How sad...And horses don't get 'fleas'... He might have had scratches really bad, or some other fungal infection...either way, shaving a panicked horse certainly was no way to treat that infection!

He should have been soaking those legs in Betadine, and trying to get some kind of medication on them!

hmm I think that's one thing about having or riding horses. It can be one of the bitchiest sports around. :( it is sad but there's not a lot you can do about it. I just get on with it, after all you can't change a person set in their ways.

I only take lessons at a riding school at a barn. But I've met quite a few people that board there horses there and holy cow some of the girls are just spoiled BRATS. Honestly they think they are better than everybody else. Don't get me wrong some of the people are really nice. But some of them are just downright rude!

Does anyone else find that there seems to be more people like that with english riding then western? My friend used to ride on the competitive show jumping circuit in my area and eventually ended up switching to western riding. She said she just couldn't stand all the stuck up girls anymore and was afraid she was turning into one too. Obviously not all english riders are like that, but does there seem to be more stuck up english riders then western. Or maybe it's just a stereotype.

I found it to be rather equal when I was showing, which was why I eventually got out of it...I just couldn't handle all the 'politics' and snootiness that came with it, and that was within 4-H!!! I had a horse that I had trained myself, and none of the judges looked at him, even though he was more relaxed and moved more freely and better than the 'professionally' trained ones...

We have one lady who is really rude. She's technically an employee-- she pays off board, so I have no one to really vent to at the barn, lest I seem like the one who complains about everyone.

I got a little startled because I was knocked off of a horse at an auction the day before, I had a HUGE hematoma that lasted for 3 months, and, of course, I had a slight fear of losing control. Well, my doctor(who is a rider) told me to lay off trail rides and stick to ring riding.. so I could get off and go back easily if I got sore. So when invited on a trail ride, I declined and told why, and this lady went off on me.. called me a baby for going to the doctor, etc.

A grown lady should not be calling a 16(I was at the time) year old girl names.. especially when it was her first big fall and she'd only been riding for a year. She's just intimidating.. I tend to make myself scarce when she is around.

All the ridders at my barn are all really great and nice. But I have met a TON of people at the shows I go to who are terribly mean. I show a gaited horse who is a little spooky but never dangerous. And since she's at the bottom of the peking order at the barn she's all ways very causious. And at one show we were warming up and them this girl tries to pass on the outside (miind you my horses is blind in this eye, and you not supose to pass on the outside to begin with) and the other horses tail hit my horse but she spooked cus she couldnt see what hit her, and the other girl totally told me off! And I was just like you the one who tried to pass on the outside so it was you fault and just walked away to calm my horse.
Ugh some girls can be sooo mean!

And on the eigth day God said horses shall NOT trot, and the GOOD horses listened!!!!

I have very little to complain about being that I have the horses at my own barn,but my aunt just recently got a horse,she a reg. Paso fino mare she has good bloodlines,color,etc. but she spoils the horse,the horse has terrible direspct issues,she rears when lounging,she bites me,and the horse is very greenbroke and my aunt has no idea about horses other than your suppose to ride them,the only thing she ever does is lounge the horse because she's scared to get on it,when she does though its only for a minute then she hands it over to me,so now im getting payed to work with this horse,lounging,grooming,and riding so that she could ride it when she ever gets over being scared of it,i told her to ride my horse because she really broke but she wants to ride her horse because she thinks its prettier than mine!no matter what its always well I bought my horse so I need to ride it,its just I don't have time or I need to do blah blah blah,when im working with the horse trying to get her to ride,it really sucks having new horse owners who are older so they atomatically know more than you about horses.

oh and by the way I started to whip the horse because it just tried to rear and go at me while I was lounging and she yells at me for hitting her horse!the horse was really close to me and if id been about 3 feet closer I wouldnt have a face!she said that I have no business hitting her horse and she says to just stop working with her horse,2 weeks later and im working it again for her,i could just let it in the pasture and say im done but I don't like to see horses as fat pasture horses,oh and by the way she insists on keeping the horse in a seperate pasture than mine because she's scared of her horse getting hurt by mine,which my horses are all gentle and wouldnt hurt her horse,and she also thinks that her horse can't handle being around other horses so all the times its just out there on a 3 acre pasture by itself.

Whew, I am so glad I am the only boarder where my horses are kept after reading some of ya'lls stories. (The other horses at the stable are the owner's.)

But when I did board my horses, there was always a ton of drama. Do not miss the drama that's for sure.
