There was one lady I was emailing about a couple of free horses. They were 6-10 yo, apparently no health issues what so ever and one had been ridden at one time, she just didn't have time for them anymore (As stated in the add). She said she needed the horses to go together and the home had to be a forever home. Yes, that was fine. She told me it had to be someone experienced so I let her know about how I break in horses and start them into jumping and showing. Also let her know my mother had just moved in with me and she also used to break horses and now just rides for fun and jumps when she gets the chance. So long story short, we know our way around horses. The lady sent me an email flipping how I used the term "breaking in" instead of "starting"... Now I'm not one to break in the old hop on and break their spirits, we are used to a more "parrelli" approach. After that was said she began to flip again how the horses "had better never be used for riding", that she should be allowed to come and see them anytime she wanted, she had to inspect the place first and wanted referrals. For a couple of FREE horses.
Why would someone have in the add that one of the horses used to be ridden, say that there are no health issues what so ever then demand no one ever set butt on their backs? Doesn't quite add up.
