Being the only "student" under my instructor... I don't get any drama. I like it that way, because I hate drama.
I've heard of lots of drama at other barns, most of which is caused by the younger female boarders. And there are a lot of "princesses" in my area. When I was with my old instructor, there were girls that thought they were the queen of sheeba, and everybody must bow down to them and give them whatever they want. It was fun instructing those kids,
