the stable hunt is on ...ick

Gosh I hated this the first time...but I'm really desperate to get him out hopefully this month if possible.

If anyone knows of any GOOD horse stables in NY (possibly no more than 30 minutes away from 12065.......or 15 minutes away from 12305) that has PASTURE BOARD.
I don't like a horse in a stall ever, and Sonny's a weaver so he'd wear his hooves down if in a stall for a long time.

Currently I looked at

Please post your opinions/concerns about each. I will be getting an appointment to go out and see the stables so I'll be able to ask questions about their facilities. Both stables I've been too before, and both are nicely kept. Both have an indoor and outdoor.

this place looks nice... too bad there isnt a indoor to play in. The best thing would be to take a drive and check the barns out and find out everything from head to toe...

I like the last two, but I think the first one they will want to train your horse for you from what I saw of the parts of their website that actually worked.

I like the second because they have many different facilities. The second has an indoor arena that I think you might need in NY, but the third doesn't have one...

I'm liking the second one the best so far.

I don't mind if I don't have an indoor...the winters have been so boring these years that I could really ride outside all the time lol

The more I'm thinking...I think the 1st one is out of the question...the road to the place is HORRIBLE and as paranoid as I am I wouldn't want to drive that's a single lane rocky road...a hill going up on one side...and a hill going DOWN (really far down) on the other.

I heard back from the 3rd one and e-mailed back to see if I can go and take a look on Sunday afternoonish. She seems really nice through e-mails, and her belief on horsecare is the same as mine....she doens't like halters left on horses...neither do I...the horses get UNLIMITED hay which I LOVE hehe.
The horses have access to 40 acres of pasture in the summer months and in the winter they are moved to a smaller 2.5 acre pasture with run-in-sheds. She says that the bigger pastures don't have run-in-sheds, but there is shade for them to stand in

The place sounds nice even though it doesn't have an indoor..but like I said I'd live without an indoor as long as Sonny was happy and well taken care of

Sounds good, I just didn't like the first one all that much...

Just curious...what was your reason for not liking it?

Sonny, I think the first one you posted would coerce you into riding dressage (nothing wrong with dressage, but I know you like to ride western) - - The second place isn't bad looking, but it appears that she teaches A LOT and if you look at the pictures of the lesson folks, they don't look all that great (so not sure you would actually learn anything from her - - could be a bad picture, but still) Also noticed that a few of her horses on her site were ribby.

The third place I really really like. Seems really laid back and concerned for the horse's safety.

Good luck in your search!

I went to the Schyler Creek Stables today.....
AND OMG I LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!

There was nothing that I didn't like about it. The pastures looked safe and secure....the horses were healthy and happy...the only horse that was ribby was a 30 year old TB that can't digest anything so he was going to be put down next week :(
The horses get unlimited hay and fresh water...the water was clean and no algea (huge plus since Sonny's water is icky and I have to clean it myself)
She has two 20 acre pastures, that the horses are put in....she changes them so the grass isn't eaten down, etc.
The outdoor arena is nice, the footing looks great. They have a HUGE roundpen...twice the size of the one that there is now at my stables. No indoor. The roundpen is lit so I can ride at night.
Nice clean tack room
Access to a pool if I get hot and sweaty (big plus for me lol)
Access to the BOs house to get soda, use the restroom, and can just sit on the porch and read.

I think that this place is the one! The BO was REALLLLLLLLLLY nice....
The board is only $300 a month which includes worming AND grain (MY choice of grain)
