With the pros out of the way, I'd like to point out the cons. The owner of the barn is a woman in her thirties. She's an A-type and a micromanager TO THE MAX. She hires only teenage girls, makes them work off of the clock, and is constantly changing their duties so that she doesn't have to pay them more than she wants. She also overcharges for lessons and camps and is in reality an awful teacher.
One of the bad experiences I've had with her is that there was one night where it was below freezing ( not raining) and she had the girl working put all of the horses up. For whatever reason my horse stayed outside BY HIMSELF, even though she had put up the other boarder's horses. I went to speak with the girl about it but she had taken off.
Another time was when my horse was turned out and I went to check his water bucket, and it was BLACK. We complained, and she told us that the water was the boarder's responsibility, even though she clearly stated when we toured the barn with her that the workers would take care of all of the horse's water. So we had to dump out, clean, and refill the bucket because of her hypocrisy.
I heard a rumour that next year she's switching to full care only, and I have NO idea what to do if she does because there are no other stables nearby :c
