I was looking thru a barn design book the other night, and a few of the barns had captions describing their system for making sure that boarders horses were tacked and warmed up for them prior to their arrival. Then I remembered that a long time ago, I used to have 2 boarders at a barn I ran who expected the same thing. One had a somewhat valid excuse that as an older middle aged woman, it was physically difficult for her to lift a saddle. The other one assume that full service board included daily workouts as well as riding before she rode. (I guess I blocked that part from my memory).
One of the owners in the book that had her horse ready to go for her considered herself a top level horseperson (or so the caption said). How can you be at the top when the only thing you do is ride a horse that has already been warmed up for you?
Are some people so lazy & full of themselves that they can't be bothered to saddle up their own horse?
Maybe I'm just set in my lower middle-class ways to understand, lol
