Has the BM talked to you previously and told you your horse was an "issue" and allowed you time to "fix" it? I am just curious sine just the other day on here we had someone post who was on the other side of the story, of sorts...there is a horse at her barn who is a danger to the other owners and their horses. THe advise here on the forum was to get the BM to tell the notify the owner and fix the dangerous horse, or give the owner the ultimatum. THis sounds rather similar to me.

My other question would be-if you are a minor, are you comfortable telling the adult (BO) hands off your horse? If not, you may want to have your parents back you up. Like has been said-money talks. I have also seen instances where BO/BM's take some liberties of sorts with the horses of teens that they would not think of doing with an adults horse. Just an observation- THe "kids" tend to let it slide whereas the adult horse owners are not so apt to do that.

Is this guy actually riding your horse? Or doing ground work with it? I am a little confused.

Doesn't matter. If she did not okay it with you first, she has no right touching your horse. That was a pretty ballsy thing to do.

It makes me wonder what else she's doing without your permission.

I totally agree. I don't get it either.

On the flip side, if I had a dangerous horse at my barn that kicks my horse when we walk by, I would want the horse fixed, as another paying boarder. And if you are not getting results, maybe it is best to have her work with it. Otherwise can she ask you to leave?

But I still cannot see the barn manager having this inexperienced horse person working with it. Doesn't add up.

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.

Actually, that depends. IF this mare is an issue and is endangering other horses or owners, it is very much the BO's business. After all, it is her liability if something happens. SHe has every right to tell the horse owner to fix it or leave. My guess is she may have told this owner to fix it, and that has not happened.
I am not thinking we are getting the whole story...something is just not right.

I had a similar problem years ago, we boarded a yearling at a new boarding stable. The bo's teen daughter kept trying to play trainer and work with him after we told them not to. Basically in the end if they feel there right and your wrong there not going to listen. If the bm wont back off its time to move. Once we moved out we were alot more relaxed and stress free knowing nobody was going to mess up our horse.

I would be beyond pissed off if anybody took out my horse and did anything with him without MY permission, let alone that somebody else giving yet another individual the "okay" to work with my horse. I would definitely be all over their case immediately and demand they leave him alone immediately. Work with the horse yourself (as planned) or hire a real trainer to help. How frustrating!

Tell the Barn Owner thanks for the offer but you don't want an inexperienced person working with your horse because if he is hurt you wont be responsible. Tell the barn owner you don't have insurance for others to ride or handle your horse and you would prefer it not happen.
If your horse is kicking at others tell the barn owner you would be happy for any suggestions from her/him and any help so long as you are present when the help takes place.
Leave a note posted on your horses stall that no one is allowed to ride or work with him that says something like...
Other than daily turnout or stall cleaning as per our board agreement
Please do not ride, exercise, train on my horse for any reason!! And sign your name.
If they ignore find a new barn. If a barn owner does not respect your wishes you certainly don't want to be there.

That's my feeling too, frank. Even in the worst barns around here the BO is very careful about letting some stranger to handle someone's horse let alone work with it. First, there is always a liability issue, second, indeed the person may take a business away.

As for the dangerous horses I've been in this situation with my mares, and I think it's very valid to bring up the concerns to the owner of the dangerous horse. When I asked the BO to do something about the situation (when we had very aggressive new horse, and eventually my younger mare (2 yo at the moment) got all beat up to the point of being lame for a week) and BO refused I just moved my horses (never regretted it ).
