I'd probably be in jail for assaulting the BO.

Where are you at?
My fiance is Italian, so he is going there this morning to have a chat with the BO. I asked my fiance to first phone the private property we previously held Corman on to see if we could move him back there immediately, if need be. We just paid (3 days ago) our monthly rent which isn't cheap, I feel a little ill on the thought of losing it, but my horse's safety and my respect cost more. Nothing he says can justify him taking it upon himself to allow other people to ride my horse. I just cannot imagine him for a second letting other people ride any of the other private horses, or any of those owners being okay with it. Maybe because of the Language difference he thought it okay to be completely disrespectful of me and my property *shrug*. Anyway, I could never trust him again after this which is very sad. I will let you guys know the outcome.

If that happened to me, the rider would be removed from the horse, the police would be called out, my horse would be moved to a new facility, and the old barn owner would be sent a bill for usage of my horse and retraining costs. I would be beyond livid.

Soenjer, yes, the man came on our property, removed the horse from the paddock, took my gear out of the shed. I could have called the police but I think I dealt with it in a better way. When I say I nearly tore his pockets off with the lunge whip, it's true. I'd been practising with it for several years, just for hellery, and got so I could pick the petals off a flower. So back pockets and his butt were an easy target.

Haha I can just picture it! People are unbelievable. I would be absolutely furious if that happened at my barn. My BO won't even put Hunter in the field without texting me.

A total NO from me. I'm very possessive about my horses.
I wonder what the insurance implications would be?

Keep us updated. I hope that the discussion with him goes well today and you're able to come to some kind of agreement (like him refunding your board you just paid) without too much trouble.

Hey guys,

Okay, so it turns out the way someone had mentioned. He thought he was doing me a favour since my horse hadn't been ridden in a few days. He told me that the girl who was riding him, is also a private boarder. He asked her not to ride her horse that day and if she wouldn't mind riding mine (since I'm sick). He also told me she is upset with him because of what happened. I told him I really don't care how she feels or whether she is upset with you or not. Fact is I do not want my horse ridden without my permission. Anyway, he said he made a big mistake, he really thought he was doing a good thing and now he has two boarders upset with him. He also promised this was the first time, and only his son had previously ridden Corman. He also apologised for the cut under his forelock and swore he hadn't seen it.

Some might think me naive, but I believe him. As I first mentioned he is a good man and he has helped me a lot over the last few months, so I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt and stay on as a boarder. However this doesn't mean I've put my guard down. Both my fiance and I will show up there at random hours and make sure everything is as it should be. Also today I will be buying a tack box so my saddle and bridle aren't accessible. If anything of the sort happens again he will be moved immediately.

I want to thank everyone for their responses and thoughts. I really appreciated all of them.

Happy riding!

I'm glad that it all worked out without too much drama.
