Looking for boarding in MN!

Hello, i am looking for boarding near the woodbury/cottage grove area of mn. I am looking for pasture board, but i am open to stall w/turnout if it isn't too expensive. I am just looking for somewhere that i would be able to pay off board, and have someone tell me what it is really like at the barn! Thanks!

I'm on the opposite side of the cities from you, but you have some great options over there!

My friend really liked Mel-O-Dee stables in WBL when she owned her horse, she said it was by far the best quality care for the price she could get on that side of town.

Windy Ridge is over by you, which I've heard good things about as well.

Bob Jansen stables and Sunborn stables are not too far from you, I know both are excellent barns.

Okay, do you know if any of these places have websites? Or where they are located? Thanks!

What's your price limit? There's a stable in Woodbury I believe but they only have stall board. You will be looking at a pretty penny for most places on this side of the cities. Look at craigslist tons of nice places advertise there.

OK thanks. I don't really have a price range as long as i can work off whatever that price might be... Otherwise really cheap haha.

Ah good luck. I pay 175 for paddock and I haven't seen anything cheaper in the area.

I board at Mel-O-Dee Stables in White Bear Lake and really like it. Their website is melodeestable.com. Stall board is the only available option, $285-$295.

You could check out Midnight Sun: Midnight Sun Enterprises

They are in your area, and they have (or had a couple years ago when I stopped out to visit a friend who boards there) a very nice facility and good, safe fencing. I don't know the board price, though.

I have never heard anything but horror stories about the quality of care or instruction at Mel-O-Dee or Windy Ridge. I would never take a horse to either of those places.
