Today's post is a must read for all barn owners and managers who are running a horse boarding business. It is about the pressure that every barn owner and manager will have put on them at one time or another by their boarders when things are not going right at your stable. It could be that the weather has been horrible and it has made for stress in your barn or you might be feeling the pressure to build and add more amenities even though you don't have the money. You could be pressured to feed a different type of hay or do regular farm chores differently so that your boarders are not inconvenienced. The pressure from your clients is stressful and at times can even leave you second guessing your decisions and your knowledge. I never thought about this part of barn management when we first opened our facility but it is very real and alive.
