    Non issue in this situation. Actually bringing it up to counter this situation is rather childish. If you have a problem with a boarders horse - it needs to be communicated at the time. Not just when you feel you need something to put them in their place.

    Trade her a set of polos. Done deal.

    I wouldn't replace them. Our barn contract says the barn owner/manager will not be held responsible/liable (forget which one) for damaged tack or equipment. Or something along those lines.

    If the dog had gone in her tack trunk and gotten the polos than yes, I'd say reimburse. But not if it was left lying unattended on the floor.

    I agree mls.

    Yep, I would never leave my horse in the cross ties to go and chat on my phone, and I wouldn't leave my hard earned horse tack/supplies laying around to allow the farm dogs to get into - but being as petty as this is, and childish as this is, I would just trade her a set of polo's and just move on.

    If the said boarder knew there was a dog running around the place, no, you should not reimburse them. It's their problem to take care of their equipment, especially if they knew the dog eats things.

    Ugh...torn on this one.

    As a rider, I take care of my stuff. Given the same situation, I wouldn't expect a BO to replace polos that their dog had torn a hole in, especially if I knew the dog was there.

    As a dog owner (which I am....proudly), I would probably replace the polos. As a dog owner,I'm responsible for my animals. It's the same for my children. If one of them breaks something, I take responsibility for replacing it. Kids may be kids....but when they break things, they are MY kids. =-) As for the stall door, it's a bit different because she is paying to board with you. It would come down to what your contract states...and while we all think childish things, probably best not to follow through on those thoughts! =-) Then again, if it were my horse and they had done a ton of damage to something at a stable we were boarding at, I would offer to pay. Technically part of the boarding costs are supposed to be for repairs. Everyone pays them and it supposedly goes towards the upkeep of the facility....but anything that I deemed excessive caused by my horse, I would at -least- offer to pay for replacements.

    But that's just who I am. Sorry to be on the fence so much with this.

    So...I guess my main issue is with the boarder and her insistence in having you replace them. She's shouldn't be....but I can't really control that.
