My Horse Forum
So for those of you who were helping me before obviously my letter didn't work now I am pressing charges but to cover myself I will be sending out a new letter with some revisions and need feedback. I do not know what else to do in this situation. I believe I've went above and beyond my responsibility but she seems to think she is above the law.... any help would be appreciated. The letter will be notarized and sent out tomorrow as a certified letter. I'm tired of the games.

I am writing you regarding your fence, your stallions and yourself. On November 13, 2016 your stallions got out of your pasture and were trespassing onto our property trying to tear through our fence. I couldn't reach you by phone and was forced to call the police department. I ran your stallions off of our fence multiple times to no avail. You came out that night and instead of moving them or fixing the fence you...
Anyone want me to look for a horse for them?
And I'm NOT buying anything.
No, really. I'm not.
Heard that at the barn a couple of days ago when a very fresh young horse dumped his rider and ran back to his stall.
Luckily the rider has more sense than to listen to the person who offered THAT helpful piece of advice but it really does make me cringe sometimes when I hear the stuff some people come out with.
Another one came from a woman who has not been out to do anything with her horse for almost a year. "We've been remodeling our house," she explained. "And I took a class so that's had me busy."
I wanted to say, "Yes, I understand - I just finished law school and I'm studying for the bar now" but didn't bother. Why have a horse? I don't get it.
What's the most jaw-dropping bit of "helpful advice" you've heard lately?
I thought it might be interesting to look at the Crazy Barn Owner from their perspective.
Boarder tied horse to stall grills instead of tie ring ( rules state clearly to only tie to tie rings). Horse pulls back pulling the stall grill out, panics injures itself needs stiches. Cost me $500+ to repair grill and the added bonus is I get to treat horse wounds 2X's a day and give antibiotic.
Boarder tied horse to arena rail and let horse dig pit in the arena subfloor and tear up the barrier material after paying $20,000 to have the arena floor done....again clearly stated in the rules.
Boarder tied horse to water hydrant, horse pulled back and pulling out hydrant and 4 feet of water line. Water fountain flooded barn and a $600 water bill and a $700 plumbing bill. While not tying to the water hydrant is not specifically stated in the rules..it does state not to tie to any thing but a tie ring.
5 AM feeding boarders horse did not drink enough or poop. Call all boarders...
