Why oh why do people – well educated supposedly open-minded people – get so stuck in their ways?
Ten to fifteen years ago, if you had built a bright airy riding arena with stalls, 3x3m opening onto a wide gangway, reactions would have been “Wow! Fantastic.” Today, we realize that this is no longer acceptable. We also realize that the cost of rebuilding a stable to the latest standards is probably prohibitive – so we have a choice: we can look at all the possibilities available to us to improve the welfare of our horses, or we can stick our heads in the sand and say ” we’ve always done it this way and we are not going to change…”

Sounds familiar?
