Considerations for letting others board?
If an acquaintance or friend were paying me to board, even if it was self-service, I worry would the insurance costs, since they could consider it for business purposes. I am curious about trading so that money doesn't exchange hands, would you agree that helps? More like helping a friend and they help me with something. I would have reason to believe they are trustworthy.
I'm wondering what else I need to consider, especially anything bigger that is not just needing a legal clause for protection. They would see the location first and I would meet their horse(s) before agreeing. I would want some rules about giving me notice before they show up, or certain timeframes they were allowed to show up.
Of course I would cover myself legally too. I would want them to sign a written contract that I'm not responsible for medical care, that they have to bring their own supplies OR pay in advance for all expenses (depending on the type of agreement), they have to pay for damage, and that I have certain permissions in case of emergencies. Get them to provide medical records, multiple emergency contact numbers. I have liability insurance but hope that would never be used.
