    Yearling
    I took on a weekend job at a boarding facility. I've been there for about 2.5 months now. There is this one arab/Qh gelding that I have only ever seen the owner out to see him once! He is old and stocks up almost every day from being in the stall all night and only being in a tiny turn out during the day for a couple hours then brought back into the stall. The thing that I don't get is that he could be turned out to pasture in the back 40 and she would have half what she is paying for inside board! I understand that the hours on the barn are kinda wanky. People are only aloud to come during 9-6. It was 11-6 about 2 weeks ago...so I can understand during the week because people do work...but ya...iave never seen this girl...and you can tell his gelding is starving for attention. He just loves when you clean his stall he is always right there sniffin my pockets or just saying hello...


    Ok...rant over...thanks!

    I have to agree with the cleaning part. I spend a lot of time sweeping out the aisles of the barn after I get done riding paul. The next day, i'll come in and find hoof dirt, poo, and hair all over the floor. I know who is doing it but can't do much about it because they are related to the people who own the barn but how much would it take for you to sweep up a huge pile of poo so other people's horses don't walk through it. These are the same people who will put their horses back into a dirty stall after riding and wait for someone else to come and clean it out. I use to but haven't in a long time.

    People who ride to close to your horses rear end then act all disgusted and angry when your horse kicks out.

    People who ride a horse and turn it back out without brushing, or cooling it out...

    People who board a horse, and never see it...why not sell it if you're not committed to paying attention, training, and riding it? There's one horse at the place I've been at for the last year, that I have NEVER met the owner of...why own it if you'll never see it? The horse is an absolute sweet heart too!

    People talk about training your horse while you are working it, but you can tell don't know a thing about training horses...I'm sorry but if I need your input, I'll ask for it, and I'm only going to ask if I know you'll know something about it!

    I can totally relate. There are people at my barn that are just like what you said. There is this one horse there and her owner is never out there at all. But the reason is because Reba (the horse) used to be the owner's daughter's horse, and the daughter passed away. The mother isn't really a horse person, but she can't bear to sell Reba, and I think it's hard for her to be with the horse, too. Reba gets ridden by other people occasionally, though.

    And the bit about the know-it-alls who don't know anything sounds really familiar, too. It seems like there has to be one at every barn.

    Agreed!!!! April wont kick out if you get close but when you run into her she doesn't like that too well.

    I hate it when in a rail class (and you are like 2 ft from the rail) someone who is going faster will try to get between you and the rail!!! Or they ride your butt the entire time to get their horse to slow down.

    I hate parents that are way too pushy with their kids. Sometimes it seems that they are trying to pursue their dreams through their kids and then the kid just doesnt want to show anymore. I was at an open show once and this girl had placed like 4th or something and when she came out of the arena her mom attacked her- yelling at her for what mistakes she made that caused her not to win... it was an open show- should be learning time, its not like tons are at stake other then a blue ribbon.

    I also hate those type of people that cry if they don't win or place. When I was showing growing up I would compete against the same girls... and some of those would cry and complain on why they didnt place- I would get frusterated but my mom always told me that if I ever cried or would start complaining we would leave the show- not placing/winning just meant I had more practice to do.

    Sorry for my rant but it does feel good
