    I went through this with my last barn, she had 100 gallon troughs that she would let get bone dry. That means DAYS of laziness and not checking the water. I always worried since the barn was 45 min...

    Trot Trot, I feel like we are living parallel lives. We have also been everywhere looking for a farmette and we are tired of the "goldilocks" syndrome of too little of this or too much of that. We...

  10. Can horses be turned out on a Christmas tree farm?

    We have found a property that has 6 acres, close to our jobs and school and a nice house. The catch is that about 3 acres of the property was a Christmas tree farm that has been left to grow. There...

    At the last barn we were at the idiot "trainer" got angry at a young horse for tossing his head during a ride so she tied his head so tight connecting his head to a girth. She put him in a stall...

    I so feel your pain! We have been looking very actively for over 2 years now. We call it the Goldilocks syndrome...too far, too much $$, too small, too much initial work, etc.

    My husband and...

    mbm, wouldn't it be the opposite? If the barn owner tries to defer a situation that would be respected by most.

    But, Moonwitch, if you saw a small, frail looking child(even at 13) with very little balance and NO experience would you, as the barn owner, step in to recommend that the parents not trust the...

    Trixie is correct in saying that the advertising is very"soothing" to the parents who may be honestly trying to educate themselves as to the safety of a trail ride. The family with the accident are...

    I am worried about that one place because of this incident but as the thread progresses I am realizing that is not an isolated problem and that education seems key, especially for parents. Yes, it...

    I also agree, my own daughter had good balance and fairly good horse sense at 9 yrs old. I wouldn't want a "coverall" rule for children.

    My argument lies in the fact that when the barn owner sees...

    I have no desire to target one business, I don't even know which one they went to. I was posting to try to figure out how to keep this KNOWN situation from happening again at that place WITHOUT...

    I agree that young children should not be trail riding and will be the first to say I thought that when I heard the story.
    However, I believe that it is 100% the barn's fault for allowing...
  21. Yes, but WHERE exactly would we spread the word?...

    Yes, but WHERE exactly would we spread the word? And how? I'm a bit at a loss as to the venue that would work.
  22. Is there a way to spread the word about a bad trail riding barn without slander?

    I have a friend who had her children's lives jeopardized by a trail riding barn. Without giving too many details out on this forum, there were several rank beginners under the age of 11 on a ride and...

    They have them at our boarding barn and they will come up behind you and SCREAM bloody murder. Very much like fingernails on a chalk board. Agreed that they will quickly desensitize any horse.

    My gelding was 5 when gelded and seemed to "remember" a lot of the stallion behavior years later. He does best with geldings that are equal or slightly more dominant than him and lives quite...
