But I wanted to get some input from people who have experience with them. Thank you :).
I board at OHC and I love it there. I boarded there also years ago, only reason I left was to board closer to home. The barn I moved to had way to much drama though so I am back at OHC. I have a regular box stall but I am out daily (that is before I had knee surgery, but will return to my daily schedule as soon as I am walking again) great people, great place, and they are adding on a new boarders only arena that will not be available to show people (may be rented out by ride groups with knowledge of boarders also being aloud in) so we will have 5 arenas along with all the field space to ride in. I feel that in this area you can't really get much better than this. Infact a friend I had made at the barn had moved here from alaska and specificly chose eugene for the Oregon Horse Center. Oh and they are going to be installing cameras in the barn (being such a large and well known facility with so many shows you can never be too safe) I am very fond of this as I had had hay stollen (which can happen at any barn) anyhow I am in a locked hay stall now with a couple other people. But adding the cameras will still be nice. They certainly do go over and beyond for their boardes. For example: I've been away due to my surgery and I had several friends eager to help care for my horse and she had gotten fed twice a couple days (my mistake) so I made it clear to everyone to first contact me before doing anything with my horse. OHC had heard about this so they put a note from the office on my stall stating that no one is to do anything with my horse without first contacting me. Like I said ?over and beyond!" :) very happy there! :) Any questions feel free to ask me. And feel free to call the office and ask them any questions as well. They are very nice people. :) hope this helps with your decision :)
