    Angry I'm Mad!! "RANT"

    I recently started to work at a handicapped riding barn. It's lots of fun and people are super friendly. Then one of my favourite horses dies and is replaced by another. The new horses name is Troy. Well a week after that there was a poster up saying that they were having a dressage competition. I decided to enter adn asked if I could ride Troy. They said yes but then I went there today and they said that I couldn't ride Troy because he hasn't been there long enough. I'm so mad now!! I really wanted to ride him!!! I'm going to be upset if someone else gets to ride that horse!!!!!

    Though disappointing it is probably not something to get truly mad about.

    Stables, like every thing in life are political in a way. If someone else gets to ride Troy there is probably a reason for it. It might not be a good reason in your eyes but I am guessing the people who make such decisions find it to be a good reason.

    Enjoy whomever you get to ride and use it as a learning experience.

    Do you pay a fee to ride these horses and show them?

    Sorry you are disappointed. I wonder if they are just wanting Troy to adapt to his new surroundings and the business of a show before they let someone ride him in one. Maybe you could offer to walk him around and acclimate him during the show.... then next show, you would be able to say "I kept him calm and I know what his trigger points are during such an event."

    I understand how you feel, this happens to me alot but with my own ponies. People ride them and then expect to take them to competitions. You just have to prove how much you love Troy and I am sure you will get to go to the next competition. BE OUTSTANDING and be noticed :)

    The bottom line is, he is not your horse.

    They get to decide what is best for him.
