Boarding in Massachusetts

I will be moving to MA at the end of the summer and I was wondering if anyone knew of boarding facilities near Pepperell MA. I've been looking and all I can find are the big jumping barns that cost close to $1000 if not more. I just graduated from college so I definitely can't afford that. I'm looking for a place that does western/english pleasure or barrel stuff since that's the types of horses I have. And, possibly rough board since I'm pretty particular about how my horses are cared for. Thanks for all your help!!!

LWL have you tried Twin Valley Farm? They are on Brookline St just past the pepperell circle heading to Hollis NH
Its been so long since I lived near Pepperell mass. You could also try Townsend Mass next town over There are alot of small barns in Townsend. There is a small stable on Maple St in pepperell across from Rock Maple Farm Actually stop in and talk to Denise at Rock Maple farm she leases stalls under name South Wind Stables. If I think of some more I will post back to you.

I don't live in that part of the state, but I wanted to chime in - everything in this state is really close! It basically takes 2.5 hours to drive across the state the long-way (more if you want to drive all the way up the cape, or take a boat to the islands), and about 45 minutes the short way. So even if you find a place in a town in the same area, it could be a pretty short drive. My horse technically lives 2 towns over from my house, but it only takes me 12 minutes...15 if I get stuck behind a school bus.

Try posting on on the Massachusetts bulletin board. Lots of people know the smaller places that don't advertise. Lot's of pretty riding areas up there. Other than the cost, I'm sure you'll love it.

You just have to see your don't have to like it.

Don't exclude New Hampshire from your search! You might be able to find a nice barn there that is less expensive. Massachusetts is lovely but unfortunately very costly, if you are coming out to Pepperell before your move you might want to try looking in local tack stores for advertisements, more less expensive barns seem to advertise there than the internet. Good luck!!
