The front gate never closed (as in open 24/7 to boarders)
indoor is nice, outdoor is nice, access to trails is really nice.
Tack rooms that are well insulated and cleaned
Tidy spacious stalls to come inside and eat
Good fencing, no barbed wire.
BM on property
Good lighting throughout barn
Tidy shaving/feed area
Enough space for a turnout paddock, big fields for grazing in
No dangerous tying up places (as in if they exist, they need to be secure and not risk injury to my horse)
All hoses and spickets in good working order
Hay stored in an appropriate place
No barn machinery hanging around, stored away
Obstacles for jumping, calvaletti, mounting block, cones, etc.
Nice area for parking and for trailers
No loose dogs that cause trouble
Good draining around barn and arena
Salt block dish in each stall
Rubber mats so boarders and horses don't slip in the winter and spring
Gates that close and latch properly
NO SINK HOLES
I think that's all..just basic good maintenance with some luxuries and common sense care for horses.
