I didn't say you WERE incompetent. I said you CAME ACROSS as such.

I DO understand that those are two very different things. This is something, as a burgeoning adult, that you will need to be aware of. Just a tip for life. :)

understandable. Especially when it comes to our horses and their care, I would venture to say that every one of us would be a bit sensitive.

that's why I am wondering why people are being in sensitive and its like they are on their high horse of knowing oh so much. Just when I get the feeling over and over that im not good, I don't know much and I m young. Iv been working with horses my whole life, yeas I don't know everything. But still wish people would at least put there feet in my shoes.
All I was doing was venting.

That's actually exactly what I got out of it. And I sympathize with her.

I am so glad to hear that you love your new trainer. A good trainer that matches your needs is hard to come by. Sounds like your off to a good start with setting realistic goals. Too many people start training not knowing what they are training to do. I am lucky enough that I don't have to board my horses.

Even though your positive your new barn will be a wonderful match make sure to read through the contract and see whats included then talk to the barn about any "extras" and get them added into the contract. I am all about making things official. This way when you have a problem (which i'm sorry to say there will be one there always is) you can refer back to the original arrangement and see if something needs to be altered or someone needs to be kindly reminded that it was in the contract.

I understand how you feel about the whole "blanket incident". If someone says they are going to do something than do it or inform me that you didn't/cant. Though, I wouldn't trust a stranger to do me a favor, I would contact the barn staff and explain that the blanket will need to come off and you are unable to be there to do it.

Boarding can be tricky and the trick is to be as proactive as you can so that problems are dealt with before they arise. Sounds like the new barn will be good for you and your horse. I'm wishing you the best!

I know your not going to like this but I am with the people who say it is a public forum and therefore they can post whatever they want. You can't post something and only ask for cuddles because your going to get the thorns too. If you want only cuddles then post somewhere private that only your friends can respond. Don't be so quick to jump up and defend yourself because it only eggs naysayers on and you know your experience and your skills and they are going to throw it back in your face. Let nasty comments get nothing in return so that they feel it wasn't worth the effort of typing it. Rants generally generate a lot of judgment from people who post a response. It's because venting is often a bad first impression and people jump to conclusions its just human nature.

Good luck and have fun with your horse!
