    Then just talk to her. Put your thoughts in writing first, if that helps. Organize them into a logical order, read over the notes a few times, and then go talk to the BO.
    Be prepared that it might not go as you are hoping though.

    BO has to decide how much she wants to do barn chores if you leave. Good barn help is hard to find. I'd chose the good barn help over anything else, especially with a waiting list. I'll bet the BO can take a holiday confident that the horses will be properly cared for.

    If you spend 4 hours on chores, that is quite a lot of work. You could be spending that time working another job. You could take the money and pay board. Or you could take the money and use it to make land payments if you live somewhere that you plan to stay. If you are boarding two horses, you could take one back to your family farm and only pay board for one. There are lots of choices.

    Legally, the BO owns the property, so she can tell you to leave if she wishes it. Doesn't sound like a great place. I say look around for another facility. EVEN IF this one is closer or has better turnout or has a better indoor/outdoor arena, you'll be miles ahead without both the attitudes, lack of schedule posting--VERY BAD BUSINESS MODEL--and mystery injuries to your horse.
