I've been to a handful of barns and I don't know of anytimes we can or can't be out. I know the day doesn't matter, and I can't imagine them caring what time we come out...

My barn has no set hours, and the owner lives up a hill, far enough away that if we just go about our business we won't disturb her. As long as when we leave the lights are out, horses shut away, and aisles swept, it is all good.

The barn I board at has "barn hours" but they really aren't a big deal. They close up at 7ish but people come after that and they are expected to close all the doors and turn off an lights they turn on, off. During the summer, the BO, who is my cousin, is usually out on the deck at his house so he can see everything and most of the boarders that come after hours are friends so they come up to the house and sit on the deck with us. It's a really relaxed place. =)

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

The barn I used to board at was about 6:30 to 10:00. Two families lived on the property. It was awesome because both were police officers and did nightly checks on the horses and tack.

They would of course make exceptions when you had a show super early or came in super late to check on an injured/sick horse.

I'm not sure what time mine 'opens' but it closes at 9, though the barn owner doesn't really care and we've stayed until 10 before.

passion is when you put more energy into something than is required to do it. it is more than just enthusiasm or excitement, passion is ambition that is materialized into action to put as much heart, mind, body and soul into something as is possible. // <3 starlite - dream - lady - georgia

I don't have hours of operation at my barn as my boarders to this point have all been respectful.........I'm up doing feed at 6:30/7:00 am and do late night at 11:00 any time between those times.........I certainly would not appreciate some one out in the middle of the night.
