I know my BO extremely well and am also an assistant trainer at my farm. BO lives on the property full-time as well. We don't have "barn hours", so to speak. During the week I am forced to come up later in the evening. I don't typically get there until 8 and sometimes even 9. I am courteous about what I do though as I feel terrible keeping the horses up late.

At a busier facility, I would imagine that being open until 9 PM is fair. I understand it is likely a huge liability to have people there late when there isn't as much foot traffic in case something happened. There's also the irresponsibly night-goer who forgets to latch gates or shut lights off..

The barn I'm at (and about to take over) has posted hours of 7AM-9PM. None of the boarders have had a problem, except one that came up late to take her horses without paying board. She had other issues though, obviously, haha. The BO isn't strict with the rules though and has had people over late or even overnight.

I've been combing through the rules to update everything before I take over, and I went ahead and added that if anyone wants to come outside of posted hours to arrange it with me and my husband first, as we will live on site. As a boarder, I'd refuse to stay at a place that restricted me from seeing my horse, but as a BO, I'd worry if someone started messing with horses and property at odd hours without my knowing why.
