Really?? If another horse affects my ability to do something so simple as get my horse out of a pasture or put my horse back in by threatening me or being pushy it becomes my business, in a real hurry. If a horse endangers me in ANY way it will not be tolerated. I ask forgiveness, not permission. I treasure my life and limb too much to let some pushy, undisciplined, disrespectful horse affect that. If it happens to be yours-Most likely I will say something to you the first time. If you do not do something to change that-the next time, the horse will likely have a CTJ moment.

I have one of these horses. He will take advantage if given an inch. He has gotten to the point where I can almost trust him ONLY because I have made it clear to everyone at the barn that his foolishness is not to be tolerated. I am fortunate to have a small barn with few ADULTS involved whom I know well. They also know I will take no carp off their horses.

Remember-each time we interact with a horse training takes place. Good AND bad.

No way, if someone elses horse is being completely rude and making it dangerous for me to get my own horse I say something. I also always tell people if they EVER have trouble with my horse to let me know so I can fix it. I think thats just good barn etiquette. Right now I'm having a lot of trouble with a donkey at my barn. Owner knows of the issue, and I have permission to work with her....but nothing works....shes like too far gone...owner is looking into rehoming her with someone more knowledgeable, hopefully she does. You don't pay money every month to feel threatened by other horses at the barn.

I had a similar problem where I board. Owner never worked with horse and horse put me and my horses in danger almost constantly. You did the right thing. I have a system in place for other peoples horses: 1. talk to BO/BM, report problem and look for improvments. 2. Calmly talk to owner and let them know of your concerns. 3. don't take any crap from their horse and do what you have to do to protect yourself.

It's ridiculous for any owner to do as she is doing and allow a horse to be dangerous. Good luck and I'm rooting for you :)

Thank you for the support everyone.

I totally agree that I would want someone to tell me if my horse was causing problems. I'd nip that in the bud ASAP.

What is scary about this horse'a owner is that she told me once that she wanted to get another horse from 'a kill pen or something' so she could learn more. YIKES. I think about getting ahold of her to talk about her ideas of owning a horse all the time but I always decide to mind my own

It's interesting that I am being called a Nosey Nellie when I came on here for advice about this first before I possibly caused any drama or discontent at my barn incase I was overreacting...
