Horses coming from France..
Hi everybody,
As my nickname suggests it...I'm french and I am planning to live In New York area soon..In fact my fiancé had a professional opportunity and he will be working there at least 3 years.
Of course, I am well aware of the difficulties of horse import in The USA. Besides, I am looking for a place where I could set my two horses up where they could be turned out everyday. I don't know exactly the place we will be located yet.
Would you give me an idea of the price an average? What kind of services the barns usually provide?

Thanks a lot

ahh cool french!! J'aime parler français ! Je ne suis pas très bon * lui bien que.

Well anyways back on subject. If you want full service board which USUALLY includes feeding, stall cleaning, sometimes turnout, and watering then you can probably expect to pay something from 300-600 probably more around 600 in New York. Barns in my area usually provide feeding, cleaning, watering, sometimes turnout, and sometimes exercising. Depending on what you want.

J'espère que vous aimez l'Amérique! :D

Thanks for your reply!
I 'd rather a friendly place, like a farm I don't like the "equestrian competition ambiance".
It is very important that my horses are outside, they would feel bad confined in a stall the whole day..
Where is yours?

I live in utah (other side of the country). If you'd rather a less competitive barn then your price range will probably be about 200-400. What part of new york do you know? I wouldn't want my horse in a stall all day either. Do you want them out all day or just part of the day? On occasion you have to pay for turnout. I'm assuming closer to new york city prices would be more. In more of country New York than it'll probably be cheaper! :D

Of course I want them out all day even if it's rain. My horses get bored very easily if they are confined in their stall , they need to be out. But if it's very cold or windy the time can be cut off.
Actually, I've never been to USA...I lived at Cambridge in England one year, that's why I can speak an write in english (not that much anymore because i've already lost it!)
But your country is very attractive, and I'm looking forward to visiting it!!!

NY, I have always wanted to go there, anyway, I am positive it would be more expensive in NY then where I am ( neighbors with Raini, same barn). I hope you find a barn.

There are several good links re boarding in the NY area try these

this one is a polo site but the barns are not exclusively polo

If nothing else this will give you an idea of prices and servcies available in the NY area.
