Assigned Pads -What?
The barn I'm taking lessons at has come up with a new system for their saddle pads so it's not a free for all anymore. They've assigned them. But if you thought that I meant each horse got their own pad, you are mistaken. Each student gets their own. We have to take this pad home and wash it every week before we bring it back. Can someone tell me how this makes sense? I have to bring home this saddle pad and wash it, with what? I can't make a load, I don't have enough of my own pads to bring home and make a load. (I have an ancient washing machine and it hops around when there's not enough in it.) Maybe it's a responsibility thing because the majority of the students are quite young. I'm the oldest at 17. But I can't quite make sense of having to do their laundry, it just makes more for me. And they have enough pads for each horse to have two. Would it not make sense to have the pads assigned to the horses, and then have the owners wash the pads that they own? I don't know, I just fail to see how good of a system this is.
Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.
