Over stepping boundaries???

I'm in a bit of predicament where I board my horses. The ring is falling apart! One side is almost touching the ground. There are several boards broken straight into. I'm not sure what to do. The Owners have all these spare boards behind the barn where the hay is. I really want to ask them if they care if I repair and widen the ring, but I don't want to over step my boundaries. I honestly don't mind doing the work and I wouldn't inconvenience anyone else as I am the only boarder there. I also have the only rideable horse on the farm. So don't I deserve a safe arena to ride in?

I say ask. The worst thing they can say is no.

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'm sure they'll be happy for the help. My barn owner would love if more people offered to help her.

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.

I say ask. Sometimes things get pushed aside because there's just too much to do. I'm sure they would appreciate the help. Like someone else saide, it's probably not a priority right now.
