Doggie daycares have webcams, so why not the barn??!! One down the asile, one for each paddock. I'd definitely pay an extra couple of bucks a month for that!!!

Well kept facilities, large stalls with good bedding and good ventilation. Good lighting and safe areas. Large pastures with good grass, safe fencing and large run-in shelters.

Lighted outdoor ring, indoor arena, wash stall, trails & fields, good instructor/trainer, flexible hours, how about a webcam?! Few or no other boarders around when I'm there after work, clean & secure tack room, space for my trunk close to the area that I tie my horse. Oh only in a perfect world could there exist such a place...


So you would want a security cam?? Or just a web cam that you would be able to get online and look at the barn and your horses, or both???

Security cam would be nice, but I was actually thinking of something that I could watch while I'm at work all day! I'd love to log on and watch Noah out in the pasture.

I have boarded at a few places and I would take a little something from them all ... here is what I would want:

- on site knowledgeable owners
- area for turn out with multiple horses or just your horse
- more then one arena (hopefully one is covered)
- stalls with paddocks (the place I am at right now doesn't have very big paddocks and so I would want at least 12X24)
- wash racks
- round pen
- tack room
- a trainer or two on site (i can always use someone picking on my riding :) )
- place to park your trailer
- somewhere to tie your horse up (my mare doesn't do so well in cross ties)
- services offered (blanketing, turn out, graining)
- jumps
- my choice of hay and how much
- bed checks

I think that's it for now :)

Wow, 350 or less is considered cheap! Well about 4 years ago was boreding my horse for 175 full bored. Include grain twice a day, hay, stall, indoor arena, round pen, tailer parking, trails for trail riding, tack room, wash rack, outdoor arena, and the owner was on site. I guess this was a steal!

the place that I am at is $450 for board (if you want extras it is $25 a service) ... the only things I don't like are that we don't have many turn outs and there isn't a covered arena and the paddocks are smaller in the stalls

Any place that had built a Paddock Paradise. Well, and a hot and cold wash rack, maybe an indoor with good footing, and great trails connected to the property. Just dreaming... :)
