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!
