Boarding.. is this possible

I am a soon to be horse owner and when I look at all the horses that are being boarded, they are in small enclosures,. Doing nothing. I read that in nature, a horse would be in pasture all day and run around etc. Are there ever situations where there are boarding facilities where a horse can be out to pasture a lot of the day and have tons of room to roam? I don't have my own ranch,. But I'm thinking that private homes that have their horses on them are better off than a commercial place that boards horses.? Can a person find a great place at a private home or a great commercial ranch with pasture, and room to roam? Located in CA, close to Fallbrook, Bonsall and Vista. Thanks

Pasture board can create some of the healthiest horses. Many places offer it.

Lol seems common in CA to have paddocks. Most of my neighbors do it. I see tiny paddocks in Norco, which is huuuuge on horses.

That's why I rented a place w some land. Pasture isnt as big as id like....and its 100 percent dirt, no grazing....but better than a paddock.

You may find a place around here with pasture board, but it might be a bit of a chore!

You'll find that many people prefer their horses on pasture 24/7, or atleast a majority of the day. I do with one of my horses, but I prefer the other to be stalled during the day in summer and out a night. Vice versa in winter, out during the day and in at night.

I haven't come across any boarding facilities that don't turn horses out for most of the day. My horse is turned out for about 12 hours a day on ~1/3 acre. It's not "lots and lots" of space, but it's plenty to graze and run around. I'm in Oregon, and most places I looked at are like this.

That's called a stall or a pen. Some horses need to be in there versus lush pastures for medical reasons.

Or sadly even convenience.

I stall my horse only to eat, otherwise he's outside getting exercise and interacting with other horses

Remember that location probably dictates what is available.. I am in san diego CA. Where the price of land is high
AlexS, stevenson and demonwolfmoon like this.

lol which is why we moved up here (perris/riverside) last month instead of going back home to san diego.

I have an acquaintance with a fam ranch in Vista. Paddocks, about 400 a month if I recall correctly. My MIL boards in san ysidro, I don't think she pays much. Out here board seems cheap, but again, itty bitty paddocks. I don't know about Fallbrook.

Look em up Online - search horse boarding San diego. I just found several but lost them. Unfortunately many people in California have the mindset that a 12 by 30 pen is large enough for a horse to live in. Look for pens at least 70 feet wide on at least one side.

Here are a couple
(Pasture one) Boarding | Bright Valley Farms
(My favoritre! Grass!) Horse Boarding in San Diego, California - Suncoast Farms - Home
(Large paddock) Sundance Hills Equestrian Center - Horse Back Riding in Bonsall San Diego
