barn drama

  1. Horse Talk
    Ever watch a horse's facial expressions do a 180 when they hear a certain persons voice or see a certain person's car drive up to the barn? At my barn (where I am a long time barn manager) the owner has regular lessons with a dressage instructor lady. And she's not my cup of tea, nor some of the...
  2. Horse Boarding
    I own a barn and I am leasing part of my barn out and the person that is running a boarding/training/kids program. They are behind in board, causing drama and not being friendly to others in the barn. Its not a good sitituation. As the owner of the barn what can I do? She wants to have a...
  3. Horse Boarding
    I joined here because I need help. I have been at my barn for three years (since the time my trainer moved to there) and I started showing last year and it was a lot of fun. There weren't many people but we all liked each other. I always got my lessons and never had one canceled. This year it...

  6. Horse Talk
    Recently, I moved to a new barn. In the past, I have been at barns where I am basically the only boarder (around my age and who is actively at the barn). At my new barn, there are so many more people than I am used to. With this bigger, "fancier," barn comes some unwelcome judgement. I have been...

    I just started taking riding lessons about a month ago, and they are my favorite thing in the world. Before I started riding I was extremely anxious to begin jumping. Obviously since I have started I now know it will be a while before I can jump, and I also and found out that the barn that I am...
  8. Barn Maintenance
