I would move if it was me. First off the fact that the stall is not being cleaned everyday is not ok. Second it's winter and you can save money by moving your horse home. If your horse is home then you can take care of her the way you see fit. That will buy you some time to find a new trainer. A lot of times you can haul in and take lessons from a trainer without the horse boarding there. The blanket issue is something that you probably have to provide yourself. I have never known a barn to provide blankets for people. It also kinda sounds like your horse needs a little bit of a better shelter with the type of weather you have. You don't have to put up with a BO like that, especially since you have horse property!

And unless your wife is planning on doing some big time showing there is no need to be drilling the horse every day, especially as young as she is.

That's the lamest excuse I've ever heard: "The horses like the manure and it keeps them warm." It sounds to me like he's just LAZY. This is not true and your horse could end up getting thrush/hoof infections/re-infestations of worms. And she should get colic because no horse wants to drink icy water and if she doesn't drink enough, an impaction can develop. You should try to see if there's a good barn somewhere else and board her there. Where I live, $250 is a fortune to pay for boarding and when I used to board, I paid $175 a month and had the stalls mucked/the horse fed and watered/ and meds administered if necessary. You should get her out of there ASAP.

John 14:6 - Jesus said unto him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me."

Yeah, we took her out within a week. Brought her home. I have a stall 3 acres etc. That guy was just wasting our money. First thing the horse did though when she got home was run as fast as she could and jump the fence into the next yard. I was like what the heck. But I guess she was just excited. I brought her back over.
