Well its only wasted if you make it wasted.
Who's to say the person before you didn't arrive late? Thus pushing everything back?
Yes, horse had club foot, yes horse may have been 2yrs more then first thought.
Both those things don't make me warrant just leaving.
I drove 2hrs I wouldn't just turn around n go home, I'd at least try the horse out.
Also I would NEVER let anyone I do not know work w any of my horses I was selling w out being supervised by myslef or someone I trusted... if something happened, I wouldn't have a leg to stand on legally if they turned around to try and sue me.
Yes, this would also be the case w a bombproof horse. Or who's t say the person in question is abusive toward your horse while your not watching...too many what ifs for tht situtation.
They had 40min to look at the horse, before riding..how he reacted to their presence, how he interacted w herd mates, could have checked him over for conformation, picked up his feet etc..all these things are mportant to see when looking at horses too imo.
Just think the OP is overreacting imo.
Would I have been a bit annoyed, maybe, but again wouldn't have just left without taking the time to try the horse out, yes the 2hr drive was wasted...but in the end it was them tht wasted the time.
