Have you talked to them about turnout for your horse? Maybe this could be solved by you telling them that your horse needs more turnout time because he is tearing up his stall. If they are unable to accommodate just tell them you are going to move him somewhere he will be able to get more turnout time.

If people are being rude to you they may not be nice to your horse either. They are nice to your parents as they know where the money comes from. If it was me, I would be already interviewing other boarding places.

Another bad sign is you said a lot of people are leaving your current place. If people are leaving the problem isn't going away. If your worried about leaving the mare, ask your parents and the mares owners about purchasing her.

Lastly, whats more important, your friends or your horse? This one should be simple. Just remember, you already own one horse that needs cared for and should be your primary responsibility. You can only do what you are able. Good luck and I hope it works out for both horses and you.

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 ( that's 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 that's 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.
Leave.. like yesterday.

There is no reason to put up with rudeness nor with them not providing adequate turn out.

It's care that you are concerned about the mare, but she is not your horse, and, unless you purchase her, then you can't guarantee what happens to her whether you stay or go. Your priority should be your horse, who is obviously not happy there.

To the other poster having similar issues.. post where you are, maybe someone knows of a place!! Good lord. I'd have had my bags packed yesterday. That is just horrible!!

The rudeness factor is probably a good reason to leave. Please remember that the other horses and the turn-out schedule is beyond your control, regardless of how you may feel about the situations. Best of luck!

There is absolutely no correlation between being rude to people and not being nice to horses. Boarders sometimes become drama queens, expect the horse to have care far beyond what they are willing to pay, don't pay the board bill on time, all sorts of issues that play havoc with the BO's nerves. If your horse is damaging the stall, are you looking after it's repair? Maybe she's nice to your parents because they are adults and refreshing to talk to.

There it is.

Joachim has laid it down to the bare essentials.

I would have been gone like yesterday. I work hard and pay good money for services and will not tolerate rude or inconsiderate treatment from the people who get my money.

But, if the stall is being damaged because they won't turn the horse out appropriately, then why should she pay for it? I certainly would not cover my horse damaging the something, if they aren't upholding what prevents that (turn out).

Your horse is now gelded? How often do you go turn our your horse out or round pen him or ride? DO you expect the barn workers to do this? Do you pay extra for this? Have you discussed this with your parents? Are they willing to pay more for the added time for someone to turn out or round pen your horse?
Is there a larger pen or area to keep the horse other than a stall?

My advice is to switch barns. ASAP.The care of your horse should be top priority.
The friends that count will still be there. You'll meet new people.

I would move if I were you, but that is just me. Do whatever your heart (and brain!) tells you to.
