  1. Leasing, Loaning, Buying, Rescuing
    In the next couple of years I want to free lease or purchase a horse. We are on a budget and not too sure of the commitment of buying but recently my mom and I have been getting more serious about it. I have leased horses before and worked multiple jobs at multiple stables for years and am...
  2. Horse Boarding/Livery/Agistment Queries
    25 yo gelding pony currently living his best life in South NJ with a pasture mate who is much older and likely doesn't have much time left. We won't separate them until she passes, but when that happens he will need to go somewhere with friends. I have budgeted for his retirement and I want to...
  3. Horse Boarding/Livery/Agistment Queries
    Hello everyone, I've begun the process of starting to look at boarding facilities around me as I plan on purchasing a horse this coming spring. I would love to know what everyone looks for in a boarding facility for their horse. I've never boarded a horse before as my past horses lived on my...
  4. Horse Boarding/Livery/Agistment Queries
    Before I dive into my issue, I want to clarify that when I say stall board, I mean the horse will still get 12+ hours of turn out everyday. I’ve had my horse at this barn for almost three months now on pasture board and I’m wondering if stall board would be better for him for the following...

    My gelding is 23 and has been at his current barn for 4 years and seems to be very happy there. He has a best buddy that he is turned out with along with several other geldings.

    Hello all, looking for input: I just moved my horse to a new barn. Pay $215 for pasture board, I feed a few times a week and provide feed and hay.

    I have a 2 year old filly who has been in a pasture 24/7 her whole life. I am now going to have to put her in a stall as I'm boarding away from my home. What would be a good way to get her used to the idea of a stall and stall life? She is quiet temperament and easy going, but don't want to...

    I have a fantastic, sweet, well trained and centered stallion. I am seeking a good place to board, somewhere with healthy turnout, safe fencing and knowledgeable about stallions where they will charge reasonable board without charging through the roof. He has no vices or behavioral issues...
  10. Horse Boarding/Livery/Agistment Queries
    Okay so this is kinda a vent, but I also need advice. I just recently bought my first horse and it’s been a huge dream of mine. I have experience riding and I used to volunteer with a local horse rescue. So this all started when I ended up moving away a few months ago to a new area. When I first...
  11. Horse Boarding/Livery/Agistment Queries
    I have been at this boarding facility for about a year and a half, and the care has since severely declined paired with my barn owner being practically bipolar and driving her boarders to leave with a 'my way or the highway' attitude (I understand this within reason but her requests have usually...

    Looks like there have been some similar threads in the past but not for several years, so I'm hoping people will have some more current input! We're thinking about moving up to Portland from San Francisco, and I'll be taking my mostly-retired 20 year old Oldenburg up there with me. Right now...

  15. Horse Boarding/Livery/Agistment Queries
    There's a really tricky situation at a barn near me; a beautiful arabian paint has been boarding there for at least four years, the problem is that her owner comes at most twice a year, and pays less than half of what is in the contract. I looked at the file (I am a manager there of sorts, it's...
