Some people are just stupid, and there is no cure for stupid. As bad as I hate to say it, I agree with Solon. It is going to take some catastrophic accident for her to wake up. I don't want to sound harsh but if one of them has to get hurt, I hope it is not the horse. Some people just see a horse as a vehicle to reach their own goals and cannot see it as the living thing it is. There are certain things that I will not do, not because they could kill me, but because my horse might get hurt. That is one thing I cannot stand is a horse in pain. I hate selfish people. }:(

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

If she isn't going to listen to the great Buck Davidson - she is a bloomin' idiot!!! I have no pitty for her what-so-ever. The horse, I have sorrow for - but her - pssht, let her get hurt.

People like her give this sport a bad name, and for that, I have no respect for her what-so-ever.

I feel horrible for her horse. If your coach wont say anything to her - then I question his abillity to prevent accidents from occuring.

All I can say is wow. It is riders like her (I won't even say horsepeople because she quite evidently isn't about the horse) that bring down the name of eventing. Heck, bring down the name of any competition.

If she won't listen to Buck Davidson, there's no helping her. Unfortunately it's going to take something catastrophic to get her to slow down. As evil as it sounds - I hope and pray it's not the horse that has to pay for her stupidity.

You guys are right. And that's what I was afraid of. I really like the horse- she's sweet. It's just really unfortunate that she has to pay for her owner's stupidity. I have to add that this girl is filthy stinkin' rich. She bought the mare as an unproven three year old for 60k. I was in florida with her and groomed for her all week (even though I was there to groom for my trainer) and I did alot for her. Not a thank you all week. Including the horse trial over the weekend. Grr!

eventerdrew have you thought about talking to her parents or writing them an anonymous letter? Bet your trainer doesn't want to make them mad cause they have the $$ with that much money she should have been able to buy an experienced made horse that could do it all

I thought about it, but then they will show it to her and it will turn into a big mess.

When she bought the horse, I asked her why she bought a three year old for that much instead of an experienced and proven horse and she said "because I want to go to Rolex"... well honey, reality check! That horse isn't going to go above Intermediate. And she will never make the time, so therefor, she won't even get qualified for Rolex.

She just stated on another forum that she was going to enter in our local Training 3 Day.... death wish anyone?

Can you contact the head person of the events and give them a heads up about the girl and her horse and how its an accident waiting to happen?

They might be very willing to help out since they are there for safety and what not.

Even if they showed her letter how would she know it was from you? (don't hand write it) others have seen her at trials, etc so other people could have noticed the issue, sorry just trying to help

lovemyponies- it's possible, I still don't know if I could do it. It's an extremely complicated situation and I feel as if anything I do would not help. The people who see the danger the most seem to be everyone BUT the people that she listens to.

I'm still trying to think out scenarios where it wouldn't turn into a big "You're just jealous!"-fest. But I don't know how. Writing a letter is a good idea though, thanks!

Appylover- I don't think I can do that. There is something called a Dangerous Riding penalty that can be given if someone sees it on course, but it's not so much her riding that's the problem, it's just the level she's going at. Some horses may look scared when they aren't on XC so for someone who doesn't know the horse, it's hard to gauge whether the horse is just excited or scared. Wish I could do it, but I can't!
