From what I've seen, I think this girl is someone an Outcast...she's in the Pony Posse, but doesn't talk or hang with them, they don't hang or talk to her. There is something up with her. Maybe she's mean because the group they have set her up with won't really have much to do with her. She ALWAYS has a look on her face as if she hates being there...which maybe her parents are forcing her to ride? She looks about 12.

I think I may try to talk nicely to her and find out what's up. If I'm right, then maybe I can be someone she can talk to, if I'm wrong and she's just a big fat B and that's why the girls don't like her than I can then go to management.

'As The Barn Turns'...haha! I think soo many barns have that. Especially a show barn, a large barn or a barn with a lot of younger riders.

Fortunately my current barn is fairly small, so we rarely have barn drama.

It's really sad but I kind of like barn drama. I won't get into it, but it is usually very entertaining.

Maybe it is her post because she pee'd on it sometime in the past, marking it and making it hers?

I'm with Spyder - I'd of told her where to go and how to get there. Or I'd of untied her horse and put it elsewhere, then continued on doing what I was doing with my horse.

We teach people how to treat us, and by you not saying anything and moving your horse, made it so she won. So now that she's pushed the envelope with you, she will do it again. You need to stand up for yoursef and your horse and show her that you are not someone easily folded by some pompus tween.

I personally think that you did the right thing. And as it was stated, don't allow your horse to get injured or injure another because of the stupidity and ignorance of others. If I were you I would have done the same thing however I would have commented to her that what she did was putting the horses at risk. It would be horrible if something had happened and you being the newbie, kicked out of the stables all together. I believe that by being non-confrontational avoids further issues. Good job on being the bigger, smarter person!

From the sounds of it, this kid is barely a teenager (if that). She needs to learn how to be respectful and courteous to others and also to have a degree of common sense around horses. She is clearly not learning this from her parents or anyone else.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

I am a bit of a hateful, vindictive B so I would have been tempted to just let the horses fight it out (if it were my Dobe that was tied there). He is my aggressive little turd that acts like a proud cut stud if he feels challenged by another horse. However, I would have probably felt bad for her horse after Dobe hurt him. Although 12 years old or not, she would have gotten a huge chunk of my mind.

Good lord, if any 12 year old snot nosed ankle biter waltzed up to me and tried to pull that crap, she'd be limping for a fortnight!

My horse is a wuss, so I wouldn't be inclined to let them fight it out - also, really, unfair to her horse regardless of how much of a witch she is. Her horse already has to suffer with her as an owner, somehow if she's that ignorant I doubt she'd care much if your horse tore him to shreds.

Personally, I would have asked her once to kindly find another pole, as I was here first and I don't know if my horse will kick hers or not. If she chose to ignore me, I would untie her horse and retie it to another pole myself. And if she chose to try and intervene physically - I'd kick her in the shins.

I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.

I would NOT let the horses fight it out. Is it her horse's fault he got tied to a post near your horse by a little snotty tween? No way. Now, definitely let them fight it out if that little tween is standing BETWEEN the two horses.....maybe you'll get lucky and Cinny'll land a kick her way You could be right about her needing someone to talk to, but regardless, she must know that behavior isn't earning her any friends.

I haven't seen her since. I talked to one of the trainers about her and in the trainer's words she is one of those rich kids who gets bought off by her parents because they are too busy for therefore she gets ANYTHING she wants, and no discipline...she basically rules her parents and everybody else...except the trainers who won't put up with it.
