  1. Horse Boarding
    Hi all, I am searching for a nice barn (with) pasture for boarding near LA. At best near Burbank, Glendale, Lake View Terrace, Topanga. I know it is very hard to find, but I give it a try: - 24/7 Pasture with a group of horses (A barn with a part time pasture would also work) - Fresh water &...
  2. Hunters and Hunter Seat Equitation
    Does anyone know of any really good hunt seat equitation show barns near the Findlay, Ohio area? I'd be willing to travel up to an hour, but would prefer to stay close. I just want the opportunity to work with a really awesome equitation trainer who will challenge me as a rider. I'd also be...
  3. Horse Talk
    Hey everybody! Hope y'all are having a great day. I was talking with a friend the other day and the subject of how we got into horses came up. I was raised in a very rural/ ranching community, so I was raised on horses, and I was not in the minority when it came to that. I probably started...
  4. Rider Wellness
    Hi! I may need some advice, seeing that I am a student. I may be leasing my own horse for the first time ever and in the past I've been competing on lesson horses. And while I'm perfectly comfortable with leasing a horse as I have been handling horses for over ten years now (classical dressage)...
  5. Barn Maintenance
    This might sound a little weird, but bare with me. I'm designing a barn and I need some help... I already know a lot of qualities that can make the horses happy; but I wanted to know if there were add-ons or qualities that would make boarders, farriers, veterinarians, and grooms/stable-hands...
  6. Horse Boarding
    Hello everyone! I need to collect data to help put together a small business plan for my business class, and ultimately to help me in the preparation for my actual business. I thought that this would be a good place to start to get some input. I could use all the help I can get! I am in the...
  7. New to Horses
    Horse owners, just out of curiosity, how many days a week do you go to the barn?:runningborwnhorse:
  8. Horse Boarding
    I have been at this barn for almost a year now and when I first moved in there was plenty of grass for the horses to graze on but now that there are more boarders the pasture is basically dirt. My horses are now in their stalls almost all day long because of no grass to eat( Plus the other...
  9. Horse Talk
    Hi! I'm new here, but I've got a situation at my barn that I don't know how to handle and since most of you guys are older than me I thought maybe you can help. So I board my horse at a small barn, and the current barn owner is Lynn. Along with boarding my horse, I also "work" there. So here's...
  10. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Hi everyone! I'm moving to Beaverton, Oregon in a few weeks and want to find somewhere to ride! I don't own horses, but would love to find somewhere to clean some stalls in exchange for a partial lease or just some time in the saddle. Please let me know if you know of anything! Thanks, ~Devon
  11. Horse Boarding
    Hey everyone! So I board my horse at a really nice, enormous boarding facility. He lives in the pasture board part of it, and we pay $350 a month for board. The horses have access to 40 acres of extremely nice green pastures (almost too nice; most of the horses need muzzles in the summer), and...
  12. Horse Talk
    So....I have an issue that could fall into many categories so I figured this would be the best place to post it. I myself own one horse, a 10 year old STB, and lease another, a 15 year old TWH. I also care for and ride an 18 year old TWH/Morgan cross because his owner is too busy with work to...
  13. Barn Maintenance
    Barns come in many sizes and styles so I'm curious about what you love the most about your current or past barns and stables. Is it the general design, the floor mats, the feeders, the paddock, the fencing... what?! I'm in the process of looking for land and a barn design (that I can afford)...
  14. Welcome! Introduce yourself here!
    Hello y'all... I'm brand new to the forum but know just enough about 'forums' to know I should come and introduce myself first. :wave: I'm hoping to meet some folks to talk horses, homesteading, and moving back to country life with. In a nutshell... I grew up country but have lived city...

  17. Barn Maintenance
    I'm sure this is everyone's concern...:) Fire in your barn!!! Our barn is approximately 500' from the house. It has power and phone. But no way to know that there is a fire in the wee hours of the night. Does anyone know of any remote fire alarms that can sound in the house/call your phone...

  19. Barn Maintenance
    We just built our barn last fall. We built it on a base of 1" crushed limestone at the recommendation of the builder. This is fine inside the stalls becuase there are matts over the top. However, under the lein-to part of the barn it has the 1" crushed limestone as well. Builder said it...
  20. Horse Talk
    EQUUS magazine posted this PDF for its users to print out and post at their barn regarding horses & barn safety. All of it seems pretty common sense to us horsey-people, but some non-horsey visitors might not know some of this information. Anyway, I thought I would share it in case some of you...
