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.
