    I can't say my BO was fire-breathing dragon or something. But out of greediness she took in really big aggressive gelding with shoes on all 4, and let him go with my mares. I asked her either move him to another field or move my mares. She refused. After my paint got beat up so she was limping for weeks and my other mare developed rain rots because they couldn't get into the shelter, I just run nuts and moved them.

    You forget YOUR decision to move to that barn in the first place.

    Barn manager - barn owner - their barn, their rules. You know the rules when you agree to board, you follow them. If they don't fit with your ideal barn - do not move there.
    Barn rules are simple. It is when the BM portrays herself as one person and then when you are in, a totally different person.

    A Barn Manager has no right to tell you what color of tack you should use. Or embarass you infront of a hallway of people. Tell you what you can and cannot use on your own horse

    A BM has no right to tell you how to disicipline your own horse or go awall when you don't do what she says you should do with your own horse.

    I used to excersice a girls horse for her & do parelli with it, well one night I was just walking back up to the yards to put her horse away, this was like 9 a'clock at night all was good. The next day I got a call from the girl saying the lady who owned the agisment place, called her very angry as I had accidently left 4 troting poles in the arena set up. I am never aloud to go back to that riding place :( talk about over reacting!

    Keep in mind that the other end of the spectrum can get just as frustrated with boarders. Also keep in mind that in these sue happy times, BM/BO have to come down harder on what could be construed as dangerous as the liability can fall back on their shoulders. We may all say that we would never sue someone but it is insurance companies that often sue- not people. If it is the case that something changes after you have started boarding then you should verbally discuss your issues with the management as they are not mind readers. If there is a serious clash between you and the managment you are probably making them just as miserable. There are two sides to every story and when you happen to be on one side it can be difficult to see the other.

    She made anyone & everyone who went onto the land sign a sheet saying no matter what you'd not sue. Lol

    Completely agree. In first barn people did practically ANYTHING they wanted: like let horses loose in front of the barn, or let them run from field to the barn for food OUTSIDE the fence with other horses and people around, or ride on nice neighbor's grass, and so on. That was just ridiculous.

    I doubt that in the rules of that barn it said, I can take your halter if I want to and say it is mine. She had no right to do that and I think she is abusing her power as a BO.

    Again though, like Onetoomany said, often times it is the insurance companies who sue, not people.

    Ha - exactly.

    "Article 4, paragraph 5, line 2: As the barn owner or manager, I have the right to take your belongings and claim them as my own."

    I never said they did. I HIGHLY doubt the BO was trying to 'abuse her power" and out right steal.

    I think the person posting the problem was not willing to understand the BO very likely THOUGHT it was the one she purchased that looked very similiar. Since we were not there we do not know the content of the conversation.
