So if you abused your horses and were reported and reprimanded, you would try to sully the name of the person who reported you? That is just dirty but is exactly what someone would do as a retaliatory offense. So I agree, if you are going to report make sure you have a place to move if she decides to be unprofessional...

But you might not have a place to keep your horse in the mean time. I don't know if it's abuse or not obviously but the OP should understand that there may be severe repercussions from any action she might take and be prepared. If she reports the BO and the BO is cleared then she may have a problem finding a place to board. I don't know how many barns are in her area but I would bet the BO's at keast know of each other and may have quite a bit of interaction. Better to move the horse first then report the BO.

I personally would never run a boarding facility or keep a horse in a stall but that would be a reasonable action on the part of a BO that felt wronged.

Tomorrow I will check the bedding, and look more closely to see if there are any scratches or other marks on the horses.

I am aware of how nutty BOs can get when things don't go their way — trust me, if I report her, my horse will be miles from her barn!

Thanks to everyone who posted!

Remember if you do end up reporting have EVIDENCE, either pictures or videos or both, it is all hearsay without evidence...

Of course — I was planning on taking my camera along.

Thanks!

This is a horse issue, not a popularity issue. Given the information stated I would report it with pictures and/or videos as proof, regardless of what that might do to my reputation(after moving out of that barn of course). I didn't get into the horse world to be quiet about people who distress their horses just so I can be liked.
