I'm Sorry... WHAT?!?!
So, as you may know, about two months ago we bought my horse. Well, about a month into my ownership with him, a girl I met two years ago in a horse camp called my up and asked me if she could lease him. Now, I've seen this girl ride before, and she flops all over the place, and yanks on the reins, and kicks the horse in the ribs. So, obviously, I said no. Well, Then she told me that I "wasn't taking good enough care of him, I mean, you're only out at the barn, like, twice a week, right?" Uh, wrong. I'm out there at least every other day.
So, you might be asking why I'm posting this if it happened so long ago. Well, here's where it gets interesting. I told my instructor about what happened, and she said "Oh, don't worry. That girl stalks every new horse owner for a few weeks after they get their horse." What? So, I asked around, and sure enough, a few of the other boarders had this problem too. Well, it doesn't end there. Every time I see this girl, she asks me if she can lease my horse, or take a "practice ride" on him, or ride him in a show, or groom him, or take hm for a walk, or hose him off. NO! NO YOU CAN NOT!
Anyways, I told her to stay away from my horse, and if I ever see her touching him, or in his stall when I haven't given her permission, I will tell the barn manager and have her do something about it.
Sorry about the vent. Do you think I handled the situation well?
