Hello! I'm here seeking horse riders point of view on a situation I'm dealing with....long story..... So I live in a fairly rural area on a pretty busy road. A woman has bought the house a few lots down from my house. She has cleared the land for pastures and built a pretty nice horse barn behind her house. A little while later she has 3 nice big horses hanging out there. I thought neat it would be cool to see the horses riding past now and then? I've always liked horses just never got the chance to be around them. So it's not long the woman is riding down past my house to get to a woods trail that goes out to the back of my land and also ties into many other trails. Like I says pretty busy road with inconsiderate drivers flying by. So I notice she is kinda favoring my lawn to stay outta the road. No problem! I get it,she doesn't want to get hit. And I don't want her to get hit either,cool. So I see her go by occasionally sometimes with someone riding the other horses. I always smile and wave they wave back. I never really talked to her tho. So a year or so goes buy and I think she decided to board other horses probably to help pay for the sweet barn she built. So now there's 10-12 nice looking big horses roaming around down there. Very pretty and healthy looking horses. So now there's a group of younger women that ride 4-5 of the horses just about every day down past my house to my trail. Granted they never asked to use the trail probably be cause they didn't know it was my trail. But again I'm fine with it. I think trails are great and I ride my 4 wheeler out there and I hate it when people close down the trails. So I started noticing alot of big poop piles around on my lawn and on my driveway where they hug my yard to not get hit. It's like as soon as the horss gets 1500 feet from the barn one of them always poops a big pile of poop right where they ride thru my yard. So I was out doing some yard work and I see this group of young women riding down to my trail so sure enough just like clock work the lead horse stops and takes another huge poop right on my lawn. The other girls are kinda laughing at horse doing his poo for some reason ? ok, so I go over to them as they start to ride off and I calmly ask if they wouldn't mind mabey coming back later and cleaning up that poop and the others adding up around my yard. I know not to make a scene when people are on horses as not to spook them. She tells me in a bitchy tone horses shit wherever they want and we will never clean up horse shit, Deal with it!! So I just said what ever and the girls rode down my trail. So I approached the woman that ownes the barn and asked her if she could have it taken care of please. She says yes no worries, I added I would leave a shovel and a wheel barrow out in the corner of my yard so they can just clean it up easily when they get done riding or whatever the next day or two. So a couple weeks go by horses still pooping like clock work almost everyday no cleaning it up at all. How is it even possible for a horse to poop in the same strech Everytime? Here's my delema I really don't want to gate my trail cause i hate when people close trails. And then they would have no trails and I don't mind them passing over my lawn to stay safe, I mean they have chopped up the lawn with their hoofs but whatever the mower goes over it fine still but it kinda sux when there's piles of poop that are taller than the grass. Doesn't do so well then....... If they could make it another 100 feet they could poop on the trail and that would be great. What do you horse riders think of this? What would you do if you were there? Im really trying not to ruin they're fun but it's getting old now. Thoughts comments and opinions please. I don't want to be the a hole neighbor either. Thanks for reading!
