I don't permit it and make that clear in the beginning. I rode at a show barn as a teen and the owner was strict regarding that. We did what we could to support other riders. If an individual couldn't show for some reason he/she pitched in to help those who could show. It was barn pride.

The drama we have here is either really really bad or really really...Not a big deal.

Recently we had a whiny little girl whining about not getting to ride a horse that she rode twice when the normal rider was away. The BO said "Look, if you're gonna b**** about this horse, go pay more money somewhere else with better horses."

Then we had this whole thing with an expensive as heaven itself warmblood...And the spoiled brat that got to ride him. Long story short, she couldn't ride the horse worth crap and took out her anger at the horse. Slapped the poor thing silly when it made angry faces from the girth. She had to spur him every stride to get him going. The only reason she rode this horse is because the OTHER horse (that's right, two horses) she full leased was still sort of injured. And no one was allowed to ride either of the two horses. She got all spoiled and what not...Pitched a fit when things didn't go her way. Lo and behold, when she gets kicked off the horse so another girl can ride him, a huge fit happened. Lo and behold, the complaining stops as soon as her old horse was good enough to be jumped high again she couldn't care less about the WB...
The brat gets mad when she doesn't get to jump high (aka 3ft) the whole lesson. Every day. She's really not that good of a rider, she just has a good position and a godly horse. She doesn't have the muscle or patience to ride anything that doesn't give her handouts.

Bah. Rant done. Yeah...Drama is awful.

My barn has a lot of drama. There are about 10 people who like to drink there (why i have no idea) and they get really crazy and mean and do stupid stuff. They cause it ALL. It's usually about me, because I'm 16 and have a boyfriend and work about 6 horses out there and get paid pretty good money. They, drink and drink, and drink...... anywho, yes we have lots 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!
SR I so agree!

Hate drama, but would hate this behavior even more! I would be outta there in a flash. Just wouldn't like them around me or my horse...and yes, I do drink...just a bit more appropriately. I would seriously wonder about that BO, but JMHO.

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

Reminds me of a barn not far from where I have my horse - always alcohol and/or drug fuelled drama.

People stealing money/tack, sleeping with other people's spouses, being arrested for cocaine offenses, stints in jail.....

I have no idea how any of them have any time for the horses. I would NEVER board there but I must admit that the stories coming out of that place are always interesting.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

franknbeans (your name is cute) but anyways, yes I hate it. If it was a bad barn or if it was dangerous I would leave, but othwise I can't this on is half a mile from my house. The next barn closest to my house is 30 mintues away. I live on Fort Hood in TX.....

Sarahver that barn your talking about seems really crazy, I would definitly not keep my horse there.... These people drink, but we have never had anything like that. However I still hate the drama at my barn.

That reminds me of one of the younger (19) instructors at my barn. She rides and gives lessons on Saturdays every week, and almost every week she gets insanely drunk on Friday. Then when she has to do lessons she gripes about how bad she feels, and then often doesn't ride her horse cause she has a bad hangover.

Try not getting drunk every Friday. Maybe that'll help.

I LOVE the idea for that show. I'd watch that, even though I hate reality TV.
