Barn rules?

Just wondering, what are some of the rules you have around your barn. Some examples are: the water bucket isn't clean enough if you wouldn't drink out of it. And, the stall should be clean enough that you would walk on it barefoot. I'm making a "barn rules" sighn. Any suggestions for rules would be greatly appreciated

One of my rules would be NO BARE FEET OR SANDALS IN BARN AREA.

Take pride in your stall as it reflects on us all.

At my old barn I believe we had a 'no throwing rocks' rule on the rules sheet tacked up in the tack shed.


The other rules were pretty run of the mill and forgettable, such as: keep gates closed.

Same applies to another person's stuff! If you don't own it, then don't mess with it! Clean up after your horse, pick up and put away your belongings, ride with a helmet, hours of operation, rules regarding dogs, any of those that may apply to you. I'd suggest looking up rules that other stables have and basing your list on some of their rules.

Ok I think I have all of my "serous" rules. What about some funny rules. For example one I think I'm going to put on the sighn is what happens in the barn, stays in the barn. Thankyou for all of the rules :)

At our barn it's just my sister's horse and my horse and it's on our property so there aren't any rules aside from, "Don't be an idiot."

A few months ago we had a friend boarding their horse at our barn and the rules were basic for them. They were a free board as long as they kept with the terms of the agreement which were as follows.

- Lock all gates (which they violated)
- Feed horses at night (which they violated)
- Pay for your own feed (they were good on this one...mostly)
- Clean your own stall (they were...fair on this one)
- Pay your own vet bills (which they violated)
- Don't touch horses that aren't yours without asking (this one they listened to)
- Use common sense (this one, if you don't count the other rules applying, they were good at lol)

We have the Michigan Equine Law posted on the gate to our pasture and a big sign that says, "RIDE AT YOUR OWN RISK" posted on the entrance to the barn itself.

Oh, and their horse is no longer at our barn for hopefully obvious reasons. My mother told them they needed to find another place to keep their horse because their lack of attention was endangering our personal animals. Suffice to say there was a reason they had a free board and the animal has since been sold.
