  1. Horse Boarding
    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...
  2. Horse Boarding
    I currently run and operate a boarding barn its a smaller private facility. People come when they are looking for a well kept facility with amazing care. I take the time everyday to make sure that the horses are well fed and taken care of. One lady moved her horse in a week ago and signed my...
  3. Horse Boarding
    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...
  4. 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 &...
  5. Horse Boarding
    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...

  7. Horse Talk
    Hi there! I'm hoping this is the right spot to post this and if not I apologize in advance. In the next 3-4 months I plan to move from NYC to Texas. I'm in my mid-thirties and figure it's now or never. I'm confident enough in my career that I believe I can find a job once I'm there, but if I...
  8. New to Horses
    My son is the horse person in the family. He has been riding with the same instructor since he was 6 years old and has been riding for 8 years. We own a pony that we have boarded at the instructor's barn for several years. My son had surgery this year and is not able to ride for a year...
  9. Horse Boarding
    Hi, I am moving my horse to new barn. It is small barn, just me and another boarder who I haven't met. I have always paid my board with check at other boarding places but just found out that barn owner here wants cash only. She is old school, handshake is good, sort. I want a receipt and...

  11. Horse Boarding
    Looking for a boarding place around the Ocala area, I'll be bringing my very English TB mare and very Western QH mare, and I want them to both be in the same barn. Looking for a reputable, trustworthy trainer that knows what they're talking about in all disciplines (mainly H/J and...

  13. Horse Boarding
    Hello, I started school at the University of South Carolina in the fall and am looking for a place to board my horse near the Columbia area. I have researched a few places but I haven't seen any reviews so hopefully I can get some help finding the best farm for us. We aren't hunter/jumper but...
  14. Horse Boarding
    Considering changing barns but I am terrified! I am a fairly new adult rider and just got my first horse (large pony actually) this past August (2015). I started basic riding lessons with the BO I'm currently boarding at before I decided to get my own horse. Since this was the only place I had...

    Hello everyone! I am hoping to move to Bend, OR but before I do so, I wanted to explore the boarding barns in the area to find which ones might be the best fit for my horse and me. I would love to hear your recommendations! I am looking for reasonable board, an indoor arena, an outdoor arena...
  16. Horse Boarding
    Hey! So, I'm kind of new to the forum, so please excuse any mistakes I make. I've spent my whole life around horses -- riding, working as a stablehand, etc. I will be moving my first horse down from North Florida soon, and I would like to know of any barns in the Kendall area that you guys would...
  17. Horse Boarding
    We have only 5 boarders, though are in a horse-saturated area... our rates are competitive, but my hubby says we should lower them, to be comparable to barns in the area that board without an indoor (we do have an indoor). Any thoughts? My concern is that the few boarders we do have will also...

  19. Horse Boarding
    I joined here because I need help. I have been at my barn for three years (since the time my trainer moved to there) and I started showing last year and it was a lot of fun. There weren't many people but we all liked each other. I always got my lessons and never had one canceled. This year it...

    Hi everyone! I'm trying to start my own boarding business. I have several ads out online including Equine Now and Craigslist. What are some good ways I can advertise to get business? I do have a sign posted at my local feed store, but that's the only feed store we have. Thank you! :cowboy:
