    There aren't to many rules, just the typical things you would see.

    Mandatory helmets under the age of 18
    Minors have to be with an adult
    No jumping without a trainer around (tho depending on how close you are with the barn owner, there are variations to that rule ;)
    Whatever was off when you came in needs to be turned off when you leave.

    mainly the rules are for the kids who come up during the day to ride, so most does not include me.

    The rules for them consist of:
    (1) barn hours are from 9 am - 5 pm...you can't come earlier or stay later
    (2) helmets MUST be worn at all times if mounted
    (3) cannot ride a horse that they haven't ridden for lessons (so a beginner can't ride a crazy green horse)
    (4) you MUST clean up after yourself
    (5) if Ann (a lady who helps train the horses) come to ride you MUST leave the upper barn, and let her have her riding time in peave
    (6) you cannot ride any of the boarder's horses unless you have their permission
    (7) you can only use the barn owner's tack and equiptment

    And for me, really only 4 and 6 apply to me. I'm over 18 so legally I can ride without a helmet, and the BO is okay with me not using it (though I always do use a helmet)...I've ridden all of the BO's horses for lessons so I'm safe there haha....I've ridden with Ann lots of times and she hasn't complained yet so she'll live haha...and I have my own tack so I use my own saddle and briddle

    Lets see...
    I don't know the hours, but if you want to come after the sunsets, call them in advance so they know you are coming. (by now though, they know our cars)
    Halters must be left on
    No running, screaming, yelling around horses
    No cell phones (even though everyone uses them)
    Clean up after you and your horse
    No lunging or loose horses in the indoor
    Call them if you need the vet or any other one out (except the farrier because he comes on a weekly basis)
    No dogs
    No smoking
    You cannot wash a horse between 4-6 pm

    Umm i'm sure there's more, but i've forgotten

    im guessing because the ring tones could spook the horse? I'm not exactly sure, but everyone still uses them.

    @ my barn they have like 2 dogs, they are used to being around the horses & they are soo sweet. But I doubt any other dogs are allowed.

    -Helmets are to be worn when riding, & usually when grooming. (although some people don't wear them lol)
    -Put away grooming supplies after you've used them.
    -If your horse needs to see the Farrier, put it on the Farrier list. (it's an easier way to do things lol)
    -Cellphones should be on silent.
    -Clean up if your horse goes to the bathroom.
    -You can't go to the barn after 11PM. Unless you call or its an emergency or something serious, I think. Morning hours are like 6AM I think.
    -No smoking.
    -If fly masks are on the horse (like for lesson horses) before you tack up, take them off, then put them on when you turn the horse out. (that doesn't apply to boarders).
    -You can't ride when there are lessons, you have to use one of the other rings/riding fields (we have like 3-4).
    -No running, screaming, etc or anything that could really spook the horses.
    -If lesson horses are sweaty after riding (like in the spring/summertime), hose them off.
    -No jumping in the XC field without a trainer/supervisor.
    -If hacking out, you can never go by yourself.
    -Lights off when you arrive, lights off when you leave.

    Ahh I think that's it but there's probably some I missed lol.

    Hahaha this isnt a rule or nothing, but the gals and guys drink beers while they're hanging out with the horsies lol. Im sure no one is stupid enough to ride drunk, but just a kick back and relax kind of thing

    Foal
    We don't really have a lot of rules at our stables... And I certainly couldn't board in a stable with restricted hours etc., as I sometimes go for a ride after night shift, which can be between 5 am and 7am, or after late shift (between 8pm and 10pm), especially in the summer, when it's too warm and there are too many flies and other bugs around during the day.

    Our rules:
    - tidy up behind you
    - remove horse poo from the arenas after riding
    - Kids under 18 have to bring a written permission of their parents if they want to ride without a helmet
    - dogs are only allowed to be taken off the lead when they behave

    That's it. But we have some more things, which you don't have to do but which our BO would appreciate if you do:

    - When horses are outside don't leave their halters on (safety reasons)
    - When you go for a hack take a mobile phone and let someone know on how long you plan to be gone (safety reasons)
    - If you recognize something being wrong with a horse, call the owner/BO/Vet (for this case we have a list with the horses name, owners phone number and it's Vet/farrier)
