Oh, I completely agree, the board price is super reasonable. Just think hard about the reality of vet bills-sometimes things take you by surprise and suddenly you're looking at a $2,000 bill. For this reason, I had it written in to my lease that the one thing I WOULDN'T be responsible for were vet bills-I knew that I didn't/don't have enough money to cover an emergency situation, and I didn't want to take on the responsibility of any horse knowing that.
Agree with Jubilee-get everything in writing. Have fun-it sounds great!
