I board at Green Gables boarding and riding facility, owned and operated by Ginger in Valley Alabama. I love it there! I live over 30 miles away but it was the best that I had found. Board is $300 a month for stall board and turnout at night. There are 12 12x12 stalls, all with windows. There is a tack room that has a bathroom in it, a wash rack with cold and hot water, 5 pastures, last pasture keeps the pastured horses. There is a good size arena in pasture one ticked into the far corner. A round pen by the barn and a hot walker right by it. The place is on an old plantation farm, still has the slave house, a one room school house, and the original plantation home that the owner and her family live in. There are countless miles of trails and streams to cross. We constantly meet up with other people who use her trails and we all ride together. I am a beginner and they've all been tackling me and training me. I've found this most helpful because I can take what they all say and adapt it to what works for me. There were closer cheaper places to me, but this was the best I found. My girl is 13 and was ribby when I bought her. They've been fattening her up for me. They noticed something wrong with her back legs and called out 2 different farriers, vet is coming in two weeks. One reason I picked this place was because they have 3 very old horses that all look really good.

I would rather ride my horse than my husband; She's funner and doesn't expect anything in return!

there is also another pasture that she is currently using for hay since she doesn't have many pastured horses right now.

Hi, I am opening my boarding and lesson barn in Middletown, CT on March 1st. It is located on a former 60 acre dairy farm. I share the farm with a Therapeutic Riding facility, which happens to be my other job- very conveniently located! My barn is 6 stalls, 6 acres, ring, trails etc. Needs lots of clean up inside but is a fairly new building with large stalls. Once I get the cobwebs out and paint the common areas I will post pictures. BEAR PAW BARN - Horse Boarding and Riding Lessons in Middletown, Connecticut

I keep my horse at a private stable that belongs to a friend of ours. It has six stalls, five of which are occupied. It was just built in January, so there are some things it still needs, but it's getting there! We have 5 acres of pasture, and the horses get 24 hour turnout with 24 hour access to their stalls. We have hot and cold running water, an office with a fridge, microwave, and couches, a bathroom with a shower, a tack room, and a feed room. We also just got matching stall signs with all the horses' names on them. The stalls are 12x12 with mats, shavings, fans, and automatic waterers. We have another paddock near the main pasture, which we use for general riding and lessons but next year we're putting in a covered arena. We're working on getting a round pen. It's only a matter of time. :]

Here are a few pictures I've got. They are, respectively:

- all the stalls
- the feed room
- the tack room

I ride at Sweet Hills, on LI, NY. It has the one big barn which houses the hack and school horses that the stable owns. Then it has 4 boarder barns, one of which is full service. It has at least 10 turn outs, a decent sized indoor, and 3 outdoor arenas. It is adjacent to a beautiful network of trails on state owned preserve. For the full service board, which includes grooming and riding of the horses it is $1k a month, and for the other board, which includes feeding, clean stalls, turning out, and blanketing, it is $800 a month. Each boarder gets there own shed for tack which has a lock on it.

I board my mare at Fish Creek Farm in Arlington, Washington. It's about 10-15 minutes away from my house. I like it because it's small enough that each person gets individual attention, but big enough that if there is ever any problem you can find someone to help you. The owners take good care of their horses and the boarders'. If anything at all happens (they move your horse to a different pasture, she looses a shoe, gets injured, or they're in any way concerned) Beverly (one of the owners) gives you a personal phone call to keep you "in the loop". Everybody is willing to lend a helping hand and a piece of advice. The other owner, Dick, even gave me advice on different brands when I was buying my first blanket. Because Hray is my first horse and none of my family is involved in equestrian activities it's important that I can ask the people around me questions and get knowledgeable opinions.
Their qualities include:
- 60 acre facility
- 60ft x 140ft lighted covered arena
- 100ft x 200ft lighted outdoor arena
- 50ft solid wall round pen
- 40ft hot walker
- Hot wash rack
- Individual tack rooms
- 32 matted 10ft x 12ft stalls
- 18 semi-private pastures
- A 12 acre group pasture
- Over 2 miles of horse trails on site and access to miles of trails on adjacent properties
- Open 24/7, 365 days a year
- Owners have over 30 years experience
- Trainer Dory Jackson has over 20 years experience
- Supports the Snohomish County 4H Program, the American Endurance Riders Conference, and the Pacific Northwest Endurance Riders
This info can all be found on the website.
I use the semi-private pasture boarding for $300 a month.
However, I don't use the trainer.
Also, check out the stud, CCA Balistik. He's one utterly gorgeous Arabian.

I get to pet that every time I go into the barn.
