Not sure if this is the place to post this, mods can move it if necessary.
So, I've been riding at the same barn (Barn A) for about 9 years now and have made some fantastic friends (Left briefly over the summer to a jumping barn, but im back now) and things have never been great between the barn owner and I. We have very different opinions, and don't see eye to eye.
The barn is a Morgan Breeding barn and they show English, Western, and Saddleseat. I have always been an english rider, and was persuing jumping. The BO didnt like this, she doesnt condone jumping (even though she has a jumping coach) and didnt like the fact that my horse wasnt a Morgan.
When I fell off last spring, I was unable to ride for quite a while, and wasnt sure if I would ever be able to jump/ride english again, I came back to Barn A and started riding one of thier western horses and was getting ready to show this summer with him. Because I was riding one of her Morgans, and showing with them, my relationship with the BO improved greatly.
She mentioned just over a month ago that she had a room for rent if anyone was looking. I ended up renting this room, as I was looking to move out anyways.
Things were not all peaches and cream with me living there though. We have been continuously fighting, and even though its not professional, she has been treating me coldly at the barn as well.
Today, she asked me to move out, and I willingly agreed.
So my question is,
Should I stay at Barn A even though she is treating me rudely there, and I believe slandering me to some of the other riders, or move to another barn?
Barn A has fantastic people, its really close to where I live and work, and its cheap.
If you think I should move, where to? Im located in Beaumont, AB and will be looking for an all around barn where I can start jumping again.
If you read all that, thanks!
For without a horse, i could not fly.
