    I'm essentially asking if boarders are responsible for paying for repairs if their horse breaks something? I understand if their horse breaks a fence once or twice.

    I'm not boarding, but I'm still wondering, for future reference how much should it cost? what should it provide? Food and water, field and shelter, blanket and fly mask, bug spray. What else? should you charge them for their horses to use your blankets, halter, lead, etc? In the cost of...
