Hi, I used to be on another horse forum and I found it to be very helpful and interesting and I'm hoping this will be the same. It's great to get some real life experiences people have had rather than trying to Google my questions. I've had horses most of my life and have had one for the last 12 years. My daughter also rides and has two horses. We ride mostly western and do some local showing. At this time we board but we have had our own place, which we really miss.
Thank you! We live near Calgary and it's a few years since we had our own horse property. The plus side of boarding is the indoor arena, not having to go out in the cold and feed, and the social aspect of it. The down side is someone else's rules, not having as close of a relationship with our horses, and the drama with the boarders.
