    Showing up to the barn early?

    My riding instructor asked me during my lesson today if I would like to clean out some stalls in exchange of riding in her clinic this weekend. It's not a fair deal and I'm going to have to come up with a way to pay her back, but I'm so excited that I'm going to get to ride in it!

    Problem is, I'm going to have a hard time getting there. My only option is to get a ride with my grandma before she leaves for work, which will make me arrive around 6:30am. An hour earlier than I planned. I don't mind being at the barn and I'm sure I'll find something to do, but do you think my riding instructor would mind?

    Why not just give her a call and ask?

    Ask her I'm sure she'd let you know if it was okay or not.

    I personally don't see anything wrong with being early. As long as you're prepared :)

    I will ask her tomorrow, I was just wondering what you all thought about it.

    She might mind because it might be before she would be there herself and there might be a liability issue having you there alone.

    I'd suggest asking and taking a book to read outside the barn if it's an issue.

    I would ask your instructor

    Sometimes they don't want you with the horses alone. So bring a book :)

    I found a way to get to the barn on time, but thanks anyways. I also don't think she would care if I was there without anyone there, because I'm usually there by myself before my riding lessons.
