I've looked around the internet to find a new stable due to the fact that the one I currently board at is too unadvanced for me, but the stables listed have barely any information about them. At our current stable it's a low price of $210 a month and the atmosphere is delightful, but there are no arenas to ride in and they offer no instructors. Most of their 200 acres is used as a pasture and I honestly think it's a waste of land. They have one old barn that has 8 stalls and the owner has recently used the last of his land to build a second one. Due to the fact that I haven't been around horses in 4 years I need to re-learn how to ride and I clearly can't learn if there's no instructors at this stable. I've searched for instructors around my area, but none have appeared. I also need somewhere to learn how to ride besides the one round pen that's always being used by someone else. I need your help with finding some stables around Battle Creek, MI. The maximum price for boarding would have to be $300. Your help is much appreciated.
If you find a stable that you like but is out of your price range, call and see about your options. Sometimes barns will have pasture board that is cheaper, or will even let you work off some of your board. There are many deals to be worked out, so keep an open mind.. it never hurts to ask!!
