the atmosphere isn't great. everyone is snobby :( and i figured they would be as they are the only barn in this area and everyone has money. i found two people a younger girl in her teens and older women in her 40s who board and said if they had another barn near here they would go there. this place just wants your money and wants to get what they can from you. and they said alot of theft happens :( so i will not be going there.
plus the BO was really nasty. didn't have people skills at all. was actually really dissappointed that there were so many negatives.

i just want more time with my horses grrr... i love my families farm and would love something like that. hmm i will check out craigs list hopefully better luck on there.

I'm not sure where you are in New Jersey but I lived in Cumberland county and right down the street there was a farm that boarded for around 275. Of course that was years ago. I think it's much cheaper in South jersey. Even in the outskirts of Philadelphia is cheaper then up by NYC. I live in central PA now and I pay 300 for two horses full care pasture boarding, stall in bad weather. (Nether of my horses really like stalls) 200+ acres, lots of trails, outdoor arena, BO living on premises, in door being built. If you look you will find! You could always post on craigslist. It's how I found my current farm and I love it!

i just wanted to try and be able to work them more regularly to be conditioned properly for next year. and with them being at our farm with full turnout 24/7 its not really helping with all the traffic during the commute to get back there at a decent time. :(

i was just hoping to maybe find something close to where my apartment was to keep riding and hanging out with them. but oh well i think i am just gonna keep them where they are they seem to enjoy it :)

Well, one is $450, full care. Feeding twice day, turnout only summer, one indoor arena, all teenagers, tight stiff uncomfortable enviroment, all the horses are usually tense.. Stalls with runs.

Two $90, but you provide feed, they feed. One has only one arena and the horses live in like quarter acre paddocks with other horses usually. Other has a private stall run, like 180 foot run, indoor/outdoor arena, 3 roundpens, no turnout either of them.

Other places I don't know the price of..
