Okay, so my friend Cierra keeps her horse at her mom's friend's house and today we were talking, she said how sometimes its like the daughter of the home owner is trying to make her mom not like her and how its weird for her going on trail rides with the owner because of the big age difference and how there is no place to ride because they don't have an arena. We were talking about how she should bring her horse to my house because then we will both have someone to ride with our age, an arena to ride in, and to get our horses okay with new things. My horse, Dozer does not like her horse for some reason so it would be good to get him to where he can ignore the horse he is riding with and focus on what I am asking, Domino would easily help him get over this (I would have my trainer helping me to keep the horses safe) I think this would make me ride a lot more because when she is over we always ride for a long time, during the day its hours and we ride at night too and that's for an hour or so of getting them use to new things. She would pay for her food and stuff like that.
My mom thinks it wouldn't hurt to try this because my dad is always saying how I don't ride enough and this would help and so on but my dad is completely against this. He says he WILL NOT be a horse boarder because he doesnt want to be liable or loose his privacy. Any ideas on what to say to change his thinking? I was thinking of having them sign something saying they had to call if they were planning on coming during the school day or with guests so we could have a heads up and that they have to make sure everything is closed and stuff but I don't know if it is fair for them to have to call before they can see their own horse?
