HI everyone...here is my update. Our new BO came and got our 2 horses and she didn't even charge us to pick them up. Very nice of her so we got her a gift card for thanks. We got the horses up to new place with no problems and they got settled in nicely. My horse actually had a spring in her step and all the "boys" in the adjacent pasture were checking out the 2 new girls! :) Our girls looked so happy and content. They will have their own stalls from now on (I like to think of stalls as their own snug little bedroom) and we now get to finally enjoy our horses with no hassles. We now know our horses are being well fed, and are being taken excellent care of.

Pasture boarded horses pay less because they consume less labor and overhead when it comes to keeping them.

That does NOT mean, in my book, that they are any less entitled to the use of the riding (to include tacking and grooming) facilities.

Just the exclusion from the use of customary facilities for grooming and tacking would be enough for me to give my 30 days and GTHO.

The feed issue is just icing on the cake.

Glad to see you felt the same way.

Boarding

If you are able I would immediately make plans to leave. There is no reason to have to put up with that especially if your horses aren't getting good feed.

I sympathize with you, I have boarded my horse as long as I have had her, have experianced some pretty bad things and have moved my horse alot. I've dealt with dirty water, no water, not enough hay, poor quality hay and moldy hay. My tack being used and not put back, my halters on other horses and I have even had tack stolen. I had trouble with grain not being fed when I provided it. Like you, there were horses being pastured in the outdoor arena that I have the right to use so I couldn't use it. At one place, I also dealt with changing barn hours such as barn closed all holidays. One change I was not informed about I drove 40 mins and couldn't ride one day because someone was showing their horse to a perspective buyer. I stood out in the cold for 45 mins. With my horse and then it was getting dark so I had to unsaddle and leave. Wouldn't have cared so much but I told her I was coming. I had constant phone calls and texts from the barn owner that was constantly changing her mind and decided she wasn't going to board 2 weeks after I moved my horse there leaving me in a bad situation. That same barn owner asked me for damages when I left due to my horse cribbing and the area that was damaged my horse didn't even have access too. Not to mention other people watching me ride and critiqueing me when I didn't ask for it, if I wanted to be judged I would go to the shows at least I could win ribbons there right? Oh yeah and then there was the great idea of let's get a bull and I get to go get my horse out of the pasture when that big scary beast is in there! Eek! Sorry I'm ranting, but my experiance with boarding has been a nightmare up until 2 years ago. Thank God I've finally found a good place!

So glad you found a nice place to keep them! Life is too short to deal with the hassles of boarding at a place that doesn't meet you or your horses needs. I'm happy for you

You can use the barn because your horse is out in the pasture is the dumbest thing I have heard..... that is discrimination and that is not something you should be dealing with. Why support them with your money when you can't use the barn. Get out of there
