When people think of boarding most assume it is because someone who desires to own a horse lacks the property and facilities to appropriately house a horse. While that is a very good reason to board, it is not the only reason.

A lot of people get into horses without fully researching or understanding how much care is involved in general day to day horse husbandry. Day to day, means at the minimum, twice a day, every day, 365 days a year! Many individuals are unable to dedicate that much time or do not wish to dedicate that much time toward horse ownership.

A horse's dietary needs are specific to their age, work load, conditioning, etc... Individuals who lack the time or the ability are good candidates to board their horse.

Horses are sensitive to their surroundings and need appropriate care and handling. They are far more complicated to care for than small animals. It goes much deeper than just having a barn and property for your horse to graze on. The person responsible for the horse needs to be able to recognize abnormal behavior and their causes, be capable to realize if the horse is "off", colicing or otherwise in need of medical care and what to do until it arrives.

Even if only for a few years to work with a trainer,  gain first hand knowledge, boarding is an excellent option.

Many people choose to board for the social aspect. To have others to ride with and have horse related company.
