what an idiotic way of doing things.

Here if you pay for stable and turnout then you have free use of the stable. I.e if you want to leave your horse in for days and you do all the work then you can, at no extra cost. Normaly you only incurr extra costs for services provided e.g mucking out.

I pay 22 per week for stable, turnout (during the day only) and as much haylege as I want. I can keep in or turn out as I want (provided that I don't turn out at night).

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

Yeah, I thought so too but, in all honesty it's just not worth it to argue with the BO about it. I mean even if he wanted me out he could of just said so and gave me a date he wanted me out and I would have left with no problem. I don't know what the reason is that he did raise the board but, that's his problem now. Actually I think 200 for rough board in my area is a little much but, I'm not one to say anything.

When I first went into that barn I gave him 100$ to hold the stall since, he had other people looking and he originally said I was paying 200$ for pasture, turnout and the stall. I muck, feed, water, shavings, etc... I pay for all of that myself so he never paid for anything for my horse. Never stood for vet, farrier. I don't understand it but, hey it's his barn he'll do what he pleases but, to raise one boarders board and not the other boarders is plain out wrong especially, without warning or notice. If he would have gave me notice I would have gladly gave him the money. Ah well.

to me charging extra for the use of the stall you have already paid for it like saying:

The rent on your flat is 200 per month, but oh hang on you are on holiday for a week so home for longer since you arnt at work during the day, so i'll charge you 400. Mad, totaly mad!

With no written contract, the BO can dictate anything they like. Which is why it's inadvisable to go into any type of agreement without having something in writing.

When you rent an apartment or house you have a written, contractual agreement, which means the landlord can't change the terms on you overnight.

If you knowingly go into an arrangement with NO written contract, tell me again who the foolish one is?

Speedracer - I agree, no contract is foolish but what I'm shocked about is that everyone else seems to think that dispite doing all the work herself and already paying for the use of the stall, that paying extra to keep your horse IN the stall you have paid for already is normal?

Nope, not normal at all, nor do I find it an acceptable way to do business.

However, I have a feeling the BO wants her and her horse out NOW, so is deliberately forcing her hand with these demands. Which, since she has no written contract, he can legally do.

Moral? No. Legal? Yes.

That makes total sense. I agree and you are right I was foolish for not signing a(n) agreement but, in my defense isn't it the BO's responsibility to have me sign a(n) agreement per boarding there?

It's both of your responsibilities, not just the BO's.

You're just as culpable as he is for getting nothing in writing.

Wherever you next move to, make sure you get your boarding contract read and signed either before or the same day you move the horse there.

When I boarded, I read and signed the contract before the horse got there. That way, I and the BO both knew what was expected of each of us.
