    Lol... its just things I learned after having an obnoxious border.
    One I forgot is... Vehicles only allowed in the parking area. No exceptions (except maybe for a Vet)
    She drove over irrigation lines. Parked on an area that had not been pack ed down from repairing the main water line. DUH..

    When I boarded one of the rules was to never leave the halter on your horse(s). He also posted copies of an article (from a newspaper) that showed a horse hanging from where it's halter was caught on a piece of farm machinery, in every barn. The horse in the pic was dead, it had broken it's neck struggling. That pic left a mark in my heart. We all understand that our horses were not exposed to anything that size, it was simply the fact that accidents happen.
    I've owned my own place for over 30 years. None of my horses ever wears a halter unless it is supervised. I get chills if I see a horse in a pasture wearing a halter.

    It seems that I have it pretty easy at the barn I board Dixie at, since Tracy is my best friend. We have very simple rules.

    - Clean your own stall and take pride in it!
    - You ride, you help clean. (This applies to the neighborhood girls that come over and get to ride with us every weekend.)
    - Put tack and supplies away before and after riding.
    - You break it, you buy it.
    - Clean water buckets every week or when they are dirty, as in you would not want to drink out of them.
    - Roll up the hose when you are done with it.
    - Do not leave garbage, cigarette butts, etc laying around.

    Our rules are pretty laid back and simple. We are all there to ride, enjoy ourselves and help one another. Drama is certainly not allowed and rarely ever happens, because we are all pretty laid back. If there is a problem, we voice it and get it handled before an ant hill turns into a mountain.

    With some of these rules, you need to consider how much you want to get involved with someone's riding... Like requiring a helmet. I dunno, that's a bit of a turnoff for me.

    ^Agreed. Some rules actually make me avoid the barn (ie. EVERY adult rider MUST wear a helmet, etc, etc).

    I have it lax! We basically have these rules:
    -make sure all horses in the field are safe and healthy, if one's not.... BRING IT UP TO THE BARN, or come and get someone
    -Don't touch others stuff without permission and if you do then make sure to put it back
    -Use COMMON SENSE

    Some funny ones are:
    Tidy up after you giddy up (clean up the barn aisle)
    -No drama
    -Want something special for your horse? Then go buy it yourself!
    -Check ALL water tanks/buckets during your stay and BEFORE you leave (people who don't follow this get yelled/screamed at by me AND my boss)
    -You get hurt that's your fault, your kid gets hurt, that's your fault, in fact if you come to us crying about how a horse hurt you then maybe you shouldn't be hanging out in a barn!

    Those are really all the rules I can think of haha.
