Affordable Boarding in Washington DC Area

I am looking for field boarding for my Thoroughbred/Trakehner mare in the DC, Southern Maryland area.

Would like a barn that has decent a arena or ring with jumps. CC field with jumps would be great too. Near trails would be a plus.

I would also like to be around an eventing type community so that I could take lessons and show.

I can't afford more than $300/month.

Am willing to work off part of my boarding fees. Also wouldn't mind boarding at a private residence.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Kacee, unfortunately I'm not in So MD, so can't advice any place, but have you checked Equiery? We also have number of local groups (MDHorsePerson, MDHorsePeople) you may want to contact: I know some folks live that direction.

Eh, the closer to DC the more expensive it's going to be, I'm afraid.

For what you want (arena, CC field with jumps, near trails) it's going to cost a lot more than $300 a month, and most high end barns with those amenities aren't about to let someone work off board.

Either you set your sights much lower, or expect to pay at the very least $500-$600 a month.

I'm afraid the only nice barns I know are from $500-600..

If you can afford $550 there is an amazing barn that my horse has been boarded at. Lovely trails, lovely arenas, trotters track, nice stalls.

Probably going to have to set my sights lower. Right now it is more important to me to be saving to buy my own farm versus spending a lot on boarding at a super nice barn. Maybe I'll be able to trailer in for lessons somewhere every now and then.

Thanks for the advice!

The DC area is expensive..no getting around that. I board at Columbia Horse Center in Laurel MD about 30 mins out of DC proper. Two indoor arenas, two outdoor arenas, trails and a beginner/novice event course ( shortened) on property. Board is 625 but includes full care. The barn has a working student program and I think people can work off board but can definitely work off lesson. Time; Horse Centers - Horse Lessons - Riding Lessons & Camps - Horse Leasing - Horse Camps - Maryland Horseback Riding Lessons

How far is Fairfax Station, VA from you? Theres a few, including where I keep my guy, that do co-op board for 300-350 a month, and we have rings and trails. My barn doesn't have a super fancy ring, but it works, theres a couple near by with nicer rings though.

Good luck! It's expensive out here! Once you are settled if you want to trail ride, let me know :). I know a ton of trails!
