When looking for a stable what are some things you look for?

When looking for a stable what are some things you look for?
Good people, reasonably safe but significant turn out, an arena with good footing to ride in (and I can jump on my own accord...)
good management, a nice facility, plenty of turnout space, large arena if riding, good trainers, and friendly people who you feel may be trustworthy and know what they are doing
a well managed barn, turnouts, big stalls with paddocks, a arena if you are looking to ride, no nails or safety hazards, the staff to have some knowledge of horse behavior.
Clean field/yard
A lot of space
Well built
Nice horses around your stable
Friendly staff and riders etc
Clean yard
Sensible sized box
Sensible turnout (if offered)
The general atmosphere of the yard - this is different for everyone however. I want somewhere active with lots going on, you however might want quiet with only adults on the yard etc

Space, lightness/airyness , if the horse can see other horses whilst in it, if there is an automatic water dispenser, if there is a hay bar or if haynets are used, if there is matting in the stable already or if it will have to be brought and obviously that it's waterproof lol
Bedding. What your horse prefers and what he needs. Some fatter horses eat straw. Some have respetory issues from sawdust dust.
What do you mean. As in livery or for building yourse
