Is there somewhere to ride?
This is all the information for people interested in boarding at our stables. Look it over and notice how much work it is going to be to run this sort of place. Also you can ignore all the stuff having to do with training if you are only looking to start a boarding stable.

So we clean the stalls everyday!!! That is very important! We drag the paddocks once or twice a week. We clean the waters two times a week. We provide hay! If the owner wants grain fed to there horses they have to make it and put it in baggies and we will feed it. Someone always has to be there because the boarders will want to see there horses whenever which is at least three times a week. If you are not there, it would be very easy for someone to take a horse from your barn! We feed at 7-7:30am in the morning and 4-5:30 in the evening.
You need to write a riders release and have it approved. You NEED insurance!!! And the list go's on!
