Borrowing horses in any capacity carries risks. How should you best address this issue as the owner of the property or boarding facility or as the person loaning or borrowing the horse?
No matter what is said, unless you have written permission from the horse's owner that an individual can remove the horse from your property, it should not leave.
You know a boarder is supposed to be out of town soon, but today a stranger is at your facility grooming the boarder's horse. What should you do?
What should happen to keep your business or farm legally 'safe' if you see someone you don't know riding a boarder's horse?
You owe your licensee/guests a “moderate duty of care” for their safety. This is defined as a duty to warn of any dangerous conditions known to the owner of the property, but potentially unknown to the licensee/guest.
Decide ahead of time if your horses will be used by outside instructors and what the fee structure will be.
Choosing a fee structure for outside riding instructors is key to the success of this venture for your equine business.
Finding the right outside equine trainer or riding instructor is as important as having the right tax structure established.
Since spring and early summer are the key times to hire additional employees, Stable Management brought you a series of nine articles to help you find, evaluate, interview and hire the right employee for the job.
If you own or manage a horse farm or riding stable, or if you are a riding instructor, please take the time to give your opinions on Stable Management's 2018 Fees Survey.
