Abby, sounds like you are in quite a pickle! The only comfort I can give you is that your horse will see you as a safe place and will bond even more with you if you are using parelli. Gosh I wish I could find my magic wand and make everything allright for ya! (((hugs)))

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

whip happy

DAM THE WHIPS . If i was to be boarding at any barn and they put a whip to my horses there would be hell to pay . you pay them for a service , which is boarding and care of the horse not a training barn which any fool with a whip in there hands going at a horse is a goat hearder not any kind of a trainer, I ran a training and boarding stabble for years in PA and there never was a cause to whip any horse in fact out side of the people lingeing there horses no one had best have a whip in there hand unless they ment to use it on a tree . there is no reason to put a whip to a horse in anyway any man or woman that calls them self a trainer and has to use a whip need to go find a job in a garbage dump as that is all they are good for. Sorry if i offend anyone that thinks a whip is a training tool but if i do so be it because there is no whip ever been made that will train a horse to anything but run or fight god help a person i see useing a whip on any horse there or others . believe me i will show the person what a whip is for sorry you all have to be in the posiation to use a scum barn like them . please do your self and your horse a favor find a good barn because you sure dont have one there humane people need called in on them that use the whips

If I caught anyone touching any of my horses with a whip for anything and they would have more problems to deal with.

My horses are mine to discipline as I see fit. If any of my horses are causing problems then I should be informed and I will fix the problem myself.

I would move out.

Abby I think you should hold a meeting with other boarders to talk about this. Though you're "just a kid" that doesn't make you mindless and you know what is best for your horse. Keep in mind that you pay the board and that man essentially works for you; holding a barn association sort of meeting may help the man realize the extreme nature of his actions, particularly when majority of his boarders show how unhappy they are. Good luck!

I agree with ayeshaqureshi00. You should talk to the other boarders there. After all, if you all threaten to leave, he'll have to listen to you.
