We moved to Birds Hill Park a year ago, and while I love the trails, I am SICK of the barn. It's a commercial enterprise for idiot city slickers to come and pretend to be country and annoy all of us. Half the help is useless and has been caught mistreating our horses. They feed moldy hay and we get treated with total disrespect. I've had to pay extra for a box stall and feed because of Jynxy's weight problem thanks to their crummy feed. The only reason we stayed? The cheapest arena available, that's dusty 24/7, frozen in winter and going to be FLOODED in spring because it's a POS. We've barely used it and it's hotter then Hades in summer, with NO outdoor ring. Between Zierra's outdoor board, Jynxy's box stall and food, I am paying $545 a month for two horses. By selling Jynx, I calculated I'd save $250 a month in board.
I found an AWESOME place! It has no indoor arena, but it has a heated barn and EIGHTY ACRES of beautiful grass and room for my beloved girls to be HORSES again (they're stuck in itty bitty clay paddocks and haven't seen grass in a year). Outdoor board is only $150 a month, so I'd be saving $245 a month, THE COST OF SELLING JYNX AND SAVING ON BOARD. They're only a couple miles from the place we board now, so we still have access to the trails (I have a truck and trailer anyway). I chatted to the woman for half an hour and she sounds AMAZING. She breeds Warmbloods and rides Dressage, and is fairly well known in the community (hear her name a lot).
We go see it on Sunday, and unless something shocking pops up, will be moving as of April!
