Kids leaving the barn

Just recently...our barn lost 4 girls. They went to ride at another barn. Which is sad. One girl left to follow the other 3 girls who all ride at the same barn i think.

The girl said she left because she doesnt have any friends to hang with at our barn.

I dont have any barn friends to hang with...and you dont see me leaving...i will always stay at this barn. :)

I dont get why people want to ride someplace else. As far as i know...our barn is pretty cheap money wise for lessons. Everywhere else is pretty pricey. sigh

I will miss those girls. I was fun watching them ride there horses!

I wouldn't stay somewhere I had no friends. Maybe they felt unwelcome?

Having fun is important......while price may be your deciding factor for you social factors are important to others.

I had a border who supposedly wanted good care for her horse. I provided good dark, almost bug free shelter in the summer. Now her horse lives with no shelter from the insects. Funny how people can overlook that for something else.

People have different priorities, and money is not always a deciding factor (plus people don't always disclose fully why they do something). Besides lessons, rings, barn may be better in that new stable, so that could be part of the reason to move.

They left because your barn is closed on Saturdays!

I have no friends at my barn either. I so wish I did - it's lonely out there, just me sometimes. I don't actually have any friends who are into horses or anything... So it's not like I can even share my stories with anyone. (Well, kind of my boyfirend, who has my horse's brother, but he doesn't want to do anything with Levi but ride him down the trails, so it doesn't really count). But, my barn is nice, so I plan on staying there.
