I started by leasing my horse at the barn he has lived at for many years, from the owner of the barn. Then I bought my horse, and have been there about a year. Boarding. We bought land, built a small barn, and are selling our house, to build a small home there. The economy being bad, it may take awhile. I'm thinking the owner now regrets selling their horse, as they did have him a long time. I get nasty comments at times, like why aren't you riding that horse, or I get the silent treatment. They know he is well cared for. I don't ride about 4 or more times a week, like I believe they expected, but I am there, brushing him, etc. I ride 1-2 times a week. He is in his upper teens, and remembers his training. I also have a teenage girl who rides him now and then, they know. It is hard going there at times, knowing I will have to deal with some drama. I heard there are some people who don't see their horses much, because they are treated the same. I do not want to be rude, and I try to just ignore. I also had said at one time I was being hollered at, if they wanted me to move sooner. Then it got alittle better, but it depends on their mood that day. I feel and a few others feel like we are being treated like kids, having to hear that stuff. People have told me to leave, then to have to put up with that, but I think I need to hang in there, till we really move. Any opinions?
