    After some time has passed and everyone has calmed down, perhaps you could suggest to the BO to put tie racks outside the barn . And with a 4 x4 post , a couple of hooks, you can set the post 4 ' tall, use the extra piece with an eye at one end and make a saddle holder near the tie racks. It keeps the Barn aisle clear , allows everyone access at all times.
    Ask the BO to post feeding times. Lessons etc can be scheduled around feeding times.
    Having the Barn Aisle clear is also a safety precaution, what would happen if there was a fire or an injured horse that required immediate attention, or one that was cast ?

    Well heck you'd never get on where I've worked and boarded......but then again I'm not an entitled jerk am I?

    Ground tie - stand there, don't move, have manners......lead rope on but untied or not on at all.

    Even if you have to take a 2nd part time Job; I would go ahead and pay full board. Just to avoid things like this. It is not worth the money saved to go thru this; even if you only have pasture, stall; and you come out and feed twice daily, it is better than what you are going thru.; life is too short.; enjoy time with your horse. The more people I meet, the more I love my HORSE!(s), ; PS. I own/run a boarding stables in Texas; have 16 of my own. Again, Life is way too short to put up with people BS> <3

    Also being a "serious B", I make my horse behave without being tied, just because I can. I wait for noone. I ride when I can, and if I had to wait for folks to puts around and get done la di Da'ing while they groom I would be too frustrated to ride. Plus-this way, I know my horse is listening before I ever swing a leg over.

    Don't get me wrong-he ties too......will stand there for hours if I ask, but I love that he will just stand there...while I go back and forth to the tack room, get what I need, put on my boots, helmet...whatever...and even after I start riding-if I get off to move a ground pole, etc......

    To each there own, but for you to imply that because you cross tie you are more "serious"? Hmmm. Perhaps I misunderstood. Hope so.

    Oh-and for the record-I did not use the word "jerk". You did. I did not do any name calling, just in case the mods are watching.....
    I was just joking, don't worry. I did not take offense at your post, I was poking fun at myself and how our stable works. By serious brats I meant like huge brats, not that we are very serious.

    Wow, I've never seen that. Very impressive. I'm quite sure my horse would just stand there but I would never take the chance just in case I'm wrong.

    Which is why you train them. They are not supposed to move even a step, because one leads to 2, leads to "I am out of here......".

    I also like to groom outside when it is nice-that way I don't have to sweep up when I am done.

    A loose horse is my greatest fear! I think *I'm* the real problem in that equation. A close relative's horse recently got loose and was killed (he jumped a fence) and after watching that devastation I am just paranoid.

    And the quip about Anky and rollkur - it has not actually been proven that rollkur is detrimental to the horse and the biomechanics studies I've seen actually prove the opposite. As well the original proponent of rollkur is French classical dressage master - Baucher.
    But great job for reiterating hearsay - lucky Anky doesn't have lawyers out looking for those defaming her....
    And just to add, I find it's usually the low level people in any sport who are very diva. At any high end barn, that behavior is not accepted or tolerated.

    Anyways. About your situation - it's not your place. If you no longer feel comfortable doing chores then tell the BO that. If you then can't afford board, find a new place to go. Otherwise, oh well. If you really want, you can let the BO know when people are rude to you or whatever, but really you have no authority to be making decisions or changes about someone else's barn. Same way the trainer may come off as wanting to control, you may come off that way to her.

    Good luck!

    It's obvious that rollkur is abusive.

    By that logic, so are curb bits and western saddles and sacking out and tying around and sliding stops and spins and rowel spurs. Shall I continue?

    If you would like to have an opinion about something, ride to that level first. I know a cathedral bit isn't abusive, but it sure looks awful to an outsider.
