    I think this has a lot to do with it. I just think parents are different today.While, sure some people only have enough money for a lesson a week, i dont see that as the main problem at our barn.

    I think it depends on your situation. If for instance you wanted to pay off some debt or even save some money, and your fit, then i would do it. Put a time limit on it in your own mind and for...

    Geesh, give the poor lady a break. Its not like the woman has lost her job. Its a temporary set back. Which she HAS been rectifying with payments. The barn owner is being very unreasonable, as she...

    I'm with you on this. When the OP said to PO, hey i am bringing my trailer to pick up the pony. PO could very well have said "NO" we will talk about things when you get here.

    I agree with this. Take your invoice to the BM and tell her if she doesnt find your blankets than you are going up the food chain.
    I would not do this by text, it needs to be done in person. If they...

    So what was in the needle? I to would like to know what has that kind of effect in that short of time?
    I dont agree with drugging, but there are occasions when it is necessary. (like hand walking...

    Simki, how cold does it get in MN. My first thought looking at the inside of the barn is, its not insulated. If it gets really cold there, than your water is going to freeze. Before doing the...

    This, MYOB! Just because a horse reared doesn't make it a bad horse. We have no idea under what circumstances this horse reacted this way. How do we know the rider wasn't at fault.
    If she is your...

    Or with all the traffic, she could become a little more calm.
    After awhile she will get used to it, and it actually could be really good for her.
    Tell the BO that if she doesn't settle in a day or...

    There is nothing worse than sitting at a table in awkward silence. I say ask away. A good conversationalist is a dream at a table. Small talk, with a few questions added in, perfect. I am sure...

    Ha, maybe you could ask him if he could get involved with some of the awful horse movies they make. I am sure he could lend his expertise in many ways.:D

    I worked with a lady quite a few years ago that was attacked by their family mal. This lady was really tiny, think 5 foot tops and 97 pounds. She took a week off of work and when she came back we...

    No body makes anyone do anything they don't want to do. The mother bought the saddle, period. She could have just as well said NO. SHE chose not to!

    I dont think there was anything really wrong with the OP's e-mail. I understand the frustration of getting something that is NOT what was seen at the horse show.

    I agree. Seems to me if the parents didn't like it they would leave. We also
    dont know how much those lessons actually are. It may be a case of fun pony time for cheap.
    It takes all kinds to make...

    However, what is it that you expect to pay a an entry level job. You make it sound like they should be getting 20.00 per hour. ANY entry level, non skilled job pays minimum wage, period. Lots of...

    Lymphangitis is a very serious infection. Our horse spent three weeks at a hospital hooked up to IV anti-biotics, to get on top of this. Not only that, even if you do get them better they will be...

    I agree. I don't know how many times i have gone to the barn, and found the tack room door wide open, and the heat turned up to max. People can be careless and BO's should not foot that bill.
