Most Important Feature

As far as your training facility is concerned (for those who don't have a horse at home), when looking for a training facility what is the most important factor to you? do no include "turn out time" as it is a given.

what they are being fed and everything that has to do with the stall, including having a run, but food for me is the biggest one....

for me its knowledge about Hypp. I'd only bring my horse to place where the people are familiar with that.

Next to the turn outs/stalls being in good shape I'd say arenas. (nice footing, good size, etc)

Quality of the feed, cleanliness of the pastures/barn/fence and a competent BO.

Its my horses home above and beyond anything else, so I want to make sure they are safe, happy and healthy there.

HIgh quality people to run the place.

If the staff and the owner are knowledgable, most of the other things will be in order as well.
