Usually the person who leases just shows up and rides-
Exacty. And in most cases - rules and policies of the barn be danged.
Actually those leasing can be a nightmare for barn owners. BO's often have to clean up after the leasor, put tack away, shut doors, gates, etc. They tend to bring buddies out and everyone gets to take a turn riding . . .
Horse owner gets ticked when Blaze isn't cooled off or brushed properly and the BO gets the brunt of the anger.
The BO very likely put the new policy up front to keep everyone on the same page. Proactive instead of reactive.
