My board is contractual. It would be ridiculous not to put board in a contract. That leaves the BO open to change board and any associated conditions on a whim.

It happens. Board goes up all the time. $100 probably didn't even cover the cost associated with having the horse there. She was trying to be nice and doing you a favor. Likely thinking since you had a place to take him, you would move him home.

Does it really matter who was right or wrong? Neither one of you own the horse in question. Have fun with the horse you have and consider the experiences with RJ a lesson learned.

Yes SEAmom and everyone else, board is a conrtact! It should not however be a condition when you purchase your horse. You should not buy a horse from a BO and truly expect them to set your board so low, train your horse then never needy charge more. That's what I meant by contract when I said the one she had was ridiculous.

I agree with the lessons learned aspect. The fact of the matter is that there was a contract. That becomes legally binding. The barn owner legally wasn't allowed to change the board without writing a new contract unless there was a statement in the original contract saying she could change it under specific conditions. It doesn't matter if the owner thought the horse would leave, it's still a contract. This is the wonderful thing about contracts. It get rid of what people think is right, wrong, fair, or unfair and puts everything on the table.

Based on the OP, the barn owner broke the contract by raising the cost of board - again, unless there was something stating that the board could be adjusted. I don't know what the details were for the training and they should've been clearly spelled out in the contract. There's no way of telling whether that part was broken or not based on the post.

I don't think she's looking for attitude, lessons, lectures, or what she did wrong/right. Legally the barn owner was in the wrong based on what was posted on here. That's it.
