Disclaimer: the aforementioned term "nut cases" does in no way apply to anyone on this board. (Unless they're willing to admit to it.). ;)

Should I raise my hand?

Its probably best that you dont board. You cannot schedule riding times. Shared tack sheds are a bad idea. liabliolity insurance cost varies depending on states and the Equine Liability laws. CA does not have any, and the law makers are a holes. i hope you get liability coverage fro training/boarding.

It depends on how many boarders you plan on taking on. Up in nebraska I boarded my horse where I worked, and rented an extra stall to put my tack in. Never had an issue with my tack being used.. and as for using the arena the trainer was happy to share. Obviously if he was working with a horse that was just getting started, I would take myself to the outside arena, or wait for him to be done with said horse.. Usually there was no issue as my horse being in the arean aswell was considered a good training oppertunity..

There are different quality of boarders..just steer clear of those that seem hellbent on drama. There are plenty of good boarders out there that are courteous about arena sharing., but I agree on nixing the set arena times..I wouldn't want to spend good money boarding somewhere where i couldn't used the arena between 8 am and 4 pm.

there is very little money to be made boarding. I'd personally stick to training/lessons. you can actually make money in that venture.

I board at a therapeutic riding barn so there are times when we aren't allowed to ride in the arena because of the lessons, but our board is reduced to compensate for the lower riding time. Unless you absolutely have to, don't restrict the arena riding time.

There is also the liability of other people on your property and their horses. Along with drama, horses getting hurt....etc. You are also not making much in return for all the work. With the price of hay and water, board would have to be at $400 to make any profit.
