The owners know what condition the ring is in. Since you say that you are the only one that rides, it probably just isn't a priority for them as I'm sure they have other things to tend to. I have boarded at places and have asked to do minor repairs on things. I've never been turned down and the owners all seemed pleased to have someone do it for them anyway.
I know its not a priority for them right now because of the ex trainer/daughter in law won't let them see there grand kids. So I understand they've got a lot going on right now. Which is why I don't think they would mind if I asked to fix the ring. I hope.
