I wrote an opinion piece on Tuesday that was pretty well received. But it's been brought to my attention that I need to clarify something. I board in the wintertime at a pretty wonderful facility. The care there is incredible. I've said this over and over. I mentioned that I board someplace where work ethic is often commented on, but I want to be clear where I board, the workers are compensated more than fairly and appreciated. My post was in no way directed at my own current experience, but what I've seen and experienced throughout my time as a horse owner and boarder. And I've seen a lot. I've been riding, competing, and caring for horses for over 30 years.
While my barn owner and I may have lots of differing opinions, that doesn't make either of us wrong or doing a bad job. Everyone does things their own way and has their own expectations. As long as the humans and horses are all well cared for, at the end of the day, that's all that matters.
This blog space is mine, for me to share my thoughts and feelings. Sometimes people might not agree with what I have to say. And that's okay. But these experiences are mine, and if you think I've said something that might be harmful to someone else, please bring it to my attention yourself and I will be happy to clarify. Both right to you, and also here so nobody feels attacked. My intentions are never to attack anyone or hurt their business.
