Per my understanding she meant people with zero riding experience get a horse and THEN take lessons on that horse to LEARN how to ride.

That is what I meant, Kitten Val :)
Like, I do understand knowing the basics of riding and owning a horse.. and then improving from there. But transporting your own horse for riding lessons? Maybe they're touching on "Parelli training".. who knows. I honestly don't care enough to find out.. Anyways, moving past the minor complaints..

The boarding contract says that they are to provide hay/water. All other expenses are our costs. We pay to have them occupy the space. There are three of us boarding there, and besides my friend, there is an older woman who is quite tight with the BM these days. Second boarder has inquired about providing the hay (family friend willing to provide 2010 bales cheap) and it was shot down.

At this point in time, I think you're all right in it's obviously not working out.

Yep, time to move. It is unacceptable that she allowed the boarder horses to run completely out of feed without at least telling you all that "we have hay on order, it will be here *whichever day*". Especially since it is in the boarding contract that the BO will provide hay. I think you should do what's best for your horse and get out of there.
