Man the first thing I think about is my horse. I recently started jumping him over the summer but due to his age and how he is built I refuse to raise it over 2.5ft. My friend said lets go jump some barrels with him and she wanted me to take him over 3.5ft to 4ft I was like no way and she got mad at me and I wont let her on my horse now because I let her jump on him and she(without telling me) started heading towards a down barrel and I yelled at her to stop and she ignored me. My horse's eyes were rolling. Thank god he veered to the side and refused or he could have been hurt. But she was so mad and called him a dumb@$$ for refusing she wouldn't listen to me. But you should always pay attention to and think about the horse first. What are it's limitations, is it scared, can it do that, will it do that without being scared or giving problems. They are just like people they are scared of stuff and have a mind of their own. You should really tell someone. I would talk to the trainer again first. If he is a no go tell her parents and explain everything(in non-horse people terms)tell them it is dangerous and what not. If she wont listen to you maybe she will listen to them. But basically what everyone else is saying tell someone before she or her horse gets hurt. Because if that horse is as scared as you are saying it wont be long before it does something dangerous and your friend will get hurt.
