    I'd be really irritated if this happened.

    People own their own horses so they can ride whenever they want to. Closing hours are different, like 6am to 10pm or something, but I am surprised they can even say you can't come out and see your own horse. Especially on a Saturday. I'd just go anyway if she hadn't made us sign a new contract or something.

    I board. And theres been many nights I've gone on night rides as late as 11pm. Heck, one night me and my sis rode two of her horses to my barn, switched out for two of mine and went home. Then swapped them back the next day. But mine is a very laid back/self care place. I have a key to everything so I can come and go as I please. I would not be happy to ever be locked out of a place where my horses stay.

    That's pretty odd. I can see maybe having someone come in and feed if you don't think you can get back in time, I do that fairly frequently. I'll feed before I leave for the day, and do the morning chores and then have someone come in and feed and do evening chores if I can't get back in time. I might even have someone stay all day just to keep an eye on things sometimes or have them house sit if I'm gone to a show for a weekend or even a week, but shut down completely? No....don't think that would fly.

    Wow I have never heard of a barn being closed before. Mine was talking about having hours but that was just because this one guy would show up at really odd hours.

    Presonally I would move there is no reason to not have acess to my horses. How do they know all the horses are ok? It seems unfair to everyone involed. I try to ride 6 days a week on my younger horses and get my other horse out and moving. And they 7th day I let them out to run for hours and do what ever. And sometimes loung my moms horse.

    That's crazy. My BO probably wouldn't care if I was riding untill 11...as long as I could feed the horses and lock up after. I can't even imagine being told "no, on the busiest day of the week for any horse person, you are not allowed to come ride your horse" I would be livid.

    Like Joe4d said, reduce your payments proportionally to the number of days in a month when the barn is closed. At the same time look for some other place to move to.

    You sound like a minor. What are your parents saying/doing about this? They are the ones with the squeeze to make the calls.

    Every time I hear stuff like this it makes me doubly grateful for our BO and situation. It's more like being part of the family...we have 24/7 access and the dogs don't even bark at us anymore. She takes care of our horses like her own and calls if there's even a scratch.

    I'm surprised your parents aren't looking for another boarding situation. This woman sounds like she's really not interested in having boarders.

    I think you should find a new place. You should have 24/7 access to your horse/s. I don't understand why they would be closed for a day they should be open everyday, you pay them money for your horse being there
