I guess 30 days notice is fair, although I think it can be a little excessive, but makes sense if you pay month by month. If you pay week by week I think it should be 21 days, and always both sides have to give it.
Although, some places do seem a little unfair about it. If you're in a full board position I think the rate should be reduced once your horse leaves to only stall/paddock rent and maintenance, like you shouldn't be charged the full price that includes feed or labour - in my mind these are "consumables" in a way. Also, I think it should be 30 days unless someone can be moved in earlier, so if there places has a waiting list you should be able to have someone take it over, or if you know that another boarder is getting a new they can take over your stall early.
