There is always that one boarder...

...that no one can stand. Usually they think they are better than everyone else. Usually they have to have the best of the best. Usually they think their riding is perfect. And almost always they are down-right-in-your-face-you-suck-at-riding-know-nothing-about-horses frikken know-it-alls.

And they wonder why people don't like them. IF they even notice that everyone hates being around them.

I know I've got one at my barn. Do you? Tell me about it! This is the "Lets complain about our horrible...barn mates? Co-boarders? Board members (haha that makes them sound all buisness like).

Wouldn't it be great if you could choose your fellow barn boarders like you can choose your friends? Or have qualifications like you do when searching for a roommate?

"Boarding people must actually like horses. All Boarders must be willing to learn new horse skills and pay board fees on time. Boarders must take care of their horses and not neglect them. Boarders must be friendly, not tack-thieves of 'borrowers', willing to give and take advice, clean up after horse, take down jumps/poles/barrels. Boarders must not act like snobby rich folk no matter how much money they have. Boarders must never look down on other boarders' horse(s) and realize that showing isn't everything and not getting a first place ribbon will not affect your self-esteem. Boarders will be friendly, passionate, and always willing to lend a helping hand.
"Anyone who violates even just one of these will be shot, and their horse(s) given to those horse-poor people of the world who will better love the horse than they did by not abiding by these rules!"

Sigh, if only...
