    Seems this will be the last time I seek help from the forums. Hoping this thread just dies out.

    Everything has worked out fine between girl and myself. We spoke and she is completely fine with...

    The horses are already outside 24/7, I'm not leading them or anything of the sort and none of them are nervous of any sort. I gave the horse a quick brush down and that was that. I've known the BO...
  3. Girl with tacking mistakes and trying to buy...

    Girl with tacking mistakes and trying to buy unsuitable horse was at a previous barn. I left there because of drama, price, and just overall care. I believe girl has since stopped riding. Cleaning...

    Yes! This is exactly how my barn is. It's only the 4 of us and out horses. We usually always try and text each other if someone's horse looks a bit off or whose feeding and such. I usually try not to...

    Sadly, I cannot afford to switch barns. Income is tight and while the horse being not well kept, the barn is great. BO does occasionally text girl saying "horse misses you" or "dobbin is looking for...

    Only sprayed the back to help his muscles relax a bit since they seemed very sore and tense. I know I don't dictate how horses should be cared for but I believe a clean stall and clean horse are just...
  7. I'm going to refrain from doing anything to the...

    I'm going to refrain from doing anything to the horse for the time being until it looks like he's really not getting any attention, then I'll step up and ask about the occasional groom here and...

    I think it's saddle fit from the horse being underweight to be honest. Girl is also a bit rough with his back as in plopping around and landing roughly on his back after after a jump. It looks like...

    Think I'll be investing in a curry and a book for the girl lol. Going to leave the horse alone though. Not my horse, not my problem. Can only sit back and offer advice at this point.
  10. I usually try not to ride the horse because of...

    I usually try not to ride the horse because of his reaction to a saddle being placed on him and being tacked up, he's not a mean horse and just tries to walk away from whatever is happening then...

    Thank you everyone for your replies. Just going to mind my own business and not do anything else to the horse. Might try suggesting different methods to owner and maybe some tips for cleaning, etc.

    Thank you for the very helpful advice :) the curry is actually a really great idea. Going to have to remember that when I go to the tack store next time.

    I've mentioned the back soreness to her...

    Will leave the horse alone at this point. Will also hope the BO sorts the things out with the girl. Just felt bad for the horses lack of grooming. Just going to MMOB from now on lol

    Only did the spray once, girl uses it for his legs from time to time (go figure), just going to bite my tongue and wave from the sidelines at this point.

    You are right about BO, might mention...

    I hope this isn't sarcasm :( I can never tell with COTH posts these days lol

    It's just a spray for muscle soreness, It's made with a vet liniment (can't remember off the top of my head.) I've only done this once and he seemed a bit more relaxed after a few minutes. As soon as...
  17. I've mentioned the back soreness before to owner,...

    I've mentioned the back soreness before to owner, she said she asked vet and said its fine. It didn't look fine when she went to go saddle him up and he flinched and tried to evade her. She gets...

    Did not think grooming the horse would be a terrible thing, just was giving him a quick brush down as it looks like he was developing some sort of fungus at one point.

    Will keep my brushes to...
  19. Barn owner knows I've groomed the horse before....

    Barn owner knows I've groomed the horse before. It's a small backyard barn, we all get along well but me and BO have both talked about young riders absence from horse care. She clearly loves the...
  20. Say something, or say nothing at all? WWYD?

    I got my answer, thank you everyone who replied with advice!
  21. Best way to get wet spots out of a saddle?

    I've googled and searched the Chronicle data base and everyone seems to have a different way to go about doing this (or the forum is from 4 years ago and has 3 posts and I feel bad reviving it!).

    It's on a metal saddle rack, although sometimes when tacking up I do have to put it on a fence post. Come to think of it I wouldn't be surprised if that is what it's from since I have had a few...

    Wearing underneath on gullet?

    Bought a used Beval Natural a few months ago, just started actually riding in it about a month ago. When grabbing the saddle I felt what feels like a beam across the gullet that I haven't felt before...

    I just recently purchased duct tape, diapers, and apple cider vinegar at my local dollar store. Cashier says to me "Sounds like my Friday night." Since I'm about that age to have children I decided...

    It was his front right leg it looked like, although on the lunge he looks fine and trotting by himself he looks fine as well. He had got his feet done the day before so I'm thinking that could have...
