    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 :)
    Well... if you move out here, you can board with me... I just want someone to trail ride with me. Sniff... snert... oh, and to watch the "kids" when I go out of town...

    OK... SOMEWHERE I SAW A NO CELL PHONE RULE...

    I am feeling full of myself today, my posts are quite snippy but OMIGOSH CAN WE SAY WHAT A STUPID DUMB DUMB DUMB RULE!
    What if you go on trail and fall off and have no cell phone to call for help? What if you are in the barn and someone gets hurt? You have to find a land line? What if it's far far away?

    And SPOOK THE HORSE??? What kind of freak horses do you people have? If a cell phone spooks them! OMIGOSH! I am so totally against riding in total silence and perfect conditions... YIKES...

    Ok done now, please don't hit me too hard... I'm fragile... I break...

    My barn is pretty laid back

    1) clean up after yourself
    2) put your tack away when your done
    3) if you are the last to leave shut off lights, close down the barn
    4) no dogs being tied up in the barn. I can bring my dog, but I never bring him if I am going to be riding.
    5) must wear a helmet if your under 18

    That's about it

    Well as for riding time, theres always someoen there 24hrs. Theres no set time, but I don't think I would going riding later than 8 pm, if you get what im saying.

    .our horses always have to have all four legs wraped

    . We need to spend a good time grooming them. If they arent clean enough sometimes we have to go back and get everything off of them. They need to look very nice before they go into the ring.

    .Need to show respect for your parents, ESPECIALLY if they are helping you.

    . Not only does your horse but we have to look nice when we ride too. Like tucking in loose shirts, hair up nice and neat, boots polish, no flashy reinstones or stripes on your helmet, and belts.

    . Say thank you!!!

    And that's it!!

    ^^^ is this for a horse you own, or for a lesson barn?

    If I had to "look nice" while riding I think I would throw a fit!


    Farmpony - thanks for the offer! :)

    We have no time rule at my barn
    You could come at 3 am and nobody would care
    But if you forgot to turn off the arena lights you're in heaps of trouble! Lol
    The manger's daughter (also one of the trainers) lives in a cabin next to the barn and the owner built a house next to hers to stay in when she's in town. So there's people around all the time.
    There's like 841829384812+ no smoking signs in the barn, but just about everybody smokes in and around the barn, except for me and a worker younger than me.
    Anyone who boards their horse at the barn, the workers, ANYONE who comes to ride MUST sign a waiver. So if they fall off a horse, get kicked, stepped on, w/e they can't sue the barn.
    That's about it I think...
    We don't really have any rules set in stone, except the waiver one

    We have quite a few rules:

    1. Ride at your own risk.
    2. All riders under 18 must wear a helmet when mounted.
    3. No smoking within ?ft of the barn.
    4. If you break it, fix it.
    5. You are responsible for any damage you or your horse makes.
    6. No outside friends allowed unless you have permission.
    7. If you use it and its not yours, put it back in the same or better condition.
    8. Turn off lights when leaving barn.

    Can't think of anything else, but I know we have more ...

    Since we moved barns, the rules are a lot better.

    Farmpony, at my old barn, they had a No Cell phone rule, and I agree it was dumb, for those exact reasons that you said.

    At my current barn, the rules are pretty simple
    Clean up after yourself
    Turn the water off if you use it
    Turns the lights off if you use them
    Keep all gates closed
    No smoking
    Clean up after your horse if they go in the arena

    And that's pretty much it.
