Seriously, you stick 20 to 40 females together (throw in the odd horse owning male) ranging in ages anywhere from preteen to dotage and you don't
expect there to be some sort of drama?
C'mon folks, that many crazy horse owning females in one small area just breeds
crying, screaming, tantrums, personality clashes, cliques, and other assorted mayhem!
I don't 'do' drama. My last boarding barn was a small, privately owned Arabian breeding farm, and the owner only had 2 boarders; me and another woman. The other boarder was all about drama, but since neither the BO nor I was into it, her hissy fits always fell on deaf ears.
I keep my horses at home now, and I love it. I have no problem finding folks to ride with, and if someone starts something, I load up my horse and go home. Ah, peace!
