Got out to the barn to check on Libby, I’d decided I was just going to give her a spa day since she was sore yesterday. Got there and waked into the tack room, and was so upset to find that not only had my saddle pads (including my half pad) been used, but so had my bridle, and my saddle. My saddle had my cover carelessly thrown over it, with my stirrups at totally different lengths. I was seething, and called my trainer right away, but she didn’t answer. As I sat down, still super angry, there was a girl talking to some clients and showing her the horses for sale in the barn, and wouldn’t you know, she was trying to sell them Libby, giving them a sales pitch like you wouldn’t believe. At that point, my trainer was calling me back and I told her everything, how my stuff was used and everything, to which she called the BO about afterwards. But I told her then that I’m leaving after the show. I let her know that I would probably still try to trailer to her for a couple lessons a month, and to other people in the industry like Carl Bessette and whoever else I know thats up here. She was surprisingly ok with everything, which I was happy about. She’s known I haven’t been happy there for a while so it didn’t come as a surprise to her.
Even though things went well with telling my trainer everything, I was still really upset about my stuff being used. So I gave Libby and Vetrolin bath, and tried to start her mane, which I didn’t get to do for very long since the groom decided to start feeding.
Still haven’t heard from my trainer about how she did today, the 22nd, but hopefully she felt better then she did on Sunday.
