To me $700+ sounds very over-priced. Here in MD you can find very nice full board facility for much less. Heck, my trainer charges $450/full board and she has 3 rings (2 dressage, one jumping) + indoor with mirrors. So personally I'd look for cheaper place, but it's just me.

It sounds to me like you're letting a fellow boarder dictate what you do. Why does this person have SO much power? That's rather bizarre in and of itself. You need to leave personalities out and do what's best for your horse and be at the barn where you'll both be happiest together. I don't quite understand why this other boarder can influence your decision to leave one barn and go to another. Isn't there any means for conflict resolution at your barn? Maybe I'm just not understanding the whole scenario. Are you looking for reasons to leave and move your horse? That's O.K. But you really don't any reason other than that it's your choice and it's something you want to do! Changing barns is VERY difficult and I had an entire thread on that recently. It calls on our very best and sharpest "people" skills. It tests us and forces us to come to terms with what's really important to us. Boy do I know!!! Good luck to you, but hope you just proceed with what feels right to you.

I think you have it all wrong. I was moving for me and my horse and what was in best interest of him both me, not because of the other boarder. I have since confronted her about what she said and we haven't really resolved it but hoping since I am staying we'll both either #1 go our own way or #2 resolve it like human beings. There's a lot of reasoning why I wanted to move and until I find the right situation for me and my horse that's when it'll happen. But, yes there was a lot of reasoning besides the other boarder.

UPDATE:
I was at work and my boss fired me. His complaint was that he was getting complaints from someone else. I told him that it was no harm, no foul and I didn't even want to know what the complaint was and I was going to collect what he owed me for my time and I was leaving. It is what it is so my horse will stay at this barn until I can find the right place for him

Is this the job you were hired, fired, then re-hired?

No dressage this is not the job that I was hired, fired and than re-hired. That's the bar and I am still there, making my money and going strong.
