You need to move to a new place and fast.

Pay for the 30 days and move as soon as you can. You'll be out the money but I wouldn't leave the horse there any longer than you have to.

As much as you want to swear and complain about it, 30 days notice is pretty much the standard in most industries, and for sure in this one. It is not the BO being evil or mean. It sounds like she is simply asking you to follow the contract you signed, that you obviously did not read very well.

And yes, getting it in writing is best. It probably says it has to be in writing in your contract.

You should probably start your letter with "Per our discussion on August 31st....."

Amerea is correct. You can not sign it, your father has to.

I'm curious, in other areas can you give the 30 days and not have to keep the horse at the facility?

When it's a sticky situation like this, I always worry that the horse isn't going to get the good care it should. People can be so vindictive, especially if they are going to be losing money (unless she can get a replacement boarder right away).

I do not know any facility that requires you to stay after you give your 30 days notice. They are perfectly happy getting the money and letting you leave.

That's what I have seen around here. Wasn't sure if there were any weird rules about it.

I second that. And better to write ASAP. Just to be on safe side.

In general if there is a real conflict with BO - it's easier just to move on (and better on your nerves too!).

Again, thanks guys. The 30 day notice was written and signed by my father. I will be giving it to her with the check probably tomorrow or the fifth. Whichever day my dad is home.

I'm sorry but, SHE's the child in this argument, not you hun.
I'd have flipped if someone changed my horses feed without asking.
Then again, I would've gotten out of there when she first started showing her "ways". I'm the stubborn type though.

I feel for you I really do :/

A word of advice: don't burn any bridges. The horse world is a very small one indeed, and you never know if you'll need her or her friend's or her cousin twice removed's services in the future. It's hard, I know, but in a few months (years?) this incident won't matter as much to you, and I guarantee if you keep a cool head, you'll be relieved you did.
