well i got into a fight with my BO today. I went out just to lightly work outlaw my lease horse since my back is still messed up and im really not supposed to ride at all. Well i asked if i could just use the small arena as they were taking a lesson in the bigger one when she pops off with "either you take a lesson or you dont ride" (i also have issues with the particular trainers methods aka draw reins and not teachign brakes before go)well we argued for a bit and finally said i would take a lesson against my better judgement. Well i was warming up while waiting for everyone when my BO comes riding in in draw reins saying i have to put them on outlaw(he does not need thme and i am against using them) well we argued again for about 10 mins when she said"fine get off my ranch" so i said fine im gone bye. Well then as im waiting for my mom to come and get me my friend comes out of the lesson to talk to me and my BO starts yelling at her and saying that shes going to call our moms. Well once my mom gets there she comes riding out and immediately starts to lie and say how she asked if i could ride and i was refusing to dowhat they were doing(which i was as i dont believe in using long reings) and then yells at me when i called her out on it.
I gues what im trying to ask is did i do the right thing by leaving?? I mean i loved the family feel there and riding there but i just didnt agree wiht some of the things like certain trainer and tools and such and we were also all worked (cleaning all pens/watering/feeding all 19 of the horses out there) every time we went out to ride. What would you have done in my situation.

There are a zillion nice horses available to lease at barns where they don't force you to ride in draw reins and where you can ride or work with your lease horse outwith a lesson.

yeah i know a few people and last night also got a message from the BO she was saying how she wanted me to put draw reins on to help protect my back cause it would be a low and slow lesson but even low and slow half an hour is still to much for my back at anything more then a walk. So even though she apologized i think i might just switch somewhere else.
