If you’re a horse owner who stables their horse at a public barn, you know there’s always that one person: and I don’t even need to say who that one is. So below are some things NOT to do at the barn, so you’re not one of those people.
- Don’t be Mr / Ms. Richest
A common pet peeve of all horse owners is that one person at the barn who has a lot of money to splurge, but the worst part is: he/she goes on bragging about it.
- Don’t be Mr / Ms. Know it all
Sure, you may know a lot, but you certainly don’t know EVERYTHING. Others do know more than you know, just saying.
- Grooms are human beings too, in case you didn’t know.
So STOP treating them like a piece of… I needn’t say any further.
- Rider’s pay the instructor for classes, not you.
So let the instructor do their job unless they ask you for help, which I’m sure is never, ever going to happen. Don’t go on being the instructor that everyone is plain fed up of. Just let a professional instructor do their job, please.
- Don’t be that annoying music man.
You love to listen to music. Nothing wrong with that. But you play it at such a loud volume that it can be heard on the other side of the barn. Not everybody loves the music that you do, just saying. Besides, how do your ears even cope with such a loud volume?
I think that’s all what I have to say. This post is not intended as an offense to anyone.
But yeah, with that, see you all next time!
