I would just ignore her. That's the best thing to do in these situations. I'd be ****ed off too if I were you, but she sounds super insecure.

Woow. This thread is getting a lot of attention. :\ I really just needed to rant.
and this affects me for a couple reasons.
1) She is trying to scare people away from both her horses, telling them that they are crazy, unsafe, ect, when they are both versatile, calm, and well behaved. I put a lot of work on her current horse & that is pretty insulting to me... Plus I might be the one getting him once she is done with him and would you want to get on a mustang that hasn't been ridden past a walk for six months?
2) She is a good friend of mine, as far as barn friends go. I spend almost all my time at the barn with her, and it does affect me that my "friend" is lying to me all the time. I can never trust her & it's just annoying!

I wouldn't mind in the slightest if a horse hadn't been past a walk in six months. That's better than dealing with a horse that's been galloped wildly around like a nut for six months.

But.... IF she is your friend and keeps lying to you I can understand your frustration with the situation. In that case, I would sit her down for a real heart to heart. I'm not sure how old you are, but go on a walk or go out for ice cream or the movies. Get her into a non-threatening atmosphere and away from the barn and ask her what's up.

"Sandy, I've noticed you not riding Jewel lately and you seem to have some fear of going faster. Is there anything I can do to help?"

Or "I'm wondering why you keep buying stuff for other people's horses and I know your dad gets mad at you for doing that. What's going on with that?"

Basically be a friend or don't. If you can't stand the lying and don't care enough to get to the bottom of it.... then stop associating with her beyond the necessary interactions of barn life. If she is one of your best friends then find out why she's doing what she's doing. If she doesn't have a good reason, then time to re-evaluate your friendship and possibly cut her off.
