Fast forward three years to now. She's also the barn owner(technically her parents own the barn), and she chose to kick out someone because it was "a business decision" which doesn't make any sense, because the horse was being used as a lesson horse and there are plenty of other boarders who don't allow their horses to be used as lesson horses.
Another thing, awhile ago I was introducing my horse to clippers after my lesson there and she was kind of scared so I asked my trainer for help. She tried clipping her for probably two minutes before getting a chain lead rope, and putting the chain on my horses gums. It was above her top row of teeth and it just seemed to scare her more than anything. I don't think my horse has been around clippers since I got her and I don't really feel that she was being "bad" or anything.
I have a good friend who takes lessons there too and she went in for a lesson the other day, but the lesson prior to hers ran 20 minutes over hers, so my friend's mom wanted to know why(her lessons usually last an hour and this one only lasted about 40 minutes). So my friend's mom asked why, and she said, "oh the horse was being really good and stuff so we wanted to keep it going". My friends mom was like"Well, I kind of feel like I'm being jipped(like ripped off a little bit) here." and she said "Well, if you don't like it, you can go to another barn."
What do you guys think about this?
