    *Headdesk* Some People...

    Some of you may have read my rant about a girl who went to my barn who kind of... stalked me for a while after I bought Jerry. She wanted to lease him from me in the worst way, but obviously I said no. Anyways, one of my instructor brought her two horses to our barn and now this girl is leasing her extremely old Arabian pony. The mare is 26, so she can't jump. She can't do trails. She can't compete because she is very excitable, and she can't really ride in the fields either. All she does is walk trot canter in the ring and a couple of poles every now and again.

    Anyways, I have a feeling that this girl who is leasing her is going to break one of the rules and take her on trails or jump her...

    And she's not a wonderful rider either, so I'm afraid that she might hurt the mare's back or mouth (she has a very soft mouth).

    The mare also has two other girls who are leasing her (I guess it's like a tri-lease), and they are pretty good responsible riders, but I really worry about this one girl.

    Just thought I would rant a bit. :)

    It is understandable that you would be concerned. However, it isn't your horse and you are not the girl's guardian. If you see her doing something dangerous, you can tell the owner and nothing more. Until then, you don't have the right to say anything because you think she might break a rule.

    Is this horse healthy? I have no experience jumping, but if the horse is sound to be ridden w/t/c in the arena, then she can do trails. I know horses older than 26 who are still going strong. If she is not deemed fit for trails, she sure as heck shouldn't be made to do circles in the arena-- that is harder than a relaxed trail ride!
    Just be glad she is not stalking you anymore, lol.

    Depends on the footing of the trails, all of the trails around here are crushed gravel, and my old gelding couldn't do it even in shoes, but he was fine in soft arena footing.

    I think you have EVERY right to be concerned and say something to the owner!
    If you believe that she is 'breaking the rules' and it is having a detrimental effect on the mare, I believe you have every right to flag the owner!!!

    If you are really concerned privately mention to the barn owner your concern and try and have a few examples - blantantly accusing someone of something is never a good move.

    Beyond that there is nothing that you can do unless the girl does something wrong, and if she does just tell the owner again. Maybe the owner isn't aware of the situation, maybe she is. Perhaps she can find a different horse for the girl.
