    Don't know about the escaping thing, that's a worry, but regarding water quote often the cater if a tethered horse will provide a bucket of water twice a day. Allowing the horse to drink its fill. In the wild horses often drink once a day as the water is far away.

    Easier to just sell horse :(

    If you know the people well enough perhaps if you Twll them how they are making you feel I'm sure they'd be sorry. Sometimes people just dont think. I wouldn't make any decisions whilst you feel everthing is bad. Your horse is for you to enjoy. And so is your baby. Congrats.

    The 2012 racing season has now killed 50 horses!!

    do you not have public liability?

    Bhs gold covers you in any horse so long as money doesn't change hands. It covers what they describe as a 'friend coming to ride your horse at the weekend' but again if money changes hands its iffy.
