i used to ride at victorian stables before the first closing. then one day i went for my lesson and no one was there. there were two horses in the barn. i went to the restraint to see what was going on. the owner told me what had happened and i asked if she needed any help. she said yes and gave me one of the horses. when she told my mom that she wanted to give me the black tb(if you know who im talking about great)and my mom asked if she was lying, she said no. i worked with that horse all year and when i left to go work at a summer camp that summer she said that the horses were going to a training barn in Martha vineyard. i called the only two barns down there and one said they didnt know what i was talking about and the other said that she never showed. this got me upset. i didnt know if my horse was hurt, stolen, or taken away. i soon found out it reopened with the name stables at winchester court and i went there and talked to the owner and she said i could come and ride him again and that she would call me. that never happened. later i found out that a girl was leasing him. it hurt me that the barn owner didnt call me and tell me. now i know not to trust people if they give me something like a horse for free. i worked really hard on Rudy. i bought him joint supplaments, galloping boots. i spent the whole winter training him, over fences and the flat and look what she does and takes him away from me. i havent been there since then. but if what you say is true that they look like they've been abused it makes me very said. i miss rudy so much, it was hard for me to understand why she used me. i still do not know why, she seemed nice enough but oh well.
Pros: i got a horse
Cons: i lost it and now he could be dead
