I personally am enjoying having my horses boarded.
My horses are boarded with my trainer where they receive the utmost in care. It's incredibly cold and snowing right now, I'm in my nice warm house knowing that my horses are in clean, warm stalls with tons of hay, clean water and I didn't have to go out in this muck to ensure they had it!
I don't have to drag the arena, fix fences, haul hay, clean stalls, fill water buckets, turnout horses, schedule the Vet, Farrier and so forth.
Now don't get me wrong, I'm not lazy and although I pay for full care, I generally clean the whole barn whenever I'm out there as I greatly appreciate the over and above care my trainer provides and it's non-riding time I can spend with all the horses. But as a Mom of small kids who works a fulltime job, this means I can have the best of everything. Fat, happy, healthy horses AND time to spend with my kids doing what they enjoy.
I'm also incredibly lucky in that I am her only boarder so there's never a crowded arena, stuff going missing or any sort of drama. I have all the peace and quiet I could ever want and my trainer is available for help and advice if I need it.
