About Horse Boarding
It is time for people in the "horse business" to settle down and start thinking
about HORSE CARE and not so much about $$$ for each horse boarded. I have seen numerous examples of how mean
owners of stables, stable employees, and horse people can be to anyone they feel they want to pick on. I have looked at
various stable requirements for boarding horses on the internet and what I see is over zealous control language and
requirements and peoples' heads full of pride, superiority, greed... basicly huge egos.
Horses are animals who are at the mercy of humans. There are not enough nice barns for all of these poor animals.
There are not enough genuinely nice barn owners and managers who know how to properly board horses and take care
of them. Too often these people decide to pick on someone boarding their horse there and then that poor horse gets
abused or hurt in some way and then keeps getting moved and eventually put down or sent to a more terrible fate.
Stop and think about what you are doing to people and these poor animals. Be kind. Don't tell someone to leave with
their horse. Talk kindly, sympathetically and resolve the dilemma with a kind heart. Be kind to each other at barns.
Talk kindly about others. Say nothing if its about a rumor. Rumors are not fact. Walk away from that because it
destroys nice people with horses. Teach others willingly without asking for $$$. Help those who need help with a horse.
Think about what you are doing. Be kind.
Help people board their horses comfortably.
Don't listen to rumors.
You are not a unique, special or superior human just because you jump a horse in shows.
Horses are living beings with big hearts, horse thoughts and feelings.
Make it a pleasant place for all horses and their owners.
If you promise to do certain things for the boarded horses, then do what you promise.
You are getting paid to take care of horses.
You are getting paid to do what you promise to do.
Do what you are supposed to do for the horses and their owners.
Do the right thing.
Be honest and good to the horses and to the owners who board at your stable.
