For some reason no one at the barn I am at now seems to understand ring rules. I've always gone by the whole passing left shoulder to left shoulder and that who ever is traveling at the fastest gait gets the rail. But where I am now, it's pretty much a free for all. I always end up dodging people because they just plod along without any sort of regard for where anyone else is in the ring. One girl in particular is awful about it, she will just stop her horse and stand on the rail and chat with people while I'm cantering. I don't really know how to say anything to them though, I'm worried about offending them, especially the ones who are older than I am.
