I agree also. I worked at that show barn, even did a few shows. Honestly though, it was stressful, and not really fun. I had more fun giving lessons. When I left that place and took my horse back home (where I'm from), it was much much better. I took up trail riding, bought my first western saddle, and haven't missed all the glitz at all. The barn where I keep my Rosie may not be the best or the most modern...but she's happy, and I'm happy. I go everyday and take care of her and the owners 2 miniature donkeys, keep the barn clean, and that is my board. I don't worry about her not being fed or being abused because I'm the caretaker. The only time I rely on somebody else is when I have to go out of town for a couple of days.
