O.K. Here's my issue. I pay $800 a month for board. It includes all day turnout, blanketing, feeding twice a day. I work all day and only get to ride from 3:00 to 5:00. When I get to the barn, on most days, 6 to 7 teenagers (I'm in my 50's) are tacking up and jumping/lessoning in the major riding ring. If I want to ride (western) I have to use a much smaller ring that has tree roots coming out of the ground. These trip the horses, and the ground is uneven - up and downhill. I love the trailriding at this barn and the care, but when I want to school my horse and work on new skills, I find it difficult to get time in the good ring or in the indoor during bad weather. As a boarder, do I have a right to expect equal time at the facilities (as the kids get)? This is really getting on my nerves. Unfortunately, where I live there are no other options for quality boarding.
