Yeah lol. My barn owner is in charge of buying/selling horses for the barn. Obviously, if there is a gap in the program and an instructor sees something that fits we can make suggestions, but our owners are usually pretty on top of things and will purchase as they see fit.
However, when they do this they usually tell ALL the instructors lol. I went to work this morning and since we run a summer camp during the day, each instructor gets a group (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced) and a pool of horses that they can use throughout the day. I see a name on there I don't recognize. Apparently we have a new horse lol, no one told me. He lives in right wing which I hardly ever go in because I'm not responsible for any of the horses down there and most of the horses I use for schooling are in left. He's cute though :]
Obviously I talked to my boss first about the horse, said he's totally beginner safe etc. I'd rather have SEEN him undersaddle before I put my kids on them (I had beginners) but I trust her. I just though it was a funny story lol
