I'm moving in july and need to start checking out new barns to board. What should I be asking when I talk to people on the phone so I don't waste my time driving all the way out to these places? Posted via Mobile Device
Ask what they feed and how often, how much hay the horses get (some places limit it to X amount of flakes per day), what the turn out is like, what facilities they have, who the trainers/coaches are and if you can bring in your own, what happens if they can't reach you in an emergency, what the vaccination policies are, what the fencing is made of, what is included in the board (blanketing, stall cleaning, bedding, holding for farrier, bucket cleaning, etc.) and if there is a contract. It's important to have what is/isn't included written down and signed!
