Can't have staff interacting with boarders? Do the staff have to bow to the boarders too? What an archaic attitude! When I was a child/teen I had to work at the barns to help pay for my horses' keep, and that was half a century ago!I recently (several months ago) interviewed at a place where the owner was like this. She had just opened a new boarding facility which is absolutely beautiful. I wanted a part time job there, and after she offered me the job I inquired about boarding my own horses there once I acquired them. She said that she would not have staff interacting with boarders, so I could not board there. I declined the job. I see the ad for that same job posted every two weeks or so because she cannot keep staff whether it is barn staff, office, or trainers.
I say move if you can.
Around here if boarders don't help out around the place, they are asked to move...
