Always leave on good terms and do not burn any bridges. The satisfaction of ripping her a new one could come back to haunt you.

Some of the best general adviced a person can hear, not just here but in many places, and something I have often wished I'd abided by, . . AFTER I had burned the bridge so foolishly.,

Absolutely! The horse boarding world is a very small one and someone always knows someone who knows someone and it will bite you.

Driving 30 miles twice a day is costing you an extra $5 a day minimum or $150 a month. Not counting the wear and tear on your car and the almost 2 hours of your time, is it still cheap?

Just about anyplace you find that you want to move her to will have a way to help you move her. Most operators will be happy to help. They want and need the income of a new boarder so taking an hour out of their day is a good investment for them. You don't "owe" anything to the people where you are now. Get out before it sours you to horse ownership.

30 miles x 2 = 60 miles @ 20mpg = 3 gallons @ 3.50 /gallon = 10.50$ a day,
Not counting wear and tear.

I'm looking into some other places to board my sweet old mare, but it is the cheapest by far, but the work, and cost of everything is pretty substantial. Then again since it is the cheapest, maybe the "stable manager" would have to stay. Who knows? But I don't see anything changing in the near future...
I don't care how sweet the property owner is. Something is very wrong here. How could the property owner know this is happening (Barn Manager scamming her customers) and not get rid of her???

Are they related?

Wow! I am sorry you are going through this!

This. I have no idea what area of the country you are in, but the vast majority of BO's will be happy to help you move. If not, they know someone who will. I would have been out of here yesterday. You need to use your time and energy to care for your DH, not worry about whether your horse is being cared for.

All very good points, we're looking into another barn. The man just opened, and a stall with a 50'x50' run doesn't sound too bad. We're paying $75, was $125 before for the payment to the manager. But the gas, providing the hay, grain, supplements is running it up. This other place is closer, and is only $160, with everything provided, even choice of grain... The only catch is that he has a lot of people interested, and will have to see if there's room.

As for right now, the property owner told us it would be a good idea to put padlocks on her stall for the time being, so she's all locked up. We're assured that the manager won't have any access to the key the owner has... so we'll see.

As in locking the horse IN her stall??

I was trying to put this nicely, but I can't. Lol. Please don't be offended but you have to move. I honestly can't help people who don't help themselves. You complain about it, yet don't do anything to help you or your horse. The posters above me have provided you some very helpful advice, and you need to take it. DO NOT lock your horse in it's stall, that's ridiculously dumb and asking for trouble. How would she get out in an emergency? Do not drive 30 mi 2x a day, that's outrageous! Find a nice little place near you, which I'm sure there are, and get the heck out of there!!
