    Kyle Carter made it look like an easy walk-over, but the next two - not so much. Good, it shouldn't seem to be too easy! :)

    No one has yet come up with an explanation that I personally can understand as to why the name "eventing" is a good one.

    "Equestrian triathlon" is a BIG improvement on the sport name. As far as...

    That's true, of course. A BO/BM can manage situations in a way that will work well for reasonable people. Those people who are not so reasonable - well, time for Plan B. Maybe Plan C (for...

    In fact, their expectations could be even further above what he is able to do, if they want to show their horses. It depends on what facilities they have if he has to be retired to pasture, and their...

    It would seem the current status is: You are the official or the de-facto Barn Manager. You have an employee who was probably not properly selected for skills and attitude, not properly interviewed...

    That's your answer.




    There is only one standard, and that is the barn standard. Workers either adapt or find employment elsewhere.

    That said ... have you tried calmers? Other than the ace you mentioned - I mean as a regular supplement or long-lasting med. In mega-doses. Natural supplements, or injectable reserpine, or the others...

    If he moves on, no matter where or who, you need assurance that he has the option of a pasture home for life, or euthanasia. Just because it is a 'breed home' does not mean that person isn't going to...

    No, you are not over-reacting - but be careful not to overstep your own role.

    Unless you are named as her supervisor/BM by whoever is boss of both of you, you should not manage your co-worker...

    It sounds like what is really missing is a common agreement on what is expected of horses boarded at that barn, and what is expected of staff. As has been mentioned, no one is on the same page.
