I do NOT feel the need to defend myself, but I would like to point out that we have great working relationships with several other land owning neighbors. We are allowed to ride in certain hay fields in the off season, and on some lovely lake side trails during the summer months. Our closest neighbor also lets us ride around his plowed fields, which are great for warming up and cooling down. In exchange we give pony rides, garden veggies, and farm fresh eggs. Just because we are nice neighbors!! We are happy to have them here any time.
Also...If you don't have enough land to support your horses, that is not my fault. It is also not my fault if you do not have the respect to ask property owners before riding on their property. There is a driveway that she could have walked up if that was her intention.
And lastly, Sheesh! Has anyone's horse ever caught a viral infection? If so, then you understand the importance of knowing what horses come into close vicinity with yours.
