    Move. NOW.

    This is exactly the type of person that will do something to injure or poison your horse so she can call AC on you.

    And while BO might be acting in front of you like she is on your side? She isn't.

    Matter of fact, I would not be surprised if this fruitloop is not some idiot sent to this barn to cause trouble since so many die hard AR fans think horses should not be owned.

    AND I would call that chiro and read them a riot act too for working on YOUR horses.

    The fact of the matter is this crazy boarder is a valuable asset to the barn. If the BO has talked to her and nothing has changed (it seems like it's honestly getting worse) then it's likely the BO isn't going to do much else because of the revenue this lady brings.

    To save your horse's minds, and your sanity, you would likely have to find a different place to board.

    If your parents are paying the bills, you need to go through them. Have a talk with them and see if they will let you find somewhere else to take them. If not, I would alert every farrier, chiro, vet, chief cook and bottle washer in town that no one is to touch your animals without your permission.

    I can say for a fact that the BO is on our side. Honestly she's told me if she didn't need the money for repairs right now the lady would be out on the road. I'm okay with her being there and obnoxious (I'll have no problem telling her where to stick it at this point) so long as she stays away from my horses. I've told this to the BO and she's in agreement. So far no problems have raised of that nature. The vets and farrier in this area know us so they'll know when we call for and make sure we're there.

    Palomine I really don't think it would be her to poison any horse out there since all of them eat outta the same area, and she's psychically intuned with them and their health conditions. :P Plus she thinks it's below her to feed the horses, and doesn't believe in treats. If I had any worry of that I'd have been outta there in a heartbeat!

    Edit: If I would move the closest place is about 4 hours away. We had boarded there before we moved here but while there our horses got sick and their feet got swollen up from a mud rash. The people had a 1 acre field that our two were suppose to have, but next time we went out they had crammed three others in there who were all mean Percheron who beat up on ours. Plus they refused to increase our feed and when our horses got skinny we moved out to our trainers new place. Moving really isn't a feasible option right now, and honestly with what my boss has told me I'll be more than happy to send the lady packing then pack up myself. ;)

    You have allowed it to get this far, by not dealing with all of the smaller things you listed at first.

Many times when I was fixing fencing in an empty field she would turn horses out and then proceed to stand over me as I did my job, like I'm a devious person out to maim horses. When I would bring up my gelding (who's spooky and isn't really a fan of new people at first) she would do 'pressure points' to 'ease' his worrying without my consent and ignore my 'no's..... and freaked him out so bad I couldn't get him into the barn easily for a few weeks. Whenever I ride she would come over, and instruct me on what I was doing wrong (for instance my mare doesn't cue with any leg, she hates it) and verbally berate me for being cruel and immature with my riding.

    You are allowing her to walk all over you, and that's one thing, but when she brought up your gelding and put her hands on him, you needed to stop that right then and there. If you choose to allow her to treat you badly, that's one thing, but she shouldn't be putting her hands on your horse, and it's your responsibility to protect your horse.

    As you allowed all of this, then she's the type to think she can work your horse.

He was dripping in sweat and my mom gave her a talking to and brought him up.
    and what did you do? Why didn't you see it was your horse being worked as you drove in?

    If she had put her hands on my horse or worked him, she would have been finding her teeth in the toilet bowl the next day, after she passed them.

    The roundpen is out back, it's barely visible from the road or the front part of the barn. You have to go inside and out the back way to fully see it (other than what you can see through trees) if I had seen her sooner I would have been at her quicker. I think I made my moms conversation with her sound a little too nice.... it was far from it, personally I wasn't there so I don't know what was said. I do know that I'm too nice about some things. I don't want to give the vision that I would let her do anything to my horses without a word of protest though. Had I caught her doing anything right now I'd be on her in a heartbeat. I don't jump to physical confrontation right off the bat but it's gotten to that point now where I will. Lesson learned, sometimes being nice is stupid. I'm hopeful though that there will be no more issues! But I've decided that I've had enough of her crap and I'm not going to be that doormat again.

    I am very confused, you are not making sense, and contradicting yourself.

    If it's out back, how did you see it driving in?

She then had the gall to give us a chiropractic bill from her chiropractor that was over $300 for a checkup which lone behold: nothing was wrong.

    We found out afterwords from the doc that she had worked my horse using her NH methods for well over an hour.
    how does this happen? The BO has told her to stop, your Mom apparently told her to stop, and she's still doing it, and then boarding there?

    I smell a whole side of another story, or something else. This stuff doesn't just happen like that.

    I would not recommend moving. This girl works there. The BO is responsible for this solution and should have the NH woman move out. No person should touch any horse at the barn without permission. That should be a deal breaker.

    The BO needs to protect her workers and the horses in her charge from this behavior.

    If she refuses to then yes. Time to move on. But the OP should press the BO to resolve this once and for all.

    Sorry Alex S I should have clarified more my fault! If you stand by the road and look towards the barn there's a line of trees that is in front of the roundpen that goes almost to the barn (but leaves a small gap for a path). During this time of year where I'm at you can see glimpses of a horse if it's being worked in the roundpen from the road because the trees aren't so thick they just kinda shield the general area). The incident of working our skittish horse and the incident involving my mare happened about two months apart. My bad! Sorry, I think I went too fast in the original explanation!

    As to the other side of the story/something else there's always two sides and I might be overreacting to some of her comments and misrepresenting my side/situation because of emotional interference on my part.

    PS. I love your profile picture! :)

    I can't even imagine what I would do if someone touched my horse without permission. Good lord, there would be hell to pay, though! Grr, grinds my gears just thinking about it!!!

    I really hope for everyones' sakes that your BO wises up. While I understand that she needs the board money for barn repairs, a lawsuit involving this woman could cost her the whole dang barn and then some. :/
