What to do?? Need Advice
Well, things have not been so great at the farm where Sweety is... the BO seems to have it out for me and tries to get me in trouble for stupid things (like leaving the gate open to the pony's paddock - I dont even go in there! But I was the only one there so it had to be me) As well as her owner doesnt seem to understand that her saddle just does not fit! And using a pad makes it worse! Not to mention is a good 30 min drive from my house, sure its only 10 from work, but I only leave from work 1 or 2 (depending on the sched) times a week... And the barn seems to be getting dirtier and dirtier every time I go out, last time I walked through at least 3 spider webs just in the tack area! Ew... and the BO SMOKES in the barn!
Also, the footing in the outdoor ring is horrid, its hard on one side and then the other side is so deep Im afraid shes going to pull a tendon! I've been riding in the field, but next summer I wouldnt be able to until after its been cut (so late August) and the indoor arena is so small, I cant even canter her.
I guess what Im asking is, do you think it's worth leasing her? Or should I try and find something closer to home?
Thanks for reading guys,
