I would go with C as well, if you COULD use someone else's arena. Young ones like Aires need room to goof off, and plenty of it :) the only thing I'd worry about is REALLY staying on top of his worming schedual if he's in the same pasture as a bunch of others (boarders, perhaps) because otherwise he might pick something up. Vaccinations too.


I think I'm packing my two girls up and moving to AZ though, the cheapest board that we have in my area is $250 for pasture board with other horses, and they're minis so I can't do that! No seperate feeding either- just 12% sweet feed pellets and a shared round bale for 5-7 horses every three days.

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

I think I like the sound of ranch A.

Endiku, the owners of ranch C deworm and vaccinate regularly and have said that they will vaccinate and deworm Aires along with their horses for the cost of the vaccines and dewormer.

I'd go with C and see how much training I could get for the horse & me. All that SAR stuff they have on their website would be great training!

My biggest concern is that they haven't given me a price yet.

Well, you said it would be between $200 & $250 right? So you have a ballpark? If they come back with something substantially different then I'd probably go with B, I like the bigger corrals and the from the pics that place looks immaculate.

I would personally choose A due to the access to trails, price, and it seems like it would be a low key place. I worry that C would be maybe a little constrictive.
Good luck with what you choose, either way. :)

If it was my horse, being I am a strong believer that a horse should be stalled as little as possible ( mine are never stalled) I would definitely choose Ranch C, it sound like good people, who know what they are doing, and the charge is a lot less then 300 a month. Plus the farrier thing? And it's closer to your house, your horse would be with other horses (like horses love, they are herd animals remember of course)
I wouldn't look twice if it was me.
Ranch A sound kinda sketchy in the stall situation anyway.

Ranch C even offered to trailer him to their property for me. The other two barns, I'd have to figure something out. Texted them to see if they've come up with a price, but no answer yet.
