Editor’s Note: Horse Illustrated is introducing a new column for 2015. Stable Advice is a place for our readers to offer their advice on some of those uniquely equestrian problems. These aren’t the questions that you’d normally ask your vet or trainer. These are questions about horse life, like dealing with interpersonal struggles at the barn, juggling horse commitments and “real world” obligations, and generally navigating the challenges of living in the 21st-century horse world. Think of this as a place to share advice with a group of your best equestrian friends.
This month’s Stable Advice question:
I recently bought a horse and keep her at a boarding stable. The stable owner is very experienced and knowledgeable, but I don’t always agree with how she does things. For example, I think she’s feeding my horse way too much grain. How can I approach her with this and other concerns when I’m much younger and less experienced with horses than she is?
