I would think it's the BO's responsibility. Even though you made the boarder aware of it, you did say that you intended to fix it which indicates that you know it's been a problem.
The boarder has a right to expect a certain amount of security and protection for their horse against a possible threat to the horse's safety. You, as the BO, recognized the possibility of a problem but chose to minimize it. As the BO you are supposed to know more then your borders so her not insisting on the problem be cured is not a way of shifting the responsibility.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
