    You have to be an advocate for your animal, because in the end - you are paying the expenses.

    Your trainer's personal life and any issues that spill out of that, is not your responsibility and it...

    An acquaintance had his hip done and actively fox hunts. Mounting is his only problem...as is legging up.
  3. Yes, and taken a bit too personally I surmise....

    Yes, and taken a bit too personally I surmise. And repeated as well with others.

    But again, I posted for two-fold...to vent and provide a chuckle now that Karma-wise, I'm in a position to exhibit...

    You do have a valid point. However, in this instance I am referring to adults that purposely menace others children while the minor is working.

    That to me goes a bit far.
  5. No, I'd never escalate the situation. It would...

    No, I'd never escalate the situation. It would be ludicrous and juvenile. Thinking of such was a bit of juvenile fun, however.

    Again, in the social circles we travel in these personalities don't...

    No, actually I will refuse to change my shopping habits. I shopped there when this kid was of diaper-wearing age, and I will continue to shop there well into my diaper-wearing age. :D

    And perhaps it's a Karmic return?

    Background - When I moved my daughter and horse, this kid's mother shot me a NastyGram via e-mail. Totally inappropriate in normal social circles my husband and...

    I'm gonna say you have English in you somewhere...awful legs! :D I envy those with a clearly defined Achilles tendon..you know, they can wear ankle bracelets or nice strappy shoes...not me :no:

    Can't wear zippers, in ANY brand. I have the dreaded Calfankles and the zipper does not pull up over my ankle. Did I say in ANY BRAND?

    Then you will need to chat with your BO and the farrier and ask what the protocol is. They may have a certain working relationship in place.

    I am only making an assumption here, but with most...

    I own a horse similar to this and rode with a trainer similar to this. This is nonsense. Either the trainer gets on this horse and tunes him up, or removes this horse from the lesson program.

    I own a cribber. My thought is your filly is an investment, so I would pass on her and the "vice" as you really don't know how it may or may not progress. Unless you have your own property, you may...

    The price (in the case) is your sanity and happiness, hence it is not a fabulous place. If you find yourself having to gird yourself for battle when you come tooling up the barn driveway...stop...

    I don't get it. If she is very knowledgeable in many areas, why are YOU her ONLY client? :confused:

    And therein lies the rub....in the states, there is no Riding Establishments License.

    No. All you need is one nasty stirrup rub to peel the skin off the inside of your calf. Plus the inside top edge could interfere with your leg placement, catch on the leather and toss you off...

    Interesting thread, as my friends and I were just discussing the economy, having kids in college, jobs being "rightsized", etc. We were pondering the cost of so many things these days.

    Uh Oh. Coming from the Hunters, I've seen this teen drama play out many times. As a former Hunter Princess I will guess that this girl is into the latest fashions. Ribbons and winning "hardware"...
