    You also have to pick one. Either you're working for her or you're not. If you don't want to the you have to stop doing chores and stop helping. You don't necessarily have to make an announcement about it - just don't do it.

    This sounds like an unpleasant situation.

    I would just explain to her, again, that you are no longer in a position to continue your arrangement. That you would rather focus on your studies, and simply pay for her services. If she is a professional, she would understand.

    If things escalate... I would leave. Horseback riding is too pricy to deal with this kind of childishness.

    BTW, as long as you take her calls, she is in control and you are enabling her to be in control.

    ^I agree, you need to make it clear that it is not appropriate to call you while you are working, or in school. That would be step one.

    Or, simply tell her that you keep your phone on silent (or off) and won't answer. Period. That you will get back to her when you can.

    I agree with everyone else. Be honest with her & ask her to not call you unless there is an emergency with your horse.

    For this reason I would not ignore her calls. While more likely than not it'll be her calling for a "favor", there is the potential that your horse is having problems. If my barn manager calls me I KNOW that my horse needs to be attended to. At a minimum tell her that you are NOT to be bothered while at work unless there is an emergency regarding YOUR horse. Make sure she knows that if the at work calls happen again then you will be needing to move your horse to a less stressful environment. If she calls you at work anyway, then she is obviously not going to take the hint and I would follow through with your threat. I would even go so far as to say not to call you at ALL unless there is a horse emergency, but not calling while you are working should be a given.

    Good point! But that's the blessing of voicemail :)

    OP, you are an exemplary college student and hard worker. Cut this whole, "I am a slave to this woman" thing off now, before your grades and peace of mind falter. Always remember, "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent" - Eleanor Roosevelt
