Exclamation Ignorant people.

Okay, so this is most likely in the wrong place, but I am a tad bit shocked right now.
I just got back from the barn that I keep 2 of my horses at and I am ready to strangle someone.

So, I went out for Remedy and Ebony's farrier appointment and the farriers told me that they were scheduled to do the other horse. I havent met the owners yet, so I decided to take the chance and stay to meet them. The showed up twenty minutes late for their appointment and started yelling at the farrier because he started with out them. (In the contract with the farrier it says if owner isnt present they are allowed to begin) After everyone cooled down, I kindly introduced myself to the younger lady, and she immediately said, "Youre the one with the crazy skinny horse. Get your horse trained for christ sake you're going to get someone killed." Uhm.....

<Well, Remedy is a slaughter rescue and we are working with a vet to get his weight up after he had several medical problems that stopped him from gaining weight.>

I responded with a stark look and, "excuse me? What the hell are you talking about"
She proceeded to tell me that she has been trying to RIDE MY HORSE!
She told me that several times she managed to get on and he proceeded to buck her off.

<At the moment, we are treating him for a severly out of line back and he has had daily chiropracter appointments. And he is not to be ridden because it will cause it to get worse.>

SO, I tried my best to keep calm and explain to her everything that is going on with him.

THEN! She told me that I was just "making excuses for having an out of control horse" and THEN she told me that "its all good though because she believes she has found the right bit to use" and pulled out one of the bicycle chain bits out of her tack trunk.

So, by now I have lost all sense of control and I am screaming at her to neer touch my horse again and that I will sue her if she does.

She CALLED HER MOTHER. And now her mother is threatening legal action. Uhm, are you kidding?????????
Im livid.


Anyways back to the point of the post, (besides ranting) I was wondering what everyone thought of the situation and what you all thought I should do about it.


OH AND THANK YOU FOR READING THIS NOVEL!!!!!

First off, I would tell your parents and the barn owner. Let them hash it out. You would have to talk to someone in your area about the possibility of legal action. She cannot sue you, there is nothing to sue for. But the best thing to do would be to tell your folks and let the adults hash it out.

Well some people are just so far up their own ass they don't understand what its like to really care, all they care about is image. AND you should take legal action for endangering the permeant health of your horse by riding him whilst he has back problems. And I am pleased to see that you are defending your horse. Finally I think you should remind your barn manager that no one is to ride your horse and that whilst your horse is at his/her barn, it will be his/her responsibility if something happens to your horse.

OOOPS IT SEEMS THAT I TOO HAVE WRITTEN A BIT TO MUCH, WELL IF YOU HAVE READ THIS I HOPE I HAVE HELPED YOU ?!?!

How awful! I'd look for another place for your horses, because there's more trouble ahead, with that kind of person, plus I fear for your horses' wellbeing there.

Wow!!! That is like some kind of bad dream! I would recommend a serious conversation with barn owner, and your parents, if you are a minor, and make it clear that absolutely no one is to ride your horse without permission. If the barn owner can't garauntee that, then definitely find a new place for your horses. That is ridiculous!! And, I wouldn't worry about the threats of legal action- if it wen't to court that woman's daughter would be the one in the wrong. Good luck!!

Its stories like these that make me never want to board a horse (we call it agisting over here..) Scary stuff..
If anyone should be taking legal action its you. Your horse is your property. People can't just go wandering into these barns and ride whatever horse they feel like. Then theres all the physical problems the horse has..
At the least i'd move barns. Like northern said your horses arnt safe there... If she's done it before she'll do it again..

Personally if she had climbed on one of my horses with out permission she would be looking at the back side of a cop. I would call the sheriff office and have her arrested. Might not sick but she would get the idea real fast.

Thank you everyone for your replies!
I have a meeting with the BO tomorrow to discuss everything.
I am still shocked that someone had the audacity to do that.

I would promptly load my horses into a trailer and take them away. To my backyard if I had to. At this point, there's no way of knowing if they continue to ride your horse[s], or the general welfare of them at their place. Sorry you had to go through that, and that your rescue may have to suffer for their stupidity. =\
