I know there have been similar topics discussed over the years but just wondering if any of you have boarded at stable that did not agree, or did not see your point of view relating to certain precautions/measures/schedules you wanted for your horse's care.
What do you think any barn owner should be able to provide care wise, and what is most important to you as a boarder?
Perhaps, a take from a barn owner would be interesting as well!
Have you made agreements, signed contracts, visited said stable, moved the horse, then noticed a gradual decline in the services that were originally discussed/provided?
If you asked for a certain service and continuously failed to receive it, how would you proceed? How many “strikes” would you allow a person to have when it came to breaking rules that you as an owner would like to see followed with your horse.
Have you had to leave a facility because they were not pleasing you for whatever reason? If so, did you try to make it work with the stable before or did give notice and find those services elsewhere.
What do you feel the differences between full board, pasture board, and self board should include (I realize this is subject to differences from one barn to the next)
And finally... if you paid $250.00 + grain/supplements per month what would you expect to receive service wise (again, subject to location and facility)
Very eager for everyones takes, views, concerns, and advice.
