My boarding stable

So I have a boarding barn and my family has our own personal barn for our horses and the horses we train. We have some extra space and where thinking about taking in boarders? What are some pros and cons?

non payment . Drama . Will the boarders share an arena with the horses in training.. big problem.. arguements over round pens, asking for training help and expect it free. Not cleaning pens. Using others tack. Don't share tack sheds. Everyone gets there own little seperate locked shed. And yet more drama

O wow that does not sound fun ya we only have one indoor arena and one tack room in the barn. We were thinking that maybe we could have scheduled riding times or something though?

when I used to board I had 4 horses. I was on vacation, my neice and myself went out to ride. The person whom rented the house at the stable, and kept a horse there, saw us, ran out , and turned her horse loose in the arena, and informed me that during the week was her use for the arenas not mine. She had also yelled a couple of my other neices and nephews at a diff time, and I simply went and got a newspaper, used the phone at the stable, started calling ads for boarding. The owner asked my why.. Well did He get an ear full. I pay board not to have riding times assigned to me. Not to have someone scream at my family members or myslef. This was a small stable maybe ten stalls.
I would have never moved to a stable that set riding times.

Bad idea!
I would NEVER board at a barn that had 'assigned' riding times of any kind. You share the arena 100% of the time or you don't accept boarders.

If you have the time and space, why not just do layup or pasture for yearlings. Love the horses but I wouldn't want a bunch of nut cases running around my barn. Don't forget there's also a *huge* liability if someone is injured on your property.

I've boarded at many different barns and it showed me that I would never, ever want to get into boarding horses. So much drama. Horse people are CRAZY!

passion is when you put more energy into something than is required to do it. it is more than just enthusiasm or excitement, passion is ambition that is materialized into action to put as much heart, mind, body and soul into something as is possible. // <3 starlite - dream - lady - georgia

You have a boarding barn but your asking for pros and cons for taking on boarders? Do you mean you have a private barn that you also train out of and your thinking about bringing in boarders as a new venture?
