    Ok first of all whoever said it was dumb that she was expecting things to be free for use at a barn needs to wake up. Personally I have not boarded at a lot of places but if your paying $400 or more a month for board everything better be free except for maybe feed. I mean like really its common curiosity I think to let everyone use all your facilities if you are paying them an obscene amount of money every month to board your horse there..... Come on people..... Im from the midwest so even 400 dollar horse board here is ridiculous... I can't even imagine 750... Not happening.

    Im not sure about the whole contract rules ect. But if someone is doing wrong to MY horse I would show up with a trailer and pack everything up including the horse without telling them a thing until I got there. I don't care what the contract says. Someone abusing my horse I think would out rule everything. If they want to challenge it let them. Sounds like they don't have a very good reputation anyway... Glad everything worked out for you!!! Sorry for ranting! Haha

    Just one full time employee at a messly 7.50 an hour costs 300.00 a WEEK. That's just one employee.Electric for a large indoor with people using lights on a regular basis is around 250.00 or 300.00 per month.I assume this barn has more than one employee but even if they had just one that costs them 1200.00 per month. Just saying.....

    I agree with you myself, about her boarding fee's being outrageous (though I assume she have stall board, which explains a bit) as well as if anyone ever hurt my horse. If I a found out that someone had ridden my horse without my permission and that someone had been abusing my horse, **** would hit the fan and I'd be on their asses so fast trying to put them out of business lol. But that's just me.

    I'm glad that you got out of there! It's just such a shame that you had to pay so much money just to get you're horse away from people who abused him, that's just horrible. Good luck at your new place!

    Sorry for the double post! I also have a small problem with their stable: their horse care is a little to laid back for me. In our weather(below -35 alot in the winter), I'd like to see all the horses that are ridden with blankets. I'd like to see better arena fencing(outside is only about 2 feet high), and more restricted diets for the horses. My horse is not high maintenance but a high maintenance horse would not fit in here. They don't really even accept high maintenance horses here(like athletic warmbloods in training). Right now that is not a problem for me but I might get a second horse in the future. I guess it doesn't matter for right now. Also, all their horses are barefoot, which I'm fine with, my horse is also barefoot. I've been out to my horse's pasture to catch him and some of the horses in there need shoes. Yet again I must say, my trainer has better horse care than his wife...his wife is the barn manager. She takes care of everything. They have some old horses and some really young horses that would benefit from supplements but they don't get any. If the training works out I'll still stay because they still are taking care of the horses.

    How do you expect people to make money? Just because you board there they should do everything for free? Where do you think all that "high end" stuff comes from? I can't stand it when boarders think we should do everything for them for free....Barn owners time is worth nothing?? Im sure they will be glad to see you go...
    I hope you realize that she isn't "complaining" about the cost of what's being done at the stable. She's "complaining" about how her horse is being used without her permission and has been mistreated by the people of the stable. I would be complaining too if I was finally told that my horse was being neglected and used without being told about it. You're on a forum, so you need to READ the thread before posting something stupid.

    Please don't take offense to this, but it kind of sounds like you are being too picky on the barn. Lots of people don't shoe the horses in winter. Lots of people don't supplement horses, growing or old. And lots of people don't blanket ridden horses. I am in S. Alberta, and I fit into every single one of those categories.

    Give it a chance, I'm guessing from what you were paying at the last place that every horse had everything short of a mint left on their stall bedding, so of course this place will be different.

    I read the problem training thread you started. I think just sit down with your trainer and him alone. Tell him what "Lancer" has had done, how you handle him and what you want done. Is he actually going to be training "Lancer"? Or giving you lessons? Make sure you are as open minded as possible to his ideas when you two are talking and discuss how to incorporate them into ways "Lancer" is okay with. Not saying you are closed minded, but when I was 15, I knew everything and my mare only did things my way and I never even realized it until she dumped me and ran home leaving me and I got a "told you so" lol.

    If you are a good rider, maybe just ride yourself, getting pointers from him on a specific thing or finding other trainers to consult with. It might be better in the long run to just pick your own methods than moving from different trainer to different trainer, especially if he is already developing fighting tendencies to any new technique.

    I don't know where you are, but you can pm me where you are located if you want. I know some people who have been working in the horse industry all over the province who may be able to recommend someone if you are having such a hard time finding any trainer who can work with your horse. It may help out if you wanted second opinions or this current guy doesn't work out.

    Are you allowed off-site trainers to come in and give you lessons?

    Thank you Diesel Pony. I understand where you are coming from. I am getting used to this stable still. I have to give it a chance at least .

    I'm tired of having every person at every new barn tell me to scrap all my horse knowledge and experience because it is wrong and that theirs is right and I have to do it their way. Just because I'm 15 doesn't mean their way is better than mine. Ya, they have more experience than me but that doesn't make their method better. I want to learn from people, I want more knowledge and experience but I don't want to be forced, I don't want my methods crapped on and I don't want to be taken advantage of because of my age. If my mom knew more about horses it would help, but people just take advantage of her because she believes everything.

    I can trailer my horse around alberta, or just talk to trainers. If you could give me a list of names and/or websites of trainers in Calgary, Edmonton and everywhere in between that would be awesome! I don't live in either of those places but I go around to shows and I could possibly have some sessions with some of those trainers. All my horsey people connections are in BC or the USA so I don't have many references for Alberta. Thank you so much for your help! Also, highly doubt that off-site trainers are aloud as it is a very private stable.
