    This is a show barn the owner is really bitchy and scary and is never at the barn. Why are you so surprised that the barns tacks up but if im hacking I do it myself. No we don't have to call we have lesson's that already have a time when I get there my horse is already tacked up.

    No I was just trying to figure out when your horse was supposed to be tacked up. If it was supposed to be every time you rode then it would be difficult for every horse to be tacked up for the rider, but for a lesson that makes more sense. I'm not surprised that a barn tacks up for you, it's just not something I'm used to and really don't see the point of. If I have a lesson I arrive early and tack my horse up in time for the lesson, takes me 10 minutes to do. If I absolutely could not make it in time to tack up my horse, then I might look for someone to do it for me. I guess I'm just really ignorant when it comes to show barns. LOL Also, be careful what you say about the BO online. It's unlikely, but if she ever found out about it...

    I give lessons at my barn, and part of our lessons are learning how to do all parts of the horse care, from grooming to tacking and untacking. Are you allowed to ride in the arena when you're not lessoning.
    I'm sure some of the teenagers at our barn (where I work, not own) also think I'm a bitch because I have pretty high expectations for behavior. That seems to be par for the course. Like Jumanji321 said, complain cautiously about the barn owner on the internet...

    SJ1289- I know the barn where you board now and know the barn where you are going. The two do not even compare. Great choice to go to where you are going!

    The barn where SJ1289 boards now was nice- a long, long time ago. I showed ponies there in the 70s and I think it needed upgrading then. If there is any turnout left, I doubt it is much more than a dirt paddock. The barn is surrounded by a highway. It sounds like her current trainer and barn manager are absentee but she pays for complete full board. Choosing to have full board does not mean SJ1289 does not know how to care for horse.

    The barn she is moving to is owned by a US Olympic rider, has about 100 acres so her horse will have a lot of turnout, has rings and jump fields, at least two indoors and several professional instructors. If she is paying for full board, she might as well benefit from a world class operation.

    I'm not sure what the issue is. It sounds like the place you're boarding at is a country club or similar, and probably very pricey. If you're not happy with the environment or services then move somewhere else.

    The photos I have are just jumping pictures that do not identify where they were taken.
