Well, long story short as possible.....I paid everything but $140 upfront and it is now 7 days until my 45 day training period is up. My mare is even worse and will not even come up to anybody. Half the time I come by in the middle of the day and my mare has no water and her bucket is bone dry. My bf and I had to put this mare into the round pen ourselves and I have never seen this "trainer" work with my horse. I can barely get ahold of her and when I do she is always busy somewhere else. I did sign a contract stating that I would exchange X amount of money for the gentling/ general riding horse training that would be done to my mare. I provided all feed for my mare and also a salt block (which I have yet to see my horse have), new halter, and hay bag.
So..I am hauling my mare home asap......I would appreciate any thoughts I can get on the situation. Thanks.
