I have 3 of my own horses and one boarder on my farm. Owner is 21 and i have known her for years.
We use the same trainer. Trainer comes to my farm as I have an indoor arena.
Its been 2 months now since boarder arrived. My lesson has been, thus far, before hers so i drag and set jumps. One time hers was before mine but since i was having a lesson too i set the jumps. She ended up canceling so we never talked about the issue of who sets jumps when.
My jumper is temporarily out of commission so i wont be having a lesson tomorrow, but she will. I will remove the poles ive been using for rehab with my horse and i will drag so she has a nice arena to work in.
Its worked out to her advantage thus far not having to set jumps and thats perfectly fine with me because ultimately im setting them for myself. As im not jumping at the moment i wouldnt be setting jumps tomorrow. I believe that if she wants to jump tomorrow then she could get here a few minutes early and set the jumps.
Before she moved in i made it very clear to her and her parents that this is my home and not a typical boarding facility. Things are casual and calm, safe and sane. They are good people and we are good people. I take excellent care of both her and her horse, but i think its ok to draw the line at setting up her jumps for her.
Trainer has been coming here for 5 years. I have always had the arena ready and have been mounted and walking to loosen up so when she arrives we are ready to work.
What say you?
