The trainer is looking for results in order to keep her students. When I rode jumpers and one hunter, they all rode in a snaffle and weren't difficult to control. We rarely jumped in an arena setting but did it all on the trails to keep the horses fit. When it came time to go to a show, these horses went with a fresh mind and jumped their hearts out.

An update, though I wish it were a better one.

I have completely lost contact with Reo's owner.
Their barn gained a very negative reputation (gee, I wonder why?), so they moved farther south and changed their name. I know the name of the new stable, yet they've done a fabulous job at completely covering up their barn. I'm not sure how they would ever get new customers. No phone number, no address, no nothing anywhere. Hmm.

I don't get on social media either, which makes things more difficult still. No idea what to do from here to be honest...

Maybe get on social media just temporarily?

If you have it just give her an offer to buy him.

I guess he moved with the barn :/?

Didn't you say you know the actual owner of the horse? She is the one you need to be friendly with.
Don't give up hope, just keep your options open.

I do know the owner, but we've lost contact :/
She moved, and I switched phones.
I think the temporary move to social media might be the only way I could reach her, if that. Their page hasn't been active since the move. Did they just decide to jump off the face of the Earth?

He did move with the barn :/

Buying him would be a bit of a struggle. I'm knocking on college doors, and can only take one to college with me, and that's going to be Cowboy. Plus, I heavily doubt that Barb would sell him. He's been hers for ... seven years now? And he's always served her well, and she's the type of person to keep horses until they pass away.
I'm really even pushing my luck asking for an off-site lease; but I'm going to try. If I can ever find these people.
