[RC] Should I take on a boarder? - Equine Law Online

Insurance can be a major issue.  Your insurance company may view boarding as a 
business, and either not cover the situation, or just you for a business 
policy.  One way around this is if the boarder can get you listed as an "also 
insured" on their policy.

I would also like to make sure that a boarder had health insurance.

I've had clients have good experience with this.  I've also seen it really 
bomb.  Remember that all of the problems that boarding stables can have 
(boarders that don't pay, don't show up, handle their horses wrong, et cetera, 
et cetera, et cetera) only need one boarder to have happen.  Is the risk of 
things going wrong worth the benefits of having a boarder?  Only you can decide.

Even for a one horse barn, I would recommend a boarding contract.
