    Training facility not board?

    So I have been searching around at equestrian facilities in the CA. All of the ones I found that were english always said they provide lessons, showing, coaching etc etc. The had costs blah blah blah but never once did any of them provide a boarding fee yet alone even mention anything about you being able to board.
    Is that standard for a place to only be good if you don't own a horse and only want to lease or ride lesson horses?? Or are you suppose to assume they also board, just don't mention it unless you ask??

    Please help

    Thanks guys.

    Just go ahead and ask! Lessons and training bring in way more money than boarding. They may primarily be lesson/training stables but they may make exceptions, especially if you will be taking lessons, allowing your horse to be used in lessons, or represent the barn at shows.

    I had to switch to taking only boarders who are in lessons/training. It cut way down on transient & non-paying boarders & lots of drama. Where I'm at, it seems to be the trend- ask, they could make an exception, as I have once or twice.

    One place I used to work/ride at required all boarders to take a mimimum of 2 private lessons per month. Most of them took a private lesson a week plus had the owner and the other trainer ride their horses once or twice a week. It was a really nice dressage facility with only 4 school horses. They always had (probably still have!) a long waiting list, even after they doubled their stalls.

    Most places out in my area are ONLY board. There's hardly ones that even offer any type of REAL lessons. I have found a handful or so though that do lessons....almost all the time though they also offer board.

    No, no plans on leaving! My mom is going to be going down there for a couple months and have been playing around with the idea of temporarely going down with her for a couple weeks on and off. Was looking at what the costs would be of bringing my guy down with me that's all

    Thank you for all the love very much appreciated
