    Generally they open for riding by 9am and the last lesson should end by 8pm. On weekends they close earlier and Mondays are always closed. I wish the hours were longer but it is a smaller, intimate training barn and of course the trainers/owners cannot be available at all hours of the day and the stable is almost like their house - they need private time too. If I did not want training I would move to a barn that was open until at least 10pm, but this works very well for now.

    Our barn hours are 9pm during the week and ends at 7pm on sundays.

    The barn I board at is open all the time, however they ask us to let them know if we're going to be there really early or really late as they live on property. I've looked at barns before that will flat out be closed certain days of the week, I would never want to board at a place like that. But most barns that have hours I find are somewhere from 7 am to 9 pm.

    So you can't visit your horse at all on Mondays? I'd be peeved. Altho, at one point my horse was the only boarder at nasty facility that got irritated at me if I went two days in a row. Got out of there and now spend two hours a day with my mare.

    Can I ask? Those of you that board, and have barn closing times etc... What happens when you go to a show? You can't really be expected to be back by closing time right? Or to not load till mid morning? I ask purely out of curiousity.

    I don't know about others, but at both of the barns I've boarded at, you just let the BO know if you're going to be there early or late and why, just so that they don't think it's an intruder.

    Ok, that seems totally logical. I kinda pictured locked gates.

    Actually, the barn that I'm at now does have a lock on the gate. They'll leave it unlocked if they know you're coming/going to be there, but usually at night they lock it. They have dogs and a pot belly pig loose on the property and they've had horses stolen in the past.

    Well I suppose I wasn't too far off then. I honestly was curious how it worked. We roll out at 5am and don't get home till 2 am the next day sometimes. Just didn't know how it worked. Thanks.
