    Fly control, Pasture subdivided with a run in in each area. SO horses from different owners arnt intermingled. Fields not over grazed. Safe fencing and horse areas. Arena with some obstacles would be nice. Lights would be even better. Over head cover even more so. Round pen, access to trails. SOmewhere to safely store my feed hay and tack.

    I would like to see a barn where it looks like the horses are well taken care of. Doesn't have to be the fanciest, but if all the horses have a good weight to them, and it's a clean place, those are definitely the two biggest things for me. A barn that allows for lots of light. Good turn out spaces are a major plus as well. They don't have to be huge, but just someplace with safe fencing where they can go be horses for a few hours. Those are the major things I'd like to see.

    Hmm, clean, well-lit, owned by knowledgeable people who really care about horses. Pasture board is okay, but I would like to see a lean-to. A nearby or on-site covered/indoor arena is a dealbreaker for me because I live in the rainforest. I'm sure there's tons more that I would look at but a lot of it would be first impressions of the property and horses.

    I'd LOVE a heated barn & indoor heated arena......realistically what I look for is...
    1. The health of the horses currently boarded on property
    2. Clean & well maintained barn & pastures
    3. I perfer 24/7 turn out with stall time for feedings and bad weather as needed.
    4. Willingness to work with feed adjustments & supplements
    5. A locked tack room, accessable to boarders only. I would prefer lockers but small locked tack rooms are ok as well. Where I Board has several small tack rooms that are shared among 2-3 people each. I share with my best friend so I have no issues worrying about my stuff.
    6. Friendly helpful staff, that really care
    7. Ability to go at whatever crazy hours my schedule allows. (current place I text when I get there and text when I leave if it is unusual hours for safety reasons)
    8. Friendly boarders & friendly horses

    Nice HUGE fields with Paddocks as neither of my horses like stalls. I would like my own private tack room. A working bathroom with running water, hot and cold. An indoor arena. A person living on premises. Private riding lessons on your own horse along with driving lessons.. for free! (Yeah right!) Trails trails trails. No screaming little kids. Smiling faces from the other borders.. if there are any! A very nice wash room that would have a huge dryer for the horses in the winter! An emergency kit for not only the borders but for the horses too. Monthly,weekly, or daily trail rides in groups that may or may not help the younger/newer riders and let's the older/ more experienced riders relax and just have fun. Also an emergency evacuation plans for the animals. A place with no BS! That I think would be the perfect facility.
