So last summer (around July I think) I met this girl (lets call her Sally) who was interested in horses, but had had a bad experience once and had developed a fear of them. She asked me if she could spend some time with my horses, and asked me to work with her. Now keep in mind that I hardly knew her at that point, and was letting her work with my horses, free of charge because i'm a nice person. Well not long after we met she decided she wanted to lease Liberty from me. I asked $250/month for a full lease, meaning she could do what she wanted with him and no one else would ride him.
She asked me to work with her, and I admit that I didn't make as much time as I could have to give her lessons, but every time I tried she couldn't come to the barn or she was too scared to do anything with him. So after the first month I decided to end the lease (which is my right as the horses owner) for a couple reasons, first of all I wanted to lease him out so he would get more work then I could give him, but he ended up getting less work, and I was also thinking of selling him at the time, so I didn't want to have him leased out when potential buyers came around. That makes sense right??
Well after all of that things were still fine between me and Sally. We were friends, we hung out, we talked all the time. She never acted mad or upset about everything and said she understood. So everythings ok, right? Wrong. A month ago I put him up for lease again, because I decided that I just didnt have it in my heart to sell him. The girl whose leasing him now (lets call her Cheryl) is wonderful, rides him 5 days a week and they're a great fit, I couldn't be happier with her.
Anyway there was a problem, Cheryl doesn't have a saddle right now, and it was hard juggling my saddle between the two of us. I knew that Sally had a saddle that she didn't use much so I asked her if she was interested in selling it, I told her that I needed a saddle for friends to use, and for libs leaser to use if I was there using my saddle. Sally said that I could borrow the saddle for awhile until she needed it again and it would give me and Cheryl the time to find a saddle to buy for her.
So everything was going great until Sally asked me to go to a draft horse auction with her, I told her I couldn't, that auctions just upset me too much, especially a draft horse auction! Well a couple days later I get a text from Sally saying that she needs her saddle back. Ok no problem, but then she starts flipping out that it was ballsy of me to let Libs new leaser use her saddle (which she knew about) How I'm such a horrible person, how I cheated her out of money because she never got to do anything with the horse when she leased him (7 Months Ago!!) She had full access too the horse for the month she paid for, why is it my fault that she chose not to do anything with him?? And why is she bringing this up now??
So she demands the saddle back, I say fine, ask her when she wants to meet up. She tells me that she doesn't want to meet up that she wants to go to the barn herself to get the saddle so she "Can tell everyone there what kind of person I really am" And then she proceeds to post a message on facebook using my FULL NAME and saying that I am a liar and a cheater and a thief :flaming: But Im the one whose immature??? She wouldn't stop texting me nasty things, I had to have my # changed, and she wouldn't stop messaging me on facebook until I blocked and deleted her... I don't know what I did wrong... I mean seriously...
If you read this whole thing you are wonderful and get a cookie
