I board horses & would never throw a new one out like that or allow it to be done to mine.
Hopefully nothing really bad will happen to the OP's horse.

Not all boarding places do that. It's easy to ask about their procedures before moving a horse in & then deciding what amount of risk we're willing to take.

Indeed. Another common poor choice, IMHO, that I see a lot is folks introducing a horse to a new herd/pasture at feeding time (typically late in the afternoon/early evening). Not only can feed bring out the aggressiveness in horses, but you have very little time to keep an eye on everything before night....Ive seen more horses go through/get snagged in fences that first night with serious leg injuries...

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

Being shes a new horse owner shes not going to know what questions to ask the boarding stable owner. Yes we do have a choice on whether we will keep our horse at a place that just kicks new horses out in a herd situation. But like i said op is new to the horse thing. I just hope her horse is ok this morning.

Thank you everybody for your input. I am thankful to say that everything seemed to calm down at the barn today. Yes, she had a couple of nicks, but overall, seemed fine. We put ointment on her nicks and I'm thinking that she might be fine now. Unfortunatley I am learning on the fly. If I knew yesterday what I know now, I would have introduced her differently. Hindsight is 20/20. However, I am a pretty fast learner and now I know for the future.

Sometimes horses work things out without injuries, sometimes they don't, crapshoot. Slow integration into a herd is best. Personally, I'd never allow my horse to kept with other boarders, too risky and my horse is too expensive.
