The original trainer has a photograph of horse on his website as horse in training. My daughter has asked him to take it off as yet he hasnt, and told him by text hat he should refund me money for the training as when horse was home she could not be ridden. He had previously told me that she was the most difficult horse that he had ever trained. In text to daughter that horse was uncontrollable when he had her!!
He scoffed at the 'threat of court' and professional witness statement by second trainer 'good luck with that'
This horse went to first trainer in good faith and no details about her kept from him. In all the time she was home did she give any indication of being uncontrollable. Even after days in stable she could be led quietly to field. Hecknew she was competition bred.
Trainer was never available ar weekends for my daughter to go to his yard to handle or ride horse. He promised me quote "a well broken horse that was safe for you to ride". Which i did not get! When he wanted her home so that he could get another horse in for trainig he he only gave me two weeks to make arrangements for transport. I asked for extra two weeks beca5uue i was busy on farm. Arrangements were hasrily made so that my daughter could go there to ride. Trainer asked daughter what she did with her pony at home.she replied that she rode in fields , schooling walk ,trot, canter, gallop and jump. His reply "oh"
My daughter has told him that she has sceen shot his reply to her yesterday and that she will tell people about him on social media. He has told her not to contact him again and has not replied to her intention of outing him to her contacts on social media.
I would like to know where do i stand
Is there any hope of any refund?
I would like an acknowledge from him that he failed with this horse and also failed the horse. That the horse was not uncontrollable.
He did not prepare the horse as requested.i.e. english saddle, bit, mounting block, to go into horse trailer.
Will trading standards be able to do something about him? Even if only to'frighten him'
I apologise for the delay in replying
