    Question New stable - looking for advise

    I am planning on being ready to board horses in the spring. I will start mainly with pasture board and ease into stall board as I go. I have one stall built and will build more in the winter. I have the main paddock and fences started and will build more in the spring.

    There is a lot of room to ride and I think that will be the main draw to my farm. If all goes well an arena will be built in a year or so. Sooner if there is a demand for it.

    So, what advise would you give to someone just starting out in the boarding business?

    Thanks in advance,

    Make sure you have very clear boarding contracts and I believe probably good insurance.
    Especially the contracts though. They can never bee too thorough. Throw in a release of Liability. Make sure what is accepted and what is not accepted is outline.

    Do you know a good resourse to create them. I am guessing that I will need to involve an attorney eventually, but I have not found one yet that is honest and I have a tough time dealing with people that are not honest with me when it comes to something like this.

    Eagle - send me an email and I'll send you a copy of mine to look over and add to.. I can also send you my Liability Waiver(everyone who steps foot on my property has to sign one). In Texas, we must have our assumption of risk signs posted and on our forms so I would look at your states law on that. I also have a set of rules the contract holder has to initial.

    FYI, my arena isn't done yet and it turned off alot of boarders. I'm not sure how much land you have to ride on... and pasture boarders tend to not come around as much so it may not be a big issue for you but it was for me... :o)
