I started out riding english because it was what most people did in my area, then when I moved to a different area, I thought I would like to try riding western and I bought a nice quarter horse mare, a granddaughter of Poco Bueno and boarded her at a well known stable.
Since I was new to western riding, everyone there was giving me advice on how I should be doing things, often contradictory so I did become confused especially as some advice didn't make sense and I knew better even tho' new to western riding.
I finally just thanked people for their input and only listened to the owners as they were excellent riders and trainers.
The others were all experts in their own minds and I suppose were trying to help but don't listen to everyone even if they have been riding for years.

Avna.. I have never seen that method used in my area. I have been to a few barns in No. CA. that had manure and bedding stacks in stalls and to me it stunk.
I would never use that method. In my area, you would have animal control at your barn as the law is ALL manure must be removed..

Hi Horselovr, All!

Google "Critical Thinking". Apply this process to the things you encounter in life, particularly (and including this post, BTW) stuff from The Internet. Enough said about that.

I will comment that in my experience, you can judge the creditability of a horse person just by watching how they interact with their equines, and (perhaps even more so) by how the animals respond to them.


PS: I keep the stalls clean; the horses have made their own "poop-pile" outside the barn, and they _do_ seem to enjoy the warmth on cold days.
