Ugh. I've been in that movie with regards to a horse I was selling, where the buyer says at the last minute that they are entitled to the horse's tack when no such provisions ever existed in the initial sales ad or discussions. Um, no you're not.

Another person here who has followed your posts (and learned a lot I applied to my own horse/riding). I think it's great you've found a good match.

You mentioned you were saving up for other life goals and not in the market to buy a new horse right away (which I totally understand)- but I wonder if you might also find a horse that is looking for a free lease so that you would still have a project?

OOOPS- just read your most recent posts, hope it works out for you. But, if not her, sounds like you're patient for the right person to come along.

Yup, I'm not sure what is happening at this point. It's really frustrating. I also found out she has made arrangements with my BO to bring her mini and board it there too. Talk about awkward if I have to tell her we are passing. But right now I feel like I can't rely on her, if she can't even sign a lease and is paying late right off the bat, what's to say she won't have issues during the whole lease. And what's more, she is planning on buying Cinny in Spring, but I am worried now that he is going to end up at auction at some point because she didn't pay her board :(

If she does move her mini to the barn, and I do decide not to lease/sell Cinny to him, I'm worried that it will cause drama in my no drama barn...gah

This sucks, sorry. I wouldn't sell to her,though. And don't worry about drama, she can kiss your rump.

It's too bad that what seemed like such a good fit isn't working, but if I were you I would go with my gut on this one and not lease or sell to her. Flakey people are incredibly hard to deal with and someone who avoids telling you what's actually going on and not calling is a red flag for worse to come.

I ended up in a bad co-own situation with someone like that. I had so many problems with her, including her not paying her half of the cost for the mare for a year, making me look like I was shady to the old owners too. I still wish I had put my foot down sooner with her and that I had somehow managed to come out of the situation with both my horse and her filly. I keep contact with her only to make sure that the filly is actually getting semi-decent care. I'm sure I will get her back someday and have loads of problems that I will have to train out of her.

Don't trust this lady, if you're having problems now, they will just get worse. Just be straight with her when you tell her you are not going to lease Cinny to her. If she wants to try to cause drama, that's her problem and you don't need to be involved. Be open with your BO about what's going on. If you've been there for a while with no issues, the BO would be dumb to think it's you who caused this rather than her.

Good advice from TessaMay. Spring is a long way off. If she's this unreliable now... She sounds like the woman who I alluded to above. She was never going to lease my horse beforehand -- the plan was that she'd buy him outright -- but even so, she became weird and flakey prior to closing the deal on the horse and we decided to not sell him to her on the grounds that (a) we didn't want our wonderful horse to go to someone who was proving themselves to be crazy and unreliable and (b) she was the sort of person who could cause drama and trouble for you long after she bought the horse. Until paperwork is signed and money handed over, you always have that choice. Just be clear to your BO about what's happening and hopefully barn drama, if she moves her mini to your barn, will be kept to a minimum.

What a whacko... I'd be happy if she didn't buy my horse. Ask for tack? Not showing up? Not calling? Not ok! She sounds like the kind of person who would "forget" to feed the horses. I get odd vibes about this woman.

Thanks for the support guys. My hubby says to give her until the 10th but so far, nothing. My barn owner knows what is going on and seems surprised by it. Tomorrow is the 7th, the day she said she would be able to pay. We will see what happens, but I have lost faith to be honest.
