Yeah, the pee in the stalls is gross because WHAT IF MY HORSE LAID DOWN. That's not ok. Also, there are a couple other barns, the one that gives lessons with barrels is just too far to drive to every day, especially in the winter! The other barn is great, but their lesson program is full (and they have super expensive lessons!) and it's a farther drive than the mounted shooting place.

You can always pay a little more once a month or so for a lesson from someone you click, or perhaps even from that instructor, and practice on your own.

And I HATE it when people pee in the stalls!

But it does mean that sometimes you have to hold it a really long time. Once I held it so long, that I absolutely had to go while alone on a trail ride. I rode into the woods, wrapped the reins around my arm, dropped my jeans, and spooked my horse when I started to pee. He took off, I took off hopping after him which spooked him even more... Well, it wasn't a pretty picture, but I still have never peed in a stall.
I love dressage too! But I learned everything I know about it at a barrel racing barn. I'm one of those that believe in using dressage principles in ALL facets of riding. She treats me like because I have not sold my soul to the dressage gods, that I don't know anything.

No comment about which barn to choose...just about peeing in the stalls.

You're worried about your horse laying down in a kids' pee? They lay down in their OWN pee all the time. ;) LOL. A little bit of kids pee (which ain't nearly as much as a horse pees!) ain't gonna hurt them at all.

I pee in the stalls at my barn all the time, because there isn't a bathroom in the barn, just in the BO's house. And while I'm allowed to used the bathroom, it's a small trek to get there. lol.

Uhm, horses lay in a lot worse than kid pee. Hell, they EAT a lot worse than kid pee.

Dude, peeing in stalls is no big deal! Peeing in the trailer is also not a big deal. A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do! We don't have the luxury of peeing in front of a tree when people are around.

As for which barn. Definitely the one without lessons.
