It is proper procedure to give 30 days notice when you leave a barn.

It is not uncommon, when leaving one barn and going to another to pay board at two places for one month.

If you can in good conscious say that this horse is yours then pack this horse and your other horse onto the trailer. While the trailer leaves hand the barn owner your 30 days notice with a check for board for both horses for that 30 days.

Notice usually starts on the day your board is due. If your board is due on the first of the month then you give notice the first of the month (or shortly before) for the next month.

True but did you sign a boarding contract specific to that horse? If it is not documented it didn't happen.

What did not happen?

The horse has lived there and has been fed and cared for.

What are you saying did not happen?

I agree completely with this, first examine your conscience as to if he really is still your horse, then get him out before or as you give notice. And pay for the full following month.

What I meant was that if there was no written contract for that horse and documentation that that horse used so much $ in feed, farrier, it isn't legally binding and the original boarders will have rights to the horse.

Note** When it comes to anything about anything dealing with money and legal stuff get it in writing!!!!! That way there is no dispute as to what is what and what was paid was actually paid.

I am guessing the barn owner has a leg to stand on because the OP has another horse boarded there so it can be assumed that the OP has an understanding of how horse boarding works.


I do agree, a good contract helps everyone.

I wonder if the OP or daughter have been taking lessons, then if they have been getting the discount usually given to boarders or people that use their own horses when riding same horse in a lesson? Most places I know also allow an amount off if one's horse is used/ridden in a lesson by another student, but of course here the deal apparently was for the entire board so that would not apply. In my limited experience though it has been the horse owner, not the barn owner who is responsible for vetting and farrier...

If they threaten to file a lien for non payment of board, I would estimate the number of times they used your horse for lessons/trail rides and write up a bill for his use. It can work both ways and I suspect there are plenty of "students" who would vouch for having ridden him.

Subscribing, as I would really like to see how this ends.
