Oh my! I'm so glad I was never that terrible when I was that age. [I assume a teen?] o_O

You had every right to rip her a new one. I sure hope if that ever happens to me, it's with Gracie, who will certainly beat up the strange horse in her space.

However. You are an adult, and this is obviously a child, and given her attitude in this situation, she'd likely shoot back some ridiculous snotty remark. So I would go to the management of the barn, explain the situation, and have the BO handle it. No reason to give a silly girl a reason to be silly. =]

A little kid glaring at an adult who's a complete stranger to her? Good lord. Hehe I personally would make her mad and say how it's such a wonderful post with it's location and gorgeously sanded wood, hmm....I think I'll tye Cinny here more often. Lol

Thats not an unwritten rule. Its just common sense. You don't tie your horse that close to a strange horse without asking. When we run gymkana all the kids know that.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

At every barn I've been to, certain people had "designated" spaces for themselves. To the point if I tied there and they came up, they'd ask me to move. Whhaaat?

I mean, it's rude. Most of the time it's riders who have been at the barn long enough that they "claimed" their spots close the tack room or whatever in a convenient way before there were a lot of riders. For some it's because the space is in front of their horse's stall, which is more understandable than just "I like this post, it's close to the tack room and I'm lazy so MOVE!"

That being said, I think it is incredibly rude of this person to do that, and if I may say so, a bit passive aggressive. I would talk to the BO if I were you and say "This person came up and did this the other day and I was a little shocked...are there some posts that are typically only used by certain riders? I would appreciate it if said person didn't risk the safety of the horses to prove a point in the future though."

I would just tell her my mate is in heat and VERY aggressive to other horses, so I hope her horse doesn't get hurt being so close!
Haha but I'm sure by the time I got that sentence out rena would have demonstrated that tip by tearing a strip off her poor horse.

Hahaha pony posse, that's priceless! I wish there was a pony posse at my barn XD even though there are only two girls my age or close to it, haha. We are our own gang at shows, but were a nice gang XD

I am so glad that our mares are at home with us. Most of the ladies that I ride with have to board, and there always seems to be a new episode of (what I call for soap opera watchers) "As the Barn Turns". It seems that every barn has its share of wackos.
Good luck.

Normally I probably would have ripped her a new one, but I think because I'm new, etc etc...and I was more worried about removing Cin from the situation that I just didn't say anything.
I can totally see where you're coming from . I started boarding at a show barn ( i know big mistake right there ) and everyone was so snotty . Of course we all know the rights and rules of the ring and so on left to left but at this barn if someone wanted to go somewhere they were going regardless of left to left . Um hello !!!! Bathing for the shows was ridiculous everyone would be like i call this wash bay blah blah . I jumped on and walked around without my helmet on till my friend went to my locker to get my helmet ( MAYBE 5 minutes ) and some girl told on me and I had the barn owner come and talk to me . Snotty girls it was so unenjoyable being there . Needless to say I lasted at that barn for approx 4 months and I was gone . Not to mention the barn owner was a huge B . Sonya came down with namonia ( spelling ) because they never took her outside and fed her dusty hay ugh some people !!!

What I would do is wait it out a little bit but speak up and say something . It's horrible but girls are mean and im sure this just doing this to you because your new . It is hard to have your horse at a barn that you cant enjoy when riding your horse is the one thing you really enjoy. Finding a good barn to board at is hard !
