    Have things changed since you interviewed and moved in?

    If things have changed - then yes you need to talk to the owner. However, if this is the set up in place prior to moving your horse in, it is not the BO's issue.

    Very frustrating as a BO to have boarders want things changed after they move in.

    Well either way the tree roots should be removed. Those are dangerous. It doesnt matter when that happened.

    Well, I appreciate your comments and to answer some questions. I've been at this barn for years and I like many aspects. It's not that I'm horribly unhappy. Actually, I was one of the first boarders. I think after reading what people wrote that I realize there are a few issues I hope we can address as a barn community. One is that for $800, the riding facilities need to be updated to keep up with increased volume of business. The barn itself has been upgraded. I think an honest discussion with the barn owner is in order. She is young and works hard and does a super job but there has to be equal access for all boarders to the riding arena. I agree that once a jumping session is in order that jumpers need some preference. I always try to keep out of the way. As I said, I'd be happy to even ride in another ring if it was a good ring to ride in. I think I just need to be more assertive as a boarder and state my needs. Thanks for being a place to vent and to receive a variety of suggestions. It's a wonderful forum. Em

    With how many thousands of dollars you have spent at this farm I wouldn't be one bit afraid to speak my mind if I was you. I wouldn't be unpleasant about it but I would state to the BO that I pay alot of money to be here and this is what is wrong, now what can we do to fix this?

    I was just curious if you spoke to the BO yet? Are they going to do something to make this all easier on you?
