How early/late does your barn open/close

I have a fellow boarder who works days and can't make it to the barn til early evening. The BO just changed the hours available and now my colleaque feels unjustly targeted. The previous agreement went to 9pm. Most of us boarders are at the barn during the mornings/afternoons.
What is fair to boarders in regards to access of the barn and what times do your barn open up/close down? TIA

My barn doesn't close. I'd be highly offended if someone tried to keep me from my animal. Regardless of the time of day or night, I have access to my horse.

Anytime. My horse does board at a private residence, though.

I love cats, too! We should exchange recipes!!!

7:30-9pm And those hours are only set because they feed at 7:30am and the owner wants to be the last one through the barn at night to make sure everything is shut off and all gates closed and whatnot. If you had a show or something that you needed to leave before 7:30 I don't think it would be a problem.

I just moved to this barn and my previous one didn't have hours but honestly I'm not going to go ride at midnight so it doesn't bother me one bit.

I don't have I open/close hours. I trust my boarders & have never had a problem.
There's a reason arenas have lights.

Open 24x7

BO sleeps with her phone if I tell her ahead of time, she is usually up/down with a kiddo at night and will check on me/wants me to call if the world ends and I get thrown or something.

I can go whenever. If it is going to be an odd hour, I let them know the day before.

This is what happens when you have democrats in office

Our gate opens at 7:30 am and closes at 9:30 pm just to keep out unwanted visitors. Boarders are given a gate code, so we can access our own horses whenever we chose.
