    Default One barn in Winter/Another barn in Summer

    For those of you who move your horse(s) to one facility in the winter (to have access to an indoor, etc) and then move them to another facility in the summer (w/o indoor, etc)...

    How do you go about holding your "spot" at each of the farms?

    At our barn the BO typically wants half the board, which is about $185. Sometimes she can find someone who wants the opposite so the two just keep switching every year. Like Owner A is there in the summer and owner B is there in the winter.

    My barn charges $100 a month to hold the stall. Worth it to me!

    We're lucky enough that the summer place appreciates the break. They are farmers and travel sometimes in the winter, our being gone makes that easier for them. So they don't require anything to hold the stall.

    The winter place is available if they have stalls available. If they are full, we wouldn't be moving. Winter place is private farm with a very few boarders and they are picky about who they want at the barn. So far it's worked out for all of us

    They don't hold a spot for me - I just take my chances. On the onther hand, I pay my bills on time, am respectful of others and clean up after myself and my horse. I've been told I am always welcome at either facility, due to no drama.
