    Having worked with world-class fitters and saddlers, I can say that the behavior of Ms. Amanda is far less than professional. Far, far less than professional. I am fairly certain the college students...

    Absolutely don't feel bad! Around here properties and ranches will refuse entrance to (or kick out) ENTIRE BARNS if they have a bad reputation/seem like they're going to be trouble. Much better to...

    I really have no problem with them, if they follow barn rules and are polite/respectful. I am at a large(ish) barn, so it's just like having another boarder around.

    As someone who cleans tack for a show barn, I will say that when I am taking apart and cleaning loads of bridles before a show,
    1) Regular bridles are easy (barring that they don't have gags,...

    Besides the glaring error regarding Queen Elizabeth, I find it kindof awesome that the perfect horses were given to the ladies! Heck, when they described the ideal ladies' horse, I was like, "Wait,...

    They can hide un-clipped ears, protect clipped (or unclipped) ears from bugs, hold earplugs in, and muffle sounds (for horses who don't wear earplugs).
