Hi there, all!

I like the variety of perspectives offered in this forum, both on matters as barn owners and boarders, and more simply and most importantly, amongst caring horse owners . As a barn owner, it is interesting to see what boarders "really think" without them having the fear that their thoughts will be "found out". I feel that the ability to be open and forthcoming is key in developing a working relationships between boarders and barn owners... however, in this business I've found that sometimes it can be difficult to cultivate and maintain that.

Sooooo, I hope you don't mind when I post looking for insights. I've always only ever been a "barn owner" and not ever a "boarder", so I guess it helps to hear it from the "other side" or to put the "shoe on the other foot". Look forward to meeting you!

Hi, welcome to the forum! I boarded for awhile until I was able to get my own place. I can't say enough good things about where I boareded, they were great...even when they told me I fed my horse too many treats and to stop it! Guilty, even now!!

Hi, welcome to the forum! I board my two horses and love the place I'm at. There's no drama(I'm the youngest there), everything is always clean, everyone is always willing to help out and it's lovely. (:

I am in love, with what we are, not what we should be.

hi, welcome. I have the same thing to say as Legyield.

I don't even want to own property. I am a city girl! So I am very happy boarding.
