Keep in mind that there is more to someone hauling your horse than time and gas. That trailer requires regular maintenance, and tires as does the tow vehicle which also requires insurance. There is also general wear and tear on both. Come to an arrangement were you pay for hauling and she pays you for the work then both of you will feel like you got a fair deal. Payment for your work and cost for hauling will be arranged in advance.

Janeywaney, everytime you talk to, work with, or just spend time with someone you teach them how you will allow them to treat you. She is only doing what you have allowed her to do in the past. Why should she change now?
I would not move just yet but you do need to communicate your displeasure and frustration to the BO.
Keep the conversation focused on you. by using I instead of you.
Such as I need to show this year and I am working extra..... I will go to college.... I need this from the BO.
Telling her SHE is the problem and SHE needs to change is going to put her on the defensive.
Acknowledge that she might be overworked but with college fast approaching YOU need more time to focus on other activities.
Never ever burn your bridges and always leave any place you board with a good reference and the ability to return if possible.
Good luck. Shalom
