    Man, if I were you I wouldn't gave that lady my 2 cents. I don't let anyone like that bother me, I've had too many weird/arrogant/stupid boarders come to our barn and try to run it the way they think is right. They just get kicked out or ignored.

    The most crazy boarder we had was this family who had a shetland pony, a NSH, and some other horse that she'd say was a different breed every other week. They'd come once a week, and they'd demand that they have the whole arena to themselves for the whole day. They'd always run around trying to correct others on their riding or whatever. The lady would yell at the managers kids, even though she let her kids play in the middle of the road and even in the manure pile (lmbo). The lady thought she was the best rider ever, but let's just say it was quite a show watching her ride her mystery horse, to the point where we'd all stand around the arena wall and watch her. It was funny. The worst part was that the lady's husband, a more than likely 250lb. Man give or take, rode their shetland pony and JUMPED him constantly. Their horses coliced a lot because they would leave them in their stalls with no water after they rode them for hours. And she'd yell at us when we'd try to give them water, or if we gave them banamine to help them! She'd tell us to leave them where they were with no water or food. They wouldn't clip the pony either, so he would colic from the heat. I'm just glad to say our BO finally kicked them out!

    My favorite thing to do to people like that is when they say something snotty to you, look them in the eye with a look on your face that says "OMG you are the stupidest ***** alive" or "WHY are you talking to me?". Just keep staring in their eyes and don't say anything. Eventually, they will walk away and lots of times, they will completely avoid you after that. :P I'm evil, I know, but I work in a prison and it works on the inmates so why not her. Hahahaha

    I like your wa of dealing with things like that but when you know someone is going to be sharing the same place as you every other day, I'm not sure it would be the most ideal. Luckily for me tho I'm a close and personal friend of the BO (one of my best friends actually) so I let her know about everything that happens out there and she'll care for things as she sees fit but sometimes man is it tempting eh.

    Thats why I like where I'm boarding now, no obnoxious know-it-alls to ruin my barn time! When I had my QH gelding though I boarded at a small place, there were only four boarders and seven horses total. This one woman knew it all and was constatly telling everyone else ALL about it ALL the time! I was no expert and I don't mind advice, although I prefer to ask for it usually . But as I wasn't hurting my horse and he wasn't hurting me I would have preferred to be left alone! Finally one day I had to let her have it, but the funny thing was it was not even horse related! I had asked for some advice (haha) on good local tack shops and we took my car to go see one.......she started in almost immediately.......I was going to fast, I was following too close, yada yada, yada! Finally I pulled onto the side of the road and said lady I may not be a horse expert but I'm trying to learn , however I do know how to drive and if you don't like the way I do that then you can get your ass out of my car and walk becasue I'm not listening to this crap all the way to the tack shop and back! The look on her face was really funny! But she didn't bother me much about anything after that!

    great post Got2. At the barn I honestly try not to let anyone get to me and I usually succeed except for this last time. I feel even tho I made it clear with this boarder I didn't really care about her financial situation(whether it really is existent or NOT) but I still feel frustrated mainly at myself for letting someone trample all over me. It wasn't really until after the fact that I realized what I should have said at that exact moment(when she first said what she said), I think something we all do at one moment or another.
    That's another thing that frustrates me to no end. I always have everything to say when defending someone or speaking up for someone but yet I can't always find the right things to say for myself in the situations I need it the most. Don't have anyone to blame than myself. Survival of the fittest really.
