Ditto this.

And don't feel bad. I still tend to screw up my wording in this.

Yes, you have some BO's that are dishonest, some boarders who are dishonest, some people who ride without permission, none of this is good. And then occasionally you get the nutball owner who asks you to ride her horse, and then tells everyone else that she didn't and that you screwed her horse up. I had a boarder that was going to be out of town for a couple weeks, and she sought me out at the barn to ask me to ride her TB while she was away, and told me exactly what she wanted done with him. I noticed that he was having some problems with his vision on one side and so I informed his owner that she needed to have the vet check his eyesight, and she went nuts on me, telling everyone that I had snuck and ridden him while she was gone and had made him jumpy, spooky, blah blah blah. I thankfully had a witness that overheard her ask me to ride. Finally she got the vet out and he told her her horse was almost blind on that side. She actually argued with him, and told him that it couldn't be that, that I had screwed him up. Needless to say, she was given notice by the BO at that point.

And this is all why I waited to get a horse when I can keep it on my property. No crazy people messing with my horse, no little school girl drama. It is a pleasant time.

Very true! I keep mine at home to.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

I definitely understand the bad BO thing. I was just evicted from a barn due to a bad BO. I admit I forgot to sweep once or twice in the 2+ years at was at this barn, but doesn't everybody once in a blue moon? I was super rushed both times and my mom, my dad and even the BO were telling me to hurry up and leave cause I had places to be. Anyways yes I was evicted because my BO made some MAJOR mistakes ad I called her out on them. She told a breeder that if they wanted me riding their horse they would have to leave the barn. She yelled at me whenever the barn was dirty, even if I had just gotten there. Learn To Ride never swept up after themselves and because I used to work there I was often "at fault" or at least that's what I was told. She was also the instructor and would treat me like complete garbage in lessons if she was unhappy with me for any reason, big or small. My old BO also broke our boarding contract so I do understand and sympathize with boarder's who have bad experiances.

After reading this entire topic a over. Everything seem so shakey, from blame this to blame that, to is there any truth to it. As for my opinion I am neutral, My uncle runs a boarding stable, and there are laws that boarding stables must follow due to liability issues and insurance. In reference to that it relates back to contracts and agreements with the owner and you. Now if there is any "truth" to this topic or what not (I am not saying there isnt, just covering both sides). I would first gather evidence before pointing fingers at anyone. 2 I would then approach the owner and ask what is going on in a polite manner. (you can dig yourself deeper into a hole then one you want by being flat out rude) approach this professionally. If the owner says that is not going on, I would then take the evidence you have gathered get a good lawyer and contact the local sheriff in a orderly professional manner. Most things can be solved simply and orderly without a lot of drama and it makes it easier for everyone. Do not rush into anything or do anything rash. It can only hurt each party in the end on both ends.

Patience is always rewarding in the end

And it is a problem for someone to bring it back up and give their insight on this situation?

The OP may well be gone and not coming back to this thread, but that does not mean that there is not good information that others can use, or that they can elaborate on or give their own personal insight.

Um. Maybe Wyoming was just pointing out a fact that was assumed the newest poster did not realize.

Nothing wrong with pointing out that something is an older thread in case a newer poster did not notice.
