I don't see how you don't get stuck with an unpaid board bill with those late fees. You need to check the laws in your state, you could be setting yourself up for a lawsuit
boarding and renting are two different things. There are pretty much no regulations on boarding. You can give poor quality hay.. poor quality grain etc.. as long as the horses are not starving there is nothing the boarder can do but choose to leave or fix it with you.
