ANy Advice she told me to leave soI left and I AM getting MY HORSE off that property..

Considering the seriousness of the situation we are in with Covid-19 I am not surprised. The horse is on their property so their rules. IF your horse is being cared for then talk to your parents about arrangements and what could be done to raise the comfort level of the BO. Relative or not they have a right to protect themselves as long as they are caring for the animals there. While the kids are being encouraged to continue riding here there are protocols in place to protect the BO. They are being taken very seriously.

Some horse people change their horse, they change their tack and discipline, they change their instructor; they never change themselves.

I wouldn't think you would have reason to be in each other's space.

Hope you find another place to board very soon.

She definitely handled it very poorly. She could have been kinder and calmer. IF her concern is the Viral pandemic, she could have stayed a safe distance (6 ft) from you and considerately explained to you that they are limiting visits to the farm and could have given you a chance to ask questions and ensure that your horse will get the care he needs. While I do understand her reasons (assuming it is the virus), again, out of her fear and possible panic...if they have other boarders, she may be panic-ing over the extra people who will be coming into her 'safe' space...again, it could have been handled so much nicer.

Sorry you had to experience this unpleasantness. Unfortunately, folks who board their horses at private and public boarding barns, may have to limit their horse time until this crisis is past us. On the flip side, folks who operate a boarding barn may/will be therefore potentially more exposed to the virus than people who can stay home without other people coming to their home.

Stay safe, stay calm, stay nice to others.
