    24/7. I can see my horse whenever I like. I just make sure all lights are shut off before I leave :)

    7:30am-9:00pm where I used to board, the arenas didn't have lights and the BOs lived on the property, I think they just wanted to be able to have time to themselves.

    24/7, 365 :)
    I actually visited my horse on Christmas (family wanted to meet him and that's the only time they're on this side of the country!) It's very nice to have it open 24/7, but I don't think I've ever been there later than 9.

    Thanks for the input. For you lucky ones who have no limit in access I envy you.
    Our barn is also on private property with owners living on site.
    I've always wanted to sleep with my horse - not necessarily in his stall but in the aisle! I doubt I'll be able to at this place.

    I believe the most we've had for set hours was for one trainer. After scheduling several lessons in a row from 8am-1pm, it became a hassle for us who were cleaning to try to work around them and we felt we were in her way with our loud tractor and us having normal conversations between stalls. She was just told not to schedule anything until 11am, which gave us more than enough time to have everyone outside, fed, and that entire part of the barn spic and span.

    In the summer when it's too hot or humid to go riding outside comfortably for most of the day, I've gone out riding with my BO starting at 8-9pm and not get back until 11pm or so. Last summer, there was a day I was determined to ride, but it was so disgustingly hot that I waited until literally midnight and didn't leave until after 1am (though I did shoot my BO a text saying I was the one outside, not some stranger as they live on the property).

    I can go anytime I want. But if I'm banging around at 4am trying to get ready to go somewhere I'll tell my BO the day before. Just so they know someone isn't stealing my trailer and horse. I feel awkward being there after 9pm though. I'm the only boarder currently and my BO goes to bed early.

    Open at 8am, close at dusk. BO lives on property and there's no lights except in the two "barns." The hours suck during the winter for me because I don't get off until 5-5:30pm and it gets dark before 6pm (it takes twenty minutes to get from work to home or the barn).

    24/7/365. And I know for a fact that a couple of my night owl compatriots definitely are out there riding at 2am when the mood strikes them. I'm only ever there during daylight hours even though we have lights unless it's a holiday and I'm stopping by late or early to feed though.

    My yard doesnt have "opening or Closing times" however the Yard owner does ask that we try and keep to reasonable hours (so before 9pm), if we need unreasonable hours (so 4.30am for shows for me) then we just need to let her know so she doesnt stress when she hears cars on the drive.

    In winter if we are no there 30mins before it gets dark the YO will bring the horses in for us.
