4 of the 6 barns I've ridden/worked at have that service, and in 2 of them its included in full service board.
I dont like to have my horse tacked up for me, that's something I do myself. However, when I was riding 10-12 horses a day, they would be tacked up for me, and I did like that. It would take too much time if I had to tack up all of them, so I understand the need for it there. But a owner who rides one horse? I dont see the need for that, but it is almost always offered in my affluent, sho
w barn area.
I also see a lot of riding horses before the owner, especially in junior riders. A lot of the horses I rode were just warmups for the owner, get them ready so they can trot off as soon as they get on, and don't have any crazies in them. Again, I wouldn't personally want this, if I think my horse is going to be psycho then I'll lunge him, not have someone else ride him. But so it goes with my part of the country xD
