DuckDodgers, I had to address it because you know how barns go, When I got over there today, mr and ms BO, and my friend were all standing together, and they already knew . There's plenty of women there that actually have go run and tattle to the BO about everything.

I approached the 2 riders who went out, and told them that I got all sensitive and worked up yesterday because they didn't ask. They said they didn't know I wanted to go and I should have said something. I agreed with them. So it was discussed very nicely and chatting later on.

I appreciate you all here for being straight about what you think. It certainly helped me see things objectively.

Way to go. That's exactly what I felt happened and I think you handled it well by being honest but not in an accusing fashion. I think you must feel better and that you will all have a better relationship. (Don't know why everyone else knows though? I don't like that, don't need drama)

I have definitely been there. Glad to hear of the positive outcome.

Thanks, Yogiwick. Yes, I think better understanding was learned for the both of us. Better than having a wall put up.

This was my thought as well. If I see someone else tacking up their horse I assume they already have a plan for riding and that they'd speak up if curious about what I was doing and wanted to join in.

Glad you got it straightened out, though! I'm a pretty quiet person myself and find it hard to break in to established groups of friends so I know how daunting it can feel sometimes!
