My old stables allowed boarders to ride with the lessons but that got a little old after a while.
Well, I think she really likes the income he is bringing in. When he moved in the BO told me he taught every day from 1-4. So I would show up at 4:30 or 5 and he would still be there. So I have started going in the mornings when I can. I asked the BO about the jumps and she said, "I will see what we can do. He uses them every day." So I am thinking she pretty much gave him the arena. Also since he has moved in my horse has been moved to two different stalls.
