There truly are bad horses out there - no matter what some people want to insist.

Kind of like every other breathing thing - there are good and bad. Heck, there are people who molest children and kill others because they think that is fun. Why do some people think that just because it is a horse that it too can not have a screw loose some where.

:roll:


I agree with everyone else (and what the OP has been trying to tell her friend all along) - this horse needs to be put down. Not sold to someone who does not realize what a freak it is so they can get hurt.

You might want to point out to your friend that there is a trail of people that would not make for a good outcome for this owner if they sell and the buyer gets hurt doing something the seller knew the horse did that the seller downplayed. Since the horse has been sent to so many trainers I am sure a good lawyer would have a field day.

She almost sold her yesterday, I was standing there and when the person asked if she had ever bucked, my friend did say yes and that she would not recommend her for kids. She also said she would pull back when tied, didn't mention the part about her throwing herself over backwards when being ridden. Thank goodness the person did not buy her.
Oh yea, she is now going to another trainer....................

field day? I was thinking more along the lines of shrine circus... ;)

You could always go with her to potential sales and warn the customers if she's absolutely convinced to sell the horse. I mean... you might ruin a friendship, but you could be saving a life. What would her selling price be? Would it be worth it to buy her at a super cheap price yourself and do the deed?

No, because she lives down the road from me, if the horse disappeared she would know it.
Maybe this new trainer will fix her right up. Yea,sure

Lol. Just like the last ten? Maybe these last ones were just calling the horse stupid...

It seems like we posted at the same time last time. Lol I was really confused when two posts came up and one wasn't even from me!

Well, you have tried all you can... The best you can do now is just to sit back and watch your friend wreak her havoc with her dangerous animal...unless you want to go on a covert euthanasia mission, there is nothing you can do.
