Moving to a new barn.............dumb question??
This may seem like a dumb question but is it proper to give notice when you change barns? It's not in my boarding agreement at my present barn that I need to give any notice (its a private place) But I live in a rainy climate and have found a barn with a nice indoor arena etc and I don't want to wait a month to move my filly! But I don't want to be rude as I like my current BO, she just does not have the facilities that I need to work my youngster through the winter wetness!! Maybe I'm just thinking too much!! She doesn't board because she needs the income. God I never used to think about this stuff so much, is it because I'm getting older???

If you like the people where you are now I would at least give them a heads up about your move. I think it is a courtesy thing instead of any contract agreement. Plus you don't want to burn any bridges. The reasons you gave are understandable and I can't see then having a problem with it.

Its generally a common courtesy to do so....Sometimes farms may have a waiting list and they need to know if you are leaving so that they dont have an empty stall for a month as the other potential border may need to give 30 days notice to their current facility....I agree with the other poster, its good to not burn your bridges....This industry is too small and you dont want it to come around and bite you in the rear. JMO :D

Ditto what has been said. Best not to burn any bridges if you liked the Barn Owner

Remember to always do what's in the best interest for you and your horse. Sounds like by changing stables, you would have better training ammenities available. Therefore, it is in your best interest.

It is common courtesy to give the BO notice of your plan to relocate. So, go for it!

Good luck.

Yeah, I'd just give them notice for common courtesy. ;)
