The usual--

Clean up after your horse (everyone)
Always wear helmets unless you are over 18(everyone)
Idk-ive only been there for 2 day-umm im guessing no dogs unless they are on a leash

Another rule we have is to keep dogs on leashes. A great rule for safety of both horse, rides and the dogs.

Weanling ones barn has a non-smoking rule? That's weird.every barn I've been to strictly uses that rule.

Most barns I have been at did have the rule of no smoking but I think generally speaking it's a common sense-non written rule which is why it's probably not posted.

Well im just saying because it was a rule at my old barn but I mean...there are some stupid people out there. And some people don't have that common sense-like the dog thing! And besides it was a rule at my old barn as I've said but people still smoked! I am going to laugh when they get fired(instructor)

I don't really have any rules.....

But I abide by rules I have made up for myself like:

Clean up after yourself
Wear a helmet

No rules just helmet.

Umm I can go whenever I want -just call ahead when im coming.

If you ride a horse, you have to bathe it afterwards. (resposiblity for more than just riding the horse)

You have to wear boots

Its kinda wierd, but you can't say "i can't do it". My trainer will always respond "cant never could do nothing, now suck it up & try it again" & usually follows with "if you can do it once you can do it all day -iv seen you do it before"

Don't jacka** around -like take every second of riding seriously.

Ummm I think that's about it.

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 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
1 and 5 I don't like. I work a 40 hour week so I'd never be able to ride. That would totally suck! And 5, I don't agree with training in peace. I think training horses should be ridden among the noise and the commotion, how else will they learn to deal?

Teehee... just had to comment man... cus i'm mean like that....

Ok, here's MY barn rules... The barn is mine. MINE MINE MINE... Um... yeah... it gets lonely.... all by myself... I would LOVE to find ONE responsible person to board there. I would let them stay free just to have a riding partner... OR I'd let someone ride Beauty and Style just so that I had a riding partner... Do you know how hard it is to find RESPONSIBLE people that have EXPERIENCE???

Haha farmpony...I do know how hard it is!!

Actually, that's how I stumbled upon my current situation. Two ladies that I'd known at the old boarding barn bought property and two horses from Germany to go with it. They needed someone to feed on a daily basis and do a general "once over" - and turn the boys out.

These horses were (and still are) freaks! Weird scratches bumps, brusies and tummy aches, but i'm always there for them :)

Also glad to have free boarding for my two old farts :)
