Reasons for asking a boarder to leave

This past year we had to demand a young person who had rented a some outside stalls from us on a self-service situation to leave our farm due to her maltreatment of her animals. She did not feed, water, exercise, turn-out or provide medical and farrier on a regular basis.
A few years ago I also had to ask a boarder to leave because her mother would come in her high heels and skimpy clothes (were talking lingerie sometimes and once she wore red higheel shoes with feathers on them) to bring her horse in from the park and knew nothing managing a group of horses all wanting to come in together. I was a dangerous situation and luckily we had no injuries.
We asked another to leave because she would leave her kids (8-12) here all day with no food and after 2 hours they were done with their riding and we became unwilling babysitters. That resulted in our no-kids policy which has worked out great for us and our boarders.
I am curious about other BO's reasons for asking Boarders to vacate.

My family has ran a horse boarding business for the past ten years. My best advice to you is get a contract if you do not already have one, and make all boarders follow by it. Give them a list of rules and have them initial it saying that they have read it over and understand what you are asking of them. If they become an issue, where they are harming themselves or other boarders that should be grounds for immediate contract termination. Remember, all boarders are a liability to you and need to be kept in check when they get out of line.

I do not usually board to people...we bought an old run down buffalo farm and basicly rebuilt it. There was a house on it but the house was very small and pretty crappy. We gutted it and made it liveable for when we had guest come and stay. Well a friend of mine needed a place to stay...with her horse and dog! well we never asked for rent or board of the horse. Just asked for her to feed her own horse with her own hay and keep him healthy and then clean all of our stalls and turn outs on a daily bassis to pay for her living with us and her horse beign there. She actually bought this horse off of us about 3 years ago and have been barrel racing with him and doing very well but he was a horse that needed to be rode every day to keep in shape. Well she was good for a good month or two. Then she basicly never was home. Her dog was always eating out dogs food. Her horse wasnt getting fed so i was feeding him every day. The pens werent getting cleaned. The horse eventually wasnt even getting rode. Not even for a trail ride up the mountain or for a quick trip around the hay i started riding him because i did not want to see such a great animal go to waste. Finally my mom asked her to leave. She went missing and left her horse at our place for about 3 months. I continued riding him every day and actually fell in love with him again! my mom ended up getting a hold of her and telling her to come get her dog! but we wanted to buy the gelding back. My mom still owns him and loves that horse! One friendship lost...but a great horse gained i guess.

In my opinion your mom was way to nice. After two months you should have legally had a lien on that horse making him legally yours. We had something similar happen with a horse. We obtained the horse, and sold it for the amount owed in board. Good for your mom though that she is happy with her horse.
