Up until the last few years I have always kept my two horses on the family farm. When I moved a found a very nice local farm with a small ammount of liverys all which were very nice and I get on with really well. The owners of the farm have a daughter who has ridden all her life but has no people skills and is very aggresive towards us unless she wants something from you. She has a bad habit of coming up when you least expect it and having a go. I am quite a softy really and dont get the brunt of it most of the time but this morning copped for it big time she had a right go about someone else and because I dont do having a go at other folk it seemed to get her even more angery and I am afraid to say reduced me to tears. I now feel very down about it and to be honest her attitude is spoiling what would otherwise be a nice place to be. My crime by the way was just to say I would rather not talk about someone when they were not there to defend them selves which is all I said. I am of the older generation and going through a 40 something which at the moment means I can cry for England at the drop of a hat, I dont know how to deal with this because she will seek you out if she has something to say so trying to avoid her is quite hard, any tips from you experiance been on livery yards all your life type gang.
