Question Should I swirch barns?

I have been going to this barn for 7 years and it has been fantastic up till this year. The trainer has started being very rude even though i was volunteering to help her and the barns owner talks to my family anyway she wants to and is often rude. But sometimes they are super nice and helpful ( mostly when my parents are with me) I have a horse boarded there who was a stud for a long time and can only get turned out with certain horses but most days he is in his stall all day which breaks my heart. He is tearing down his stall and its not like i can be in control of there scheule ( thats why i board) . I am also concerned about what would happen to the horse there that only i ride. She is to wild for inexpeirenced riders and expeirenced have there own horse to ride. I am worried they would sell her and i wouldnt be able to live with myself if she went somewhere bad. Also i have so many friends i would miss incredibly a lot! I cannot decide wether to toighen up and deal with it or to loose my friends and the mare. I cannot imagine life without this barn but there is so many other barns out there. I am scared i will loose friendships becuase thats the only thing keeping me at this barn. I also feel selfish though having my extremely corious horse stuck in a stall. I have no idea what to dp.

I didn't read it all but this is why I would switch. I would never stay at a barn where someone is rude to me and where my horse would be stalled 24/7 when they aren't supposed to be. Any particular reason you know of as to why they are rude to you??

omg I am having this same problem at my barn! But my trainer isn't rude just the owner.... I also don't know what to do......
The thing that is keeping me at my barn is also my friends and my trainer! Also this has been my horses home for 4 years and she absolutly loves it there and I don't want to take that away from her. One of my horses though has only been there for 6 monthes and wouldn't care where she went lol.
My horses aren't stalled 24/7 but the owner treats them badly when I am not there or when she "thinks" I am not looking.... She also blames me for anything that goes wrong at that place..
and she only acts nice when my parents are around.
thanks for posting this I am going to listen to what other people have to say :p

REALLY?!?! Another place that requires a horse to stay stalled 24/7...where are these places at! I have never heard of any around me like that, never knew there were places like that even out there until this forum.

That would be enough to make me not want to be there. Being mistreated would only be icing on the cake.

I guess why i am still at the barn is becuase its almost like a second home to me i know it so well. She is rude becuase she gets to stressed with lessons and camps she does, but i dont see it as an excuse. She is not trying hard to please her old customers just new ones even thouh many are leaving. Also my horse is turned out just not enough. I wish he could to my house for most of the time and take lessons, that woukd solve everything but thats just not an option.

Well like what she does is if she has garbage she will sometimes throw it in my horses' pen!
And I have seen her hit my horse once! but I talked to her about it.
I would move buts its the only barn around. I have been looking for a new one for almost a year now. just there aren't any! I was going to this other one but my horses would have to be stall 24/7

If this is really the truth then all I can say is I would hate to be you.
