I have my horse at a small private barn that only has a fairly small covered arena to ride in. Before a new boarder moved in, most afternoons I would be there by myself and could set jumps and do my schooling in peace. However, this new boarder, while a very nice person is a barrel racer and is friends with a couple of other barrel racers at the barn. And, they are now riding in the afternoon at the same time I’m there and have set barrels in the arena, and basically take it over to practice their runs. As I said it’s a small arena and more than two people at a time, while doable, would be pretty crowded. I didn’t even ride yesterday because there were three people out there trying to avoid crashing into each other.
So, since I’m a paying customer just like they are, should this be something to bring up to the BO? I can’t come at a later time because I have two horses at home that need my attention in the evening. I get that this new boarder works and is probably coming after work and is just bad luck it happens to be when I arrive. I really don’t know how this would work out if we all want to ride at the same time. This is more of a “get it off my chest.” Not really a vent because I’m in a quandary and not sure what my next move would be.
