Anyone in Orange County?

I'm just moving out here (south OC, like beach cities) and I am having the HARDEST time finding a boarding barn that isn't like 600 a month. I'm a college student living on my own who can maybe do up to you guys know anywhere??

Your in a bad area for cheap boarding. I have boarded north (up by pomona) and south (bonsall), while staying far away from OC. What do you ride and want the stables to offer for you? I'll look around and see the areas I know.

BTW, look on Craigslist and Those are good places.

Just be careful about paying cheaper. For some reason in LA and Orange county cheaper board=very small amounts of crappy hay for feeding.

I am just now putting weight back onto my horse and my friend's horse. They each lost about 100-150 lbs from the stables refusing to feed more than 2 flakes of crappy hay per day. No amount of grain/supplements was helping. Just so you know. =\

Considering that this is in the english section I would say that you want an english barn.

I know that San Juan Capistrano, is very horsey and there are a lot of stables. One I looked into when I was shopping around was Rancho Sierra Vista They have an amazing stables and 12x24 pipe corrals for $315.

The rest seem expensive or won't even list prices.

Definitely a bad area for being cheap on anything. A few of the places I've looked into only did cubes or seemed pretty sketchy on what they were feeding, so I know what you mean there. And before moving him anywhere, I would definitely check out the feed situation. I'm not going to sacrifice his health to be cheap.

As for what it needs to offer, I am an english rider....low level eventing/mostly jumping and dressage though. But between school and work, I'm probably not going to have much time for anything besides basics so all I really need is a maintained arena.

I've looked around San Juan but haven't had much luck. They were all really expensive or had nothing open for a few months. That one you posted seems kind of perfect though...amazing looking facility and same price as what I'm paying now. They seem pretty knowledgeable too. I'm going to give them a call when I'm finished typing this

Yeah I was a little unprepared for the feed situation. We knew that they only would feed two flakes, but thought we could give grain to help keep up. What they didn't tell us is that it would be the worst quality hay. =\ Now they are getting about 2-3lbs of grain and four flakes of alfalfa a day. They are gaining weight nicely.

You're in the same boat I am in. School, work and horses. I would look into the rancho sierra vista stables. I can't find much else. Good luck!

Hi, I'm also new to the area and wanted to know if you checked out Rancho Sierra Vista? If so, how did you like them? What did you think of their facilities and care and also, of their veterinarian?
Thanks for your input!

Southern California Equestrian Directory

Also Rancho Del Rio in Anaheim...
Sierra Vista is lovely (as lwg has said above)

I'm at the Costa Mesa Equestrian Center (where they hold the OC fair) and our stalls start at $555 a month. That's all inclusive and you're allowed to jump without a trainer present.

Huntington Equestrian is relatively cheap for pipe stalls... however you have to provide your own shavings, and in this area shavings are overpriced!!

Anything in the LA county area will be less expensive. Paramount, Downey, Long Beach, Cerritos, Los Al, and so on.
