    ^^^This exactly!!

    Sounds like there is something seriously wrong with this boy and the way he is wired. He needs professional help before he seriously hurts someone.

    If I were looking for a kids horse or safe trail/lesson horse - sure. But when you're looking for a horse for an adult to advance on, I would hope that there would be better training that being able...

    So I've been shopping for a horse for an adult student and finding some pretty cute ones but why do people think it's a big selling point to stand on the freaking horse??

    OP, I went through this with my now 28yo boy. He suffered a stifle injury about five years ago that ended our "active" riding days together. I got him to the point where I could take him out on...

    Sorry - but no you don't need to know anything about my business or how it's run. The eleven boarders who trust me with the care of their horses are all that matter to me.

    :rolleyes:

    Thank you!!

    Can I tell you the times that I have slept in the barn to make sure a horse is comfortable through the night or gets round the clock care? I don't get paid for it and I don't charge...

    So you assume that I don't have this in writing in my contract, correct? My boarding contract was drawn up by an equine attorney; horse owner and former co-boarder. As I have stated, all of this is...

    I have no idea why you are so angry but I'm truly sorry for your negative experiences but there's not need to be snarky. Clearly you would not be a good fit for our facility and for good reason. So...

    Yes, we are extremely lucky and have NBC within 20mins from us. One vet; all records in one place with one office to deal with; one practice who knows me, my care, my boarders & their...

    Not so simple. Like I said - they have no history or relationship with this owner/horse. My vets are on call and 10mins away. If you don't like it that way - don't board with me....simple. Oh...

    Wow....just....wow!!

    So, I'm supposed to have 11 vets numbers on speed dial, with back up numbers and to remember who has what vet, in the case of an emergency? And when said vet is out of...

    I boarded my two horses at the barn that I'm the BO at now. Prior BO wanted to get out of the business and we decided to take it over (we have a 10yr rental agreement with the property owner). Two...

    A valid point! I can only speak from my boarders since they have all been with me for years (the newest being 1yr).

    3 - relocated from out of state
    2 - I inherited from the prior BO who used...

    Well, in my case, I could have potentially 11 different vets and 11 different farriers coming and going at all different times etc. No thank you! I arrange for the shots, the dentist, farrier,...

    I maintain that my boarders use my vet and my farrier and disclose this prior to coming (and stated on my website). The reason is the same as others have posted and it works out well. My boarders...

    I think what Lady E is getting at is finding the "right fit" for both parties. I run a boarding barn with 11 boarders with a total of 15 horses between them; all adult, pleasure riders that do...
