It would be an uphill battle to ask for money back since it would be more opinion than breach of contract. However along that train of thought they asked us to pick her up a day early and gave us $20 which is actually too much by about a $1.67 plus or minus.

So very very disappointed

Sorry it didn't work out. From the additional posts you made, it sure sounds like this is the right decision for you.

They mislead you as to their abilities,.,
I would keep looking, and ask around for other reliable, trainers in your area.
Hopefully Zig benefited from something they did while she was there
Altho, it may not have been exactly what you intended, additional exposure
can't hurt her, and hopefully helped her.

Keep us posted and keep looking, someone who can successfully handle Ziggy
will come along and make up for the weaknesses of these 'trainers'.

Wink

Sounds like I oughta ship my horses to Ohio.

Ya know there isn't a breech of contract for which I can claim damages. It is definitely a breech of trust. The final nail in the coffin was when the gal who had Ziggy's girlfriend on a lead so I could get Zig out of there and then let the mare go before we were out of the pen with the gate wide open. I mean what the heck kind of wrong thinking is that? Thank goodness Gerald was there to keep her in. Sheesh!

Wow, I'm so sorry that things went so poorly with this trainer. I had such high hopes for you and Ziggy! Sounds like these trainers are completely incompetent! Since you said Ziggy has been ridden before, I would have expected them to do lots of groundwork and LOTS of riding with her while she was there, and I definitely would have expected to see improvement at the end of the 30 days! I hope you are able to find a better, more honest, and more skilled trainer that can give you and Ziggy the results you are seeking.

Well its done and lesson learned. There is another trainer who is a referral from a very savvy horse-person friend, so we'll try her. I didn't remember that I had gotten her name and number and had actually called her but she didn't have any openings. Completely forgot about her until now when we were referred again.

Not like I haven't had a bit on my mind, for heavens sake. I mean I bought salad and sliced roast beef for a "picnic" for my mom in the nursing home and forgot the bread. So do you know how we made it into a sandwich? Put the roast beef between two chocolate cookies! Kinda ick, kinda good

Yikes! Time for a new trainer.

Go by word of mouth (to start), ask for references, ask to see a current horse in training being worked, and get a contract of the service you will be provided for what price.

I think we'll try Penny this time if this gal sounds like she's worth her salt. I realy would like to ride a horse again before I get too old to know which end is up.

Ditto!
Here's hoping everything goes well, and horse comes back with a
good 30 days of desired training
