so the red flags were there at the getgo...biggest mistake you made was not getting everything in writing...like EVERYTHING that's a part of the boarding agreement...not that it wouldve probably mattered much here, by your words this woman is a total horror and probably you not her only victim...ive been at several boarding barns/farms and never encountered anything like this...i feel bad you had to go thru it...if she runs a boarding business publicly I would totally write a lovely review...warning ppl away from this place...ppl like her need victims to feed on, it is just their way.

Craigslist is probably the best place for a starting point for boarding barns, and if you are not picky about amenities I would also look at private farms...they tend to be cheaper too. In the places where you go normally I would ask around like any ag stores etc. they may know of places nearby. Good luck with all of this!!

We have things in writing but it didn't matter to her. Everyone else there is full board who just show up and ride and leave, they don't have to do any work or have any opinions on their horse's care.

This morning was borderline unbearable. I need to move. I wish I could move today.

Will she let you just pay for full board until you leave, then there is no question about who's responsible for all care?

Her full board is more than I can afford at $800/month. She just wants me gone and I want to be gone..

I would suggest keeping everything but a couple days feed for your horse home with you until you move, and bring feed out as necessary. Yeah, pain in the bum, but then she has no complaints on you taking up her precious storage space. And if she's moving your stuff around then it makes it all too 'easy' for stuff to go 'missing', eh?

I hope you find a place soon!

You should probably take your things home. I would only leave one or two weeks worth of hay .
Ask her if this would be acceptable .
Explain to her you are looking for another place and will leave as soon as possible.
You should just go visit those other barns and see what they are like personally , talk to boarders that are there. Don't go into another barn bad mouthing . Say nothing. Just go look. One lady that boarded with me, bad mouthed me, but she was the person that was trouble from day one. The other owners of 8 horses were content and very happy.

I have never bad mouthed her, I feel that's unprofessional... I feel sad she's doing that to me ...
I have nowhere to put my hay which makes me nervous .. Ugh

Glad to know that, sometimes it hard not to say something . Do you have an empty garage ? A long driveway ? Or are you in an apt ?
She should not be moving your stuff around, I find that to be wrong, since you did not ask her to do so. At this point she is being vindictive. Hope you find some place very very soon.

I wish you were closer. I would tell you to pack up and come to my place. I know exactly how you feel, I went through something very similar not to long ago. Get word out, knock on doors, ask at the feed stores and tack stores. There has to be somewhere you can move.
