I don't know if its me or what but every barn I go to there is always drama and bitchy people there.
I've had Sienna with the same BM for 3 years, one at a bigger barn and the other was a small one she started herself.
At the bigger one, there were always people who weren't the least interested in talking about their horses but rather, 'did you know so and so did this or that.' it was a new drama every day. Now I'm moving her to a HUGE barn and I'm already dreading it. I'm a friendly, gregarious person but I haven't the least interest in 'whisper, whisper, whisper stuff.
Oh and one girl who brought her horses said her saddles were out being cleaned. The BM let her borrow one of hers and we had to show her how to put it on. 5 out of 6 trips she never brought one of her horses in to groom, or ride, or do ground work with, anything. She would stand around gossiping and then she was the first to tell you what you SHOULD do with YOUR horse. And it's surprising how it only takes one before the whole barn is in an uproar about something. Everyday. I go to see my horse to relax not listen to that BS. My horse is usually very high energy and paws. Well that was the least of her bad habits when I rescued her so I let it go when I first got her. So she would go while I was in the tack room and tell her to stop. Or yell from 10 feet away, 'Sienna quit it.' Or tell me 'Your blanket isn't even. You didn't tighten her girth all the way without doing her arena stuff did you?' This from a girl I had to help saddle her horse. If someone misplaced something she'd say with THAT
look, I know who took it. No I don't want to start
anything so I'm not saying anything else.
I was so glad to get to that smaller barn and so nervous about going to a bigger one.
