The sign does not cover this type of situation.
We have that rule too. It has to be in writing if the owner is not present while another boarder is handling the horse. It has nothing to do with being paranoid. It has to do with liability and accountability. Say you give your friend a verbal ok to ride your horse. Next week, you are on the outs for whatever reason. Suddenly the BO is one of those awful people who lets anyone ride any horse in the barn.
