I should have said revenue. I did not mean "the BO gets to pocket the board money" income, but rather that is the money that keep the horses fed and stalls bedded. Each horse's board pays for it's upkeep - it's the 'stables' income, not BOs.
Of course the BO will make their money off of lessons, resales, training, etc. That money does not have to go towards feeding a hungry horse like board does
