    I was all set to say stay where you are and trailer to the trainer for lessons, but with your updated/clarified information, I now think you should move your horse with the trainer and see how it...

    Yeah, I kind of know what you mean. Although she has been riding long enough at this point that I would think she would have some appreciation for how much she still doesn't know (I sure as heck do...

    Meh, I don't really care what she does or doesn't know about my history. I'm from the area, so most people that have been in horses long enough do know me from "back in the day." Since she wasn't...

    Well, actually, attempting to ignore it wasn't working. So I'm shutting it down from now on. I'm pretty comfortable with this new approach, especially after having discussed it a bit here. Part of...

    She says things more in a "general announcement" kind of way. Like, "So and so is going to ride in the INDOOR, but the REST of us are going to ride outside."

    No one engages it. Most of what she...

    Occasionally someone will mention something she said, but believe it or not, she frequently says things to others within my earshot. I think that is part of the fun for her.

    I am also not a fan of the word bullying, and really never use it. It never would have occurred to me to that this woman is a bully until someone else said it. But you know what? It fits. She's...

    While I can't say I've done any of that, I did show in the 3'6" junior hunters and eq when I was younger, and I rode all of my former trainer's sales horses (including breaking some babies), plus...

    LOL, I'd really rather not explain, but no, it's definitely NOT the BO. The BO is actually awesome, which is a big part of why I'm overall happy here and definitely have no intentions of moving!

    No, the diplomas for the other UW schools are school specific. They are separate schools entirely. My Green Bay diploma says University of Wisconsin - Green Bay. I think. I actually could not...

    I would try Vaseline. It works to get it off of people skin and horse skin, so may work on fabric. Or make it worse...but I really feel you have nothing to lose at this point.

    Yes! I was just there yesterday, and it was 67 and sunny!

    University of Wisconsin is a GREAT school. My law degree is from there, and my undergrad is from UW-Green Bay (which is just an okay school). I got into 9 out of the 10 law schools I applied to. I...

    I'm not terribly worried about fallout. I mostly just feel stupid. And yes, she was sitting next to my (microphoned - I was wearing headphones) instructor making comments. It's true that she was...

    Ha, I'm a corporate restructuring/bankruptcy attorney, actually. All things considered, it is a really non-emotional legal practice.
