Do you know where you are going to live? It will help people to give you suggestions. If you are willing to go more south, into VA, then you would be able to find affordable boarding, there are places in MD towards the 301 bridge that may also fall into your price range.

Are you military? Quantico has a riding club that you could look into (on the VA side)....

Thanks for the advice. I have no idea where I am going to live yet, just trying to put out feelers.

evilamc, That sounds great! I'm not looking for anything super fancy, just clean, safe, and with good areas to ride. I will look up the area. Does your barn have a website?

AS has been said, the father from DC the less it is....especially on the MD side, like perhaps Bowie, Upper Marlboro.....but, I am not sure where you will commute to for work, which may somewhat translate into where you will live because certain commutes are really hateful. I will tell you that generally, in Va the most expensive counties are Fairfax and Loudoun. In MD they would be Howard and Montgomery. Columbia Horse Center is in Howard. It is fairly close in, and is a HUGE facility. Even with all of their arenas they have a large lesson program, and I found it tough to ride sometimes..... Granted, it has been a number of years since I was there, but I can assure you that the attitude of the people in that area and the size and scope of the facility has not changed. Quite different from Southern MD.

I would check out the Equiery. It will be coming out in a few days for August, and is available on line. There are a number of smaller private farms where you may be able to help out and get a break on board.....

Got to thinking-field board is few and far between, from my experience, but this place is a great eventing barn, and offers field board....perhaps you could work off the $100 a month difference....IF they don't have a waiting list......Yes, it is Montgomery county, and a convenient location.

No we don't have a website for mine but a lot of the other barns in the area do. Virginia Equestrian.com has links to a lot in fairfax station. If you're interested in more info about where I'm at though PM me!

Definitely check out VAEquestrian, I live on that website. I look for tack, boarding, farriers, clubs, shows & events, and even found my horse on there. Definitely a great resource.

If you're around Frederick and your horse is an easy keeper, you can find decent board for as little as $200/mo for partial care. There's places that dip as low as $150, but the few I looked at were a little scary -- one place didn't believe in vaccinations!

They must have a lot explaining to do!
