Miss you too, but it won't be for a while...probably not until summer. Depends on Rob's engineering job.

I'm in a similar boat, although I'm already in the KC area. My horse is currently at Misty River in Independence (Misty River Equestrian Center Stables | Independence, Missouri), and we LOVE it there, so if you're going to be in that area I'd highly, highly recommend it. I'm actually really reluctant to leave it (and I might decide not to!) but my hubby and I are considering moving to Parkville and it would be a really long drive. So I'm scouting the options up north.

I came across this thread while searching for more info on Northridge Farm - drove by it and it looks impressive. I haven't found a web site for them, but I did find a Facebook page.

It's also really close to Woodson Hill (Woodson Hill Equestrian Center, Horse Boarding and Training in Kansas City) and Pine Hill (PINE HILL FARM - Home). I'm meeting with Elizabeth at Woodson Hill this weekend, and the barn sounds like a really great place but they don't have any openings at the moment. I've also spoken with Nancy at Pine Hill by e-mail and they are currently full as well.

I was just at Sue BD this morning, and that barn looks great too. They have one pasture spot open right now, and she said there may be a stall spot opening in June. The outdoor arena is smaller than what I'm used to, but there's plenty of other room to ride on the property (240 acres and they keep the trails well-maintained). Sue was great to talk to and I was also able to talk with another boarder while I was there. She had nothing but good things to say about the care of the horses, and the people who board there. The location isn't quite as convenient for me as the other three barns, but it's certainly not too far out of the way, and I'd feel confident about putting my picky mare out there.

As far as Oak Creek North goes, I don't know anything about it first-hand but I did see some pretty nasty reviews online. Hard to say what's true and what's not, though. I'm planning to take a look at it in person soon, although I like the location of the other barns better.

Someone mentioned Holsman stable, which is much further south and east than the other barns you noted, but I would recommend considering it if the location works for you. I looked at it a few years ago when it was still Lone Star Ranch, and would have absolutely put my horse there if it had been closer to my house. The facilities were in great shape, and the staff was great when I toured through it. I know it was recently bought by someone else, but I just looked at their web site and the barn manager is Ramon Guzman, who was at Misty River when I first got there. He was absolutely fantastic - - loved the horses and took amazing care of them, was very friendly and fun to talk to. It's close to the riding trails at Longview Lake, which includes the Longview Horse Park and cross-country course.

Hope that all helps! I don't know if you want to stay in just the northland area, but I'm familiar with a few other barns in the east KC area. If you've been looking in that area also, I might be able to offer an opinion or more info.

And if you do find other barns up north, let me know so I can check them out too!!

Thanks for the input. Sounds like it's hard to get into SueBD and that is currently my #1 choice because I love the fact that they have their own trails and seem a bit more relaxed and fun for both me and my 13 YO. I'm hoping to drive out there sometime in a month or so and really check everything out.
