    Yes, you're right, she doesn't say things like that.

    I think part of my problem is I consider her a friend, and I have tried to use her as a source of support, but I end up just feeling judged. ...

    Judgy barnmate - how to respond?

    My horse can be a hot ticket at times. Mostly he's very good and willing, but he can get spooky and hot and explosive. When he gets like this, he can bolt big scary out of control bolts.

    Feeding barn cats

    Hi guys,
    I'm having a little bit of an issue at my current barn. I'm looking for people to either tell me I'm overreacting, or that my concerns are reasonable.

    The short version of the story...

    That's what I'm going to talk to them about - turning him out after the morning group goes out and bringing him in before they come in. I'm not sure about asking them to bring him in at lunch and...

    I guess I should clarify, I think some of the problem with this situation is my horse and his temperament. I suspect some horses would be OK. My horse is a hot horse and winds up very quickly.

    Thanks everyone for your input. I'll talk with them tomorrow and see where I get there, and in the meantime I'm going to keep my eyes open for other barns.

    Thanks, everyone. I do know it's not unheard of to turnout this way, and I wouldn't mind if my horse weren't tearing around and tearing his shoes off.

    I think I just need to talk with them and...

    I think if I knew they would turn him out after the groups go out, I would be OK with that. I don't completely understand their turnout situation and why there's a separate group that doesn't go...

    They do know, I think.

    I had heard that they do this with the groups - what I didn't realize was that my horse was out while this was happening.

    It's a mixed discipline barn - mostly...
  17. Be careful what you wish for, or Am I overreacting?

    i moved recently to a new city and brought my horse along with me. I had some trouble finding a barn that had good turnout and didn't require lessons but finally found one.

    Overall the care has...

    Another dilemma...

    What to pay for trailering my horse...

    Hopefully this is a fairly straightforward question:

    What would I pay a friend to haul my horse 90 miles for me? This is in the Northeast if that makes a difference.

    Thanks in advance. :)

    Overflocked saddle - will it settle?

    I had my saddle refitted recently and I think it may have been stuffed too much in the back. It feels a little too high in the back and I sort of feel like I'm being flung out of the saddle when I...

    That's very unsafe and inappropriate for her to blame you for your horses behavior. Her horse is barging around like a lunatic and she wants you to reprimand your horse?
