Yes, you always get everything in writing BEFORE you start. That's with everything, not just with horses.
I understand that you only had to be there 1-2 times a week, but that really isn't that much for free board. I worked off my board when I was a kid. I was at the barn everyday, literally. I changed school buses so I would be dropped off at the barn and I took care of 20+ horses, usually the BO would help. I wouldn't just do basic barn chores either. I would help mow, paint jumps, fencing, help with the garden. Anything that needed to be done. I'm sure the work I did exceeded my board, but I enjoyed my time there. I think you need to realize that you have it really good considering the small amount of work you do for her.
