When I went to UF, I got up at 4:00am drove to an area north of Ocala, galloped racehorses at a training farm, went back to G'ville for classes, and on easy days spent riding as a working student at an event farm in Alachua. Kept me off the streets and out of the bars at night!

I bet it did Allison! Ha ha. I've found a few maybe barns to check out when I'm up in G'ville again in early June.
I'm going to have two whole days to drive around and check out barns so hopefully I can go see a lot.

Gillian, I just ran across your post and I assume you have already found a place for your horse. My wife and I recently acquired a 20 acre property in Hawthorne with a horse barn. There is a lady who lives on site who has 3 very old horses now (up to 37 years old!). We were interested in finding people who would like to board a horse. We live in south florida though we both graduated from UF. We thought it would be good to have someone who could help take care of any horses we may board, and found the prospect of someone working for their boarding interesting. Unfortunatley it seems that as a full time student it would be difficult for you. Anyway, let me know what your situation is and if there are still any opportunities.

I have a place out in Jonesville that you might like with a lighted arena.

I realize this is a few years late, but chances are you're probably still at UF, so thought I'd pitch in my 2 cents.

These two boarders below are excellent...I don't think they have an option to work for boarding, but if by now your financial situation is different, I'd look into them. They're next to each other and 30 min from UF via newberry rd or 25 min from I-75 and archer if I recall

For stall boarding, The Rockin' C Ranch:

For pasture, the Double L Ranch:

Perhaps I should have started a new thread, I'm not sure.... I'm also looking for a good facility near Gainesville. Currently I have my boy a little south of Ocala, but I think it might be time to move him a bit closer. I'm really just getting my confidence back so I'm riding him in a barrel saddle, but ultimately I'd love to find a trainer who I can work with.
