Jacksonville, FL

I'm moving to Jacksonville, Florida next year to continue school and I'm hoping to bring my event horse with me. I've been googling online but I'm not having too much luck. Anyone from the area?

Hi yes I am near there, not really familiar with boarding stables as I am further south, but there are lots of horsey activities here. What type of place are you looking for?

I have some friends in Jax and can probably help you out. You can pm me if you like.

PS where will you be going to school so I can figure out what area of town as Jax is a huge land wise and it can take 45 mins to get from one area to another easily, (traffic isn't bad just a big place) Most farms are south, west and north as east is beach property and the land is too expensive for horse farms.

there are actually quite a few farms right in Mandarin, I have a rental house there. I will ask around of a really good place. I am guessing you would like to have as many amenties as possible? Such as jumps, dressage arena, etc?

If you don't care about the drive, the O'Conner's signature barn is down in Lake City, about an hour and a half, you should call about schooling there, it is amazing! And for a trainer, if you can call Valhalla Farm in Lake City, the trainer's there are absulutly amazing! Just for thoughts

My friend trains 6 months out of the year at Matanzas Farm, from what she says it's very nice and the people are very friendly.
