I'm boarding at Green Savannah Stables in Sumter, SC right now. It's owned by Mr. Bobby and run by his daughter Kelly. I've been here since May of last year (08 ) when I moved to Sumter. I clean stalls to pay for Cope's board, but I also work at the feed store Mr. Bobby owns next door...which is really convenient. We have four barns, and Kelly's personal barn is being built. The block barn is where most of the teen girls that show are, and also where Mr. Bobby's horses are. Each stall in the block barn has a small run (proly 12 X 30 ft?). There are 12 stalls in the wood barn...this is where Kelly's horses are. Three of them have a small run. Two of Kelly's horses have a run and their runs open up to one of the grass pastures. The two stall barn has large dirt runs. Then there's the lower barn (a.k.a. The Ghetto barn or The Redneck barn)...that's where my boy is. We have small pastures attached to our stalls. My friends, Marie and Shannon keep their boys there too. Shannon's got a gaited walking horse named Chester. Marie's got a palomino walking horse (Gatlin) and a belgian (John...or Big John...or Little John...depending on who's calling him). The front arena is sand and it's used for jumping and rail work. The dressage arena is by the wood barn. Right now we have panels going from mama & baby's stall to the dressage arena for easy turn out for them (crazy baby). We have two other grass turn out pastures next to Kelly's pasture. And we also have some trails (not much though). We can go on the trails to get to a friend's barn though (but we only go in groups because we have to cross a busy road and a highway). We're also about 30 minutes from Manchester State Park. Lots of trails there.

In June though David and I are moving to San Antonio, Tx. If anyone knows about some of the boarding facilities there (particularly any information about the facility on Lackland AFB) I'd love to hear it. I've already been to their website...but if anyone's stayed there I'd love to know their thoughts...

Sorry the post was so long. :)

I don't board my horses anywhere. We have stables ourselves at our own place. (Australian I am ;) )

Anyway, our stables consist of a ground floor that house 3 horses. Then above it we have a hay loft, a spare room for any other stuff and then a verandah overlooking our roundyard, 40x20m dressage arena, and our sporting arena. It also overlooks the rest of our propery and our main big dam. On the ground floor we also have our tack room - and behind the wall is our feed room. We have a tank next too stables which we use for watering, feeding etc. It sounds a bit complicated and it won't make much sense. lolol.

I will try and upload some photos soon.

My little farm has four stalls, two are for my horses and one is for our Miniature broodmare (who looks like she is gonna burst any moment lol) It has two small pastures, two larger pastures, and a ring/extra pasture. Our house is over the stalls and the main house is my grandparents. In all it is 5 acres :) It's nothing special, but it's very homie XD

I used to ride at this HUGE farm (which coinsidently happens to be two houses away from mine...small world) which is 90 acres and has a really pretty barn. I wish there was a Hunter/Jumper riding faucility within 40miles of where I live, but there isn't :( just two eventing barns and like two random barns haha I guess I'm the only Hunter/Jumper barn lol

I would be amazing to find a place that nice to ride at...the two nicest places in my area don't even come close to that :O kinda sad really lol

Well, let's see...
I don't currently own my own horse (working on that! =P), but I do take lessons at this here barn. We have...

...80x200 outdoor.
...60x110 indoor.
...10x12 boxes (currently full up).
...a few large pastures, mares and geldings seperated (no stallions allowed).
...round pen.
...tack room.

It is little, but that's why I like it. The owners also live right next to the barn. They can see the horses out their windows. =) They have a farrier scheduled once a month and the horses get trimmed in groups. Everyone is really friendly. Even if you don't know everyone, there's always someone willing to give you pointers for your trot or help you wrap your horse's legs the right way. I love it. =)

If you wanna see pictures you can go here: index (Go to the Boarding tab to see pictures of the barn, etc.)

Nothing special anywhere around here. :( I have a plain old Western style barn. IDK how many acres... 20-30? There is a corral, two barns, two turn out fields, a fenced in area w/ a pond (not allowed to ride in anymore due to holes in the ground) a dead end street-great for mini trail rides.
