Hello, hereís my problem. Iím showing this year at the A shows with another girl whoís horse does not like mine. They where cross tried kind of close by and her horse just fired with his back legs and sadly a person was in the way and they got pinned and just fired at by this horse, mine was the target but the woman was in the wrong place at the wrong time. We ride past each other in the sand ring and her horse pins his ears at mine and goes to kick out so he doesnít like my mare thatís pretty clear. My problem is they will trailer and be tied somewhat near each other. I can tie my horse on the other side of the trailer but it's her horse that's the problem not mine. (that sound very rude of me, ) How do I polity tell her / my coach I donít want that horse 10 feet near my horse. In a trailer it would be a slant load or my trailer a straight load and either way if theyíre side by side my horse can get kicked. And even if they are a horse or 2 sperated then how can I be sure the horse won't kick out and hit the horse it's becide? And if this horse kicks and hurts my horse.. wow there will be issues. So I need to know how to prevent this and say it in a nice way. I have my own trailer, I have no problem trailering my horse alone in my trailer and pay my own gas. I don't care if I can save a few bucks to share a ride. It's always cheaper to share but in this case it's not worth it to save money.. I want to save money on my vet bills. Lol.
Any idea's or suggestions? She knows and my coach knows that her horse kicks out and doesn't like my horse but my barn is very relaxed and may think I'm being over cautious- and well I can't be when it involves my horses safety and my wallet.
