I'll chime in. I board, by the way.

We have two barns - the large barn and the lesson barn. Large barn is large enough to ride inside of, the small barn has about 10 stalls, cute but small.. has shutters and flowers. The small barn is for the horses either: a. Owned by the owner, b. Quiet, older, need extra attention, or c. Well trained lesson horses. My boy stays in the small barn (With his girlfriend :roll: ) and is used as a lesson horse. There is a standard round pen, a large riding arena, a large pasture with trails and a small pond, a jumping course (fenced in), and another large arena. Several places to ride, but not many riders. Arenas and barns have lights, each barn has cross ties, places to bathe, large tack rooms, ect. There is also a storage unit for shavings.

It seems like almost everyone here boards.....I almost wish I did too, that way I would have some people to ride with *sniff*

Anyway, we have 4 12x12(I think this is right) stalls and one large stall for foaling. It was 2 12x12's but we took the middle wall down to make it bigger. Right now we have a large hay room in the back, but this summer we are going to turn it into another foaling stall. I'm also going to try to talk my dad into expanding the barn AGAIN, so Gypsy will have a stall We built the barn ourselves We have about 12 acres, which is fenced in in several places to keep from over grazing. I'll try to get some pictures soon, we also have a large round pen behind the barn.

FM, I want to see pictures! I love looking at people's barns.. probably because I've always boarded. I wish I could have my horses at my house.

I am really happy boarding...you always have someone there with you! Sometimes though it would be nice to ride alone.

So lets hear it... what's your barn like? Where do you keep your horses? How big is your barn? What do you like to do at your barn when you're not actually riding? Who is your horse's best barn buddy?
I must repeat I'm from Poland becouse there are other customs and maybe habit. Stable where I have a horse isn't big. Its name is KOPYTKO in english HOOFY. There are 12 private horses, which have always fresh water, hay and straw. This is the best stable in our region. There is always clean and calm... I can relax all time when I'm there. I help to stables' owner sweep, rake, water etc and in exchange I pay less for my horse. Everyone who keep their horses in KOPYTKO is my friend. We are in the same age and we really like spend time together whit our horses.

Our Mare Barn


[Visit our website and view the live web cameras at the farm or at the track anytime. See the barn and how a racing stable runs first hand. The best time to watch is 6 to 10 am. Watch for the horse that goes without a bridel. He is our pony horse that escorts the racehorses to and from the track.][www.dallaskeen.com]
