I may be moving my gelding, Fella soon. My barn manager, instructor, and friend is leaving the barn that she is at due to issues with the current owner. She has been looking to find another local barn in need of a horse trainer and riding instructor and is working on a contract with a place nearby. She took me out to have a look at it for a second opinion....and all I can say is WOW! The facilities we are at now are pretty dumpy, the facilities at the new barn are in almost new condition, safer, nicer in general! And the owner is a rich, older man who (it appears) likes to do things the right way.
Pasture board would be $210/month for feeding 2x a day, their hay and grain (I supply any extras). He would have a stall if needed and he can have his own pasture if needed...we are still trying to determine if he has nightblindness. He currently has one round pen, but my friend will ask him to put up a second one in the contract, one arena, and over two miles of trails and the room to clear more.
It is $30 more a month however, our prices were getting ready to go up anyways at my current barn.
