What do you look for...

I have been working on making a Facebook page under my trainers instruction for our barn, I'm am doing pictures for it soon and was wondering ehatvall would you want to see when looking at a barn to possiable board at or ride at?

Our barn has great features, we specialize in sport horses in the H/J and dressage rings as well as have a team of vaulters and our own vaulting horse George! Right now we have young draft/freisan cross HUGE 18.1 hands named Charlie and he will have to under go alot if training to be able to get there but has the movement and body for the sport!

So I was gathering a list if things to take pictures of

Stalls, isle way, paddocks, pastures, grooming bay, wash rack, tack room, arena and round pen. That's for the facility

Then was thinking of doing a shoot of all the horses with short bios
We will have a vaulting team shoot and a couple shots to pick of the coaches and George :)

Anything else?
Thanks
Sam!

More pictures the better.
I want to see the pastures, the stalls, the tack room, the feed room, the wash rack, the round pens, and the arenas.

The ONLY thing I care about is the level of care provided to the horses. Everything else is pretty for our eyes.

most of the time this can be gauged by the look of the place. To get a real feel of how the horses are actually cared for would be a visit or to talk to some boarders.

To the OP:

Getting some photos of the boarders with their horses would be a good idea. Then get them to tell you a few of the things they like the most about the place would be nice to add under the photos.

The most important thing to me is turnout in larger safe pastures, or 24/7 turnout, and also great overall care. I would like pictures of turnout, shelters, stalls, runs, barns, trails (if any). Also hay, tack, and grain area.

As far as photos, or a facebook page, I like as much info as possible. I like a bio about the stable's "mission" so to speak, what they mainly do there, what majority of the boarders do. A bio of the boarders/horses is a great idea as well! Basically for me, the more pics the better.

When I go to a barn I've been looking at online, I like to almost feel like I've been there before. I also love to see updated facebook pages, but barn hasnt updated theirs in months, and it drives me insane, but that's just me! Good Luck!

What do I look for most.. in a barn is if they offer lessons.. what is their weight limit, so I can see about contacting them for lessons.. most of them don't post weight limits or size limits, or even all they offer, like lessons, or such.. and its not fun to call them to have them tell you there not what you are looking for to begin with, but that's just me

I always look for information about pricing & what's iincluded. Seems like all the barns in my area have different ideas about what full care and partial care mean. Also, if you can get current and/or past boarders to post testimonials, that can go a long way. And take pics of absolutely everything!
