The reality is that at every stable, you trade pros and cons. A list of your priorities, in order of importance, will clearly outline what you can let go of and what you're not willing to give up.
The last place I boarded at had: a great community, great trails, safe horsekeeping, outdoor horsekeeping, 5 mins from my house. It did not have: enough calories for my horse. So I shut up and fed her up every time I was there (almost daily). The pros were all my top five wants. The con I could do something about.
Now I'm a 30-something barn owner dealing with ungrateful people who have no appreciation for why I run things the way I do. Don't like it, move somewhere else.
Good luck, kid and remember, you're the driver of your own bus.
