The horse is yours.
Therefore - the barn manager should be aware of the mare's quirks. Even if she's handling her on a daily basis (moving her from field to field, bringing her in and out, etc.)
She is NOT legally allowed to decide what to do with YOUR horse.
If she refuses to comply with your requests, I'd be reporting her, and moving barns promptly.
A horse is the projection of peoples' dreams about themselves - strong, powerful, beautiful - and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence.
