I agree, horses are made to be constantly moving. That's why mine are out 24/7. Very nice, you get it.

And guess what, I stand my my right to think it is rude. A lot of damage can be done by spouting claims of abuse and neglect WHAT?! where in fact there is none (as in this case).

I didn't CLAIM abuse! Show me where I did! What part of IF don't you understand? It MIGHT be abuse, is what I said! I don't claim abuse when I don't know the particulars, as I certainly don't know here. I'm finished reiterating/explaining this; anyone, including you, can re-read & get my point.

I'd love to hear all the particulars now from OP, as to whether Dad is being negligent to hog the indoor, or whether there are viable options for the upkeep of the horse(s) physical & mental wellbeing, but OP is probably long gone, having decided we're all loony.

so common sense dictates to me & the millions of indoor users that indoors are LIFESAVERS for horses in domesticity. That goes for protection from hot weather as well as protection from cold, snow & rain, & wind. "I wouldn't ride if I didn't have an indoor" is EXACTLY MY POINT. Your horse'd suffer for it, in the ways mentioned.
I'd say that is pretty darn close. Saying horses suffer without an indoor, that indoors are 'lifesavers'...

My horses seemed pretty happy this morning when I went to check them after the big storm we had last night. I think that 'I wish I was in an indoor out of this weather' was far from their minds when they were having a ball rolling in the mud :]

Btw, I qualified "LIFESAVERS" right after I posted it, to ensure no bashing, even though the term is commonly used in a figurative sense, as well as literally.

Obviously, it's not only DIRECTLY that horses can benefit from an indoor: the fact that an indoor protects the humans from the elements, thus enabling them to give the horses the physical & mental activities that benefit the horses should be obvious. Your horses having had a great time outdoors by themselves doesn't invalidate the benefits of an indoor, for the love of God.

I don't see that you're adding anything of value at this point, wildspot; seems that you're snarking. If you want the last word, have at it; not worth continuing, for me.

Apologies, you asked me to show you - I just obliged. I simply wanted to clarify for any impressionable people who may be reading this thread that not having an indoor is NOT negligent. I think it is an important point to make.

My dad tore down all 3 of my horse stalls. I cried when I walked into the barn, the first one he took down was my horse that passed away, Mango, stall. That stall meant something to me, that was where I spent the last few moments with my horse before he passed away. There were bloodstains soaked into the wood. As weird as it is, those meant something to me.
But, it was for the best. He built me two new stalls in the hay barn, with 2 more half way built. And, he kept the wood from the stalls to rebuild mine, the top board that had Mango's name in big bold Sharpie letters is now part of my older mare Rosie's stall:)
My barn is also now his shop. A 1942 Ford Tractor that's halfway rebuilt sits where my horses once stood. I would be a tad bit more happy if he would hurry up and restore my '85 Chevy.. but God knows when that will happen ;)

The fact is, there is nothing I can do about him changing my barn situation. He bought the house, he pays the mortgage, he owns the place. My job is to take care of my horses. I have never had the chance to even consider riding inside. I'll gladly ride outside. Heck, the horses run around in the cold all day, I can easily throw on my coveralls and a few pairs of thermals and call it good!

I get the impression that it was meant in some situations it could be considered. And she encouraged the OP to state details.

I would consider myself negligent if I did not turn my horse out in the indoor arena to have some fun, play around and blow off some steam where his paddock gets much too icy (even when maintained) and he stands there with nothing to do but eat (which I'm sure a lot of the time she is perfectly content to do).

I am quite sure Northern didn't mean to insult or accuse anyone of anything. And the previous posts have explained this well.
