    Default Honoring Boarding Contract

    I am at a facility with 2 barn managers. They each have "shifts" at the barn. We just heard today that one of the managers is leaving at the end of the month. Do you think that would void our boarding contract?

    NO. Your contract is with the barn, not the managers unless they are owners.

    Doubtful. Barns have people leave or get fired all the time - your contract is with the farm or the farm owner. Who they have on staff shouldn't have anything to do with it.

    Is the remaining BM covering both shifts? Maybe a temporary employee? Do you think the contract is void due to one shift being not being worked? It could be possible the barn owner is trying to find someone.

    I guess it depends on your specific contract, but any contract I've seen wouldn't be voided by this as long as the level of care does not suffer.

    They rent the facility.The manager that is leaving is the horse person of the team. The manager staying has little horse experience and has a full time job. I dont feel comfortable leaving my horse in her care.

    Then you need to give 30 days notice now and start looking for a new place.

    Exactly, just because you give 30 days notice, it doesn't mean you have to stay the 30 days- just pay the board to cover that time. So give your notice, find a new place and leave when needed.
