Okay, so my mare is currently boarded at a bigger stable, but its more... run down. Cob webs everywhere, some fencing on some parts are unsafe, the wood on the inside of the stalls are slowly rotting, and some have been kicked out, ect.
Don't get me wrong, its a pretty good place. The owner trains the horses, feeds, and shows some of them. Theres around i'd say... 56 horses there. He has a outside roundpin, but its ueven and mostly grass, and next to a very noisy heard of cattle. But recently i've went and checked out another stable that is maybe 20 minutes away. The other barn is 1hour away. The new stable isnt as big, but goodness... its beautiful! The barn has concrete flooring, big stalls, rubber mats in them, and they get groomed each day. I also have a better "vibe" here, I feel alot more comfortable, and feel more comfortable having my horse there.
They train every type, and currently have 2 matching welsh pony's, a beautiful friesian, and a paint hunter pony. I am currently paying $1000 monthly per horse at the stable im at now. The new stable, is only $550!
