OK... Hi everyone! I am new to this forum, but I need your help so... Quick intro... My name is Amanda, I have an amazing 14 yo QH mare named Rebel, I've lived in MI almost my whole life, but I recently got engaged to my boyfriend who is in the US Coast Guard. We are getting married in August and I am moving down to North Carolina in early September. We will be living somewhere between Elizabeth City, NC and Norfolk, VA. The thing is... Rebel is coming with me and I need to find a barn! If anyone lives near there and knows a good barn, or if anyone boards their horse anywhere in that area, PLEASE tell me!

Rebel is a very well behaved horse and she doesn't kick or chew in the stall. We ride in a very relaxed, queit manner. She never bucks, takes off or rears and I never yell, yank the reigns, kick, or whip. We don't really show so I don't necessarily need a fancy show barn (Although, if there is one that would accept a non-shower, that would be fine too). Just a place with nice stalls, outside turnout with water always available, good hay, and space to ride. If I can I would love to have her in a big grassy paddock (she has been confined to a small dirt paddock for the last 10 years)and I would love to have an indoor arena for days with bad weather. I also love trail riding so if there are trails on or near the property that would be amazing.

Again, this can be anywhere near E-city, NC or Norfolk, VA or anywhere in between! If you have any questions or any information for me, PLEASE e-mail me at:

HI Amanda,

I am in Yanceyville, NC, near the border of VA right below Danville, VA. I board at a barn that has nice pastures and trails but not much of an arena (they have been working on it for a year) and no indoor. The hay is good but board is costing me $500/mo which is too expensive for me and what I need right now.

Have you checked to see if the Naval Base in Norfolk has stables? Many military bases have stables, I know there have been several people on another forum who are military or who's spouses are military and they have been able to board on base.

How often would you want to visit your horse? We would be too far for you to even visit once a week.

Here is a link that might help you out:

Good luck and let me know if there is anything else I can do for you.
