Needed Horse Boarding in/near Norman, OK
Looking for a well kept horse boarding stable in or near Norman, OK (within an hr.) Would prefer it to be a smaller more private facility with good grass turnout and open outdoor riding spaces/trails. I am an eventer from the east coast and cannot find a barn in the area with adequate turnout and clean, safe stalls. Can do partial or full care. I have searched and searched online and keep coming up with same 5 or so barns all of which are lesson barns, with no T/O and untidy stalls. If anyone has any advice that would be amazing!

Try Oklahoma Stud Ranch
The facility is amazing. By far superior to any in Oklahoma and rivals most east coast farms. I am from Virginia. I keep my horse here, rates on par with other farms, but private turnouts, heated/cool wash racks, indoor, 2 outdoor. Trust me when I say u will not be disappointed. Google them. They have a web page but do not advertise. Becky and Paul own/operate the farm. They show QH, but allow other disicplines. While the farm is large it is very private and not a lesson barn.

OK Stud Ranch
Thanks for the advice! I ironically had already been e-mailing with Becky finding out more information and hearing that it was a great facility from someone else just solidified it! I plan on checking it out on Sunday!

I was going to wish you good luck. I don't know any facilities in that area, but to find good turn out and pasture during this drought is going to be a challenge.

I'm not sure what you've found already, but here are a few H/J barns I know of.
Feather Creek Farm - Hosting USEA Horse Trials, Schooling Shows, Clinics & More! -never actually been here but I do know eventing is their thing
Home page for Fox Lair Farm, Piedmont, OK -in Piedmont, horse population is around 10 or so last time I was out there, plenty of room. The owner is super nice especially when you get to know her better.
For the Love of Horses -pics are not UTD they are now at the old Hadwell Stables. Loads of room from what i've heard, trainer/owner is fair and runs a clean barn.
Easy J Stables -in Harrah, i've tried 4 horses from this barn, Gia was welcoming and it looked like there was a lot of room, but quite a few horses were there.

There's always Cadence Equestrian Center, last time I was out there it fits everything you want except smaller and more private.
