Add to that the sheer numbers of non-horse-savvy extended family members and friends that tag along for the lessons, and it gets to be too much sometimes.
And CHS, your name-calling is really rude and unnecessary. Goody for you that the BO brings all the kids. The boss gets to bring his dog to the office and leave whenever he wants. I'm fine with that. But boarders are customers. We pay for the use of the facility. While I haven't heard tell of anyone here going around bitching at the little kids, I am paying for the use of that space. Little Cody and Travis who come along with Brittny for their weekly lesson are not, and I can crab about that on a BB if I want to. I am not discouraging kids from riding by ranting on COTH.
