I'm curious, is this legal?
I have been calling local barns inquiring about boarding my new horse to see what other facilities has to offer. I was shocked after talking to a worker from one particular barn that has a high boarding fee to hear that in top of the boarding fee you are required to pay for and take at least 1 riding lesson a week regardless of your riding experience plus you are not allowed to come ride, visit or be on the property except for your lesson. This was a red flag to me. Has anyone heard of a boarding facility that does that? Is that even legal to not allow you to see your own horse whenever you want? I'm just curious what others have to say about this.
