Boarding recommendations - Portland OR

i'm looking to move out of Reno in the next few months and one of the places i'm considering is Portland. any info on the equine scene in the area as well as barns and what's typical for boarding would be great to know.

thanks in advance!

I board my horse at a barn in Banks, about 30-45 minutes west of Portland. $325 for full care (and I mean full, all feed included) I have only been there once or twice but they have multiple arenas, an indoor round pen, plenty of turnout and plenty of storage for hay (If you want to provide your own which reduces the price of board). The owner has been great working with me and this long distance horse boarding deal. My trainer also boards there. He also does natural hoof trimming.

There are some beautiful areas around there. How far would you be willing to travel? Do you have *any* idea yet what part of Portland you might be settling in?

well... we're driving up this weekend to look around and are going to be staying in Wilsonville. as is, i currently commute ~35 miles each way for work so i'm not opposed to a reasonable commute to barn/work/home.

If you happen to find yourself in the Newberg area, I would suggest stopping in at either the WILCO farm store and asking for Dave or the Farm Gro Supply store and asking for Lottie (I am 99.9% sure that is her name - she is the owner of Farm Gro). Either would be able to offer some wonderful suggestions/recommendations. The area, overall, is very "horsey" - I miss it terribly - but I have been gone from there long enough that I am not comfortable throwing out names/places as I'm not sure who is/isn't still open and under the same management, kwim? Actually, the folks at any of the WILCO stores (there are several locations scattered about that area) should be great for referrals/ideas - if Rick Flannigan is still managing for them (I think he was at the Oregon City store last time I talked to him), he's another great brain to pick and get you hooked up with the right network of folks.
Are you looking for full or self-care arrangements? Yahmill County (McMinnville area - probably 45 minutes to the close side of the Portland metro - I could get from my place to my grandmother's in Aloha in about that time or, clear out to St. Helens in just under an hour because I could avoid the main traffic - like I said, it's going to depend a lot on where you end up -- the St Helens/Warren area is nice if you end up working on that side of Portland) has boarding offered through their fairgrounds and, from what I have seen and heard, the facility is pretty darn nice - but it's all self-care.
