    You are at the barn EVERY OTHER DAY, that is what you said. I would guess that the people who run it are there a lot more than that. Unless of course the horses don't get fed, either. I don't think you know it all there every other day. Sorry.

    I think Iseul said what I was thinking.

    Either talk to the barn owners or move. Period the end, it's that simple. I didn't have money or a trailer when I moved my horse due to the BO all of a sudden refusing to turn her out and kept her locked in a 10x10 cow stall. All within a few weeks. I found someone to trailer and went without buying any food for myself except a dollar chicken sandwich here and there so that I could move her.

    Honestly, if you care about your horses' well being that much, you'd either find a way to move them, come to an agreement with the barn owners (like, yesterday), or sell your horses to someone who can afford them.

    Not being rude here, just being blunt. One of my pet peeves because I've been through it and got myself out, at only 19 years old.

    Ok first off they weren't in charge of the horses when I'm horse got hurt that two -three years ago when there daughter in law was there as the trainer. That has nothing to do with them. I'm saying now in the present the ring has pretty much fallen apart and there are boards and nails sticking out everywhere now. I've torn down all the ones I'm physically able to get down and they don't mind that. Hell the lady of was up here when I took some them down. And it's not only money that keeps from moving it's the location. It's best location for me 10 minutes from my house and 5 from my work. I don't understand why I'm the bad guy for wanting things to get fixed not only so it's safe but also functional. The BOs understand I can't move my horses.

    I don't want that. Gees I just want for once to agree to with me! And yes I see those horses more than the BO's because they don't get feed! They are all on pasture! So yes I see them more! I know they walk down there every day but they don't know these horses they way I do. I know exactly when one them is off. So don't pull that they live there they know more cause they don't. I usually have to tell them when something is wrong. They have some knowledge about horses but no enough for being left wit horses when the daughter in law left.

    Look back over your boarding contract and see if there is anything in it that might help your case. Personally, I'd be a bit peeved if someone came in and started tearing down boards with out consulting me, even if it was a hazard.

    Is location so important to you that you are willing to risk the health of your horses? I would rather move my horses to a nicer place farther away that keep them in a closer place with barbed wire and other hazards. Even though you pay board, only you are ultimately responsible for your horses health and well being.

    It sounds like this place is going downhill and the owners aren't willing to make improvements. Having one person badger them isn't working. It might be time to consider other options.

    How old are you?

    Also, I'm at the barn every day doing either groundwork or riding. I couldn't even begin to know which horses she gets along with aside from Dude, who she was originally pastured with when I first moved her here. If the BOs live their, they most likely know who gets along with who. My BO's daughter (who only comes home at night and doesn't deal with the horses) knows who my mare gets along with better than I do. That's a plus to me boarding. I know that she's being fed, looked over, and put in a pasture with the appropriate herd. If I didn't feel that way, she'd have been moved to a different barn, again.

    I also didn't mention anything about your horse getting hurt, I said when YOU put YOUR horses THERE. (Read that as italics, on mobile)

    Not to mention..be glad you have a ring, be it "hazardous" or not. I have a 20x50' part of the barn that never had stalls put in, otherwise I have to go bushwhack through the woods or in the 50' roundpen that has hard dirt/mud as footing.

    Personally, I would much rather have my horses somewhere farther away and safe than close in barbwire pastures with only that separating my mare from a stud.

    But that's just my opinion. Sorry I'm not just agreeing with you, but I don't do that.

    The lady was up there talking to my mom when I was working on the taking boards down. They don't mind that. And yeah for Location is cause I have to have someone with me at the barn cause I can't be up there riding alone. So for connivance of the others with me the locations is important.

    Where are you in TN? Feel free to PM me, but I know people who have trailers, so if you need a horse moved, I could probably help hook you up there. Mare + stallion + three strand barbed wire = preggo mares +/- serious injury to someone. Never something I would accept.

    I think you should have been told your horses were being moved, if for no other reason than so you wouldn't freak out looking for them.

    That place isn't suitable and it's not safe. I get that you don't have a trailer but I'm sure you could pay someone to move your horse(s) for you.

    If you can't find someone to move your horses, then all you can do is voice your concerns. If you're too broke to move then your option is to suck it up and hope they change it. Sorry to be harsh but that's the reality.

    I don't have boarding contract I'm the only boarder. Trust me if there Was anywhere that wasn't hour + to move them too I would but right now it just isn't doable. I can't pay more than I'm paying now.

    Why don't you approach them about paying a little more and renting the paddock you're in as a private paddock? Wouldn't that solve most of your problems?

    You need to work out your priorities. If you legitimately feel your horse is in danger there then that needs to be your primary concern above money and convenience. So what if you can't ride as often or whatever - work out what your number one concern is and address it, then move on down the list. So if you feel your horse is at unreasonable risk then find a way to move your horse, rent a car and trailer, hire someone to move for you, if you can't afford to provide adequate care (which includes ensuring a safe environment) then sell the horse. It's not that complicated.

    I used to have two horses but I couldn't afford to give them both the care I deemed adequate. I didn't just leave one in an unsafe paddock or anything, I sold it.

    I get you're frustrated and feel these people should do all these things for you, but unfortunately that's how life is. They provide a service that you either choose to use or not to.

    Best of luck.
