't dare try that. And that is coming from someone with a snotty almost-2 yr old gelding and I HAVE laid across his back.

It sounds like your B.I.L. Has some real old-school horse-breaking ideas. I don't think I would want him anywhere near one of my horses.

I agree you might just have to put your foot down and say "leave my horse alone!"
