Looking for boarding in Gainesville, FL

I'm looking for a new place to pasture board my horse in or near Gainesville, FL. My horse is a sweet older gelding and I just need a place with a relaxed environment where I can go have fun with him a few times a week. Oh, and it needs to be $350 or less. I'll be very grateful for any help anyone can give me.

Anyone? I really need my horse out of his current environment. I'm willing to go as far as Ocala.

If you haven't found a place yet...I have a friend that works at and boards her horse at a farm called Eponina Training Farms. It's a nice place and only about 20 miles from Gainesville in Reddick. I know full board is about $425. Not sure if they offer just pasture board but it wouldn't hurt to call.

I don't know of anywhere, but I went to school in Gainesville and know some horse people. I'm going to ask them and get back to you :)

Thanks, both of you. :) I think I've found a place to move, but I'm having some doubts about it.

I'll look into Eponina Training Farms. I'm surprised I've never heard of them. And SammysMom, I will appreciate any leads. I've been looking at a bunch of places and it's pretty scary what people think is okay...

Always take the time to think about it if you have any doubts.. I had the same issue when I was looking for a place to board my gelding. People were directing me to places that were just not up to my standards. I ended up paying over $700 for board, just to be at a nice place.. never move to tampa lol. Way too expensive over here :P
I attached some other places that I found, just in case. Nothing fancy, but they look clean

In case you're still looking, my friend (the woman who runs the rescue I adopted my pit bull from) says she boards at Greener Pastures and LOVES it. :)
