Anyways. I've been thinking about boarding lately. I've been at a growing number of barns and each one had pluses and minuses. Two I wouldn't go back to. The rest I would under the right circumstances.
What really makes a boarding place worthwhile? It obviously has to fit the budget, but when we're talking luxury item (horse), the budget is fuzzy. We can do cheaper board and more lessons or more board and lots of auditing. You know the drill.
|or awesome ribbons. do those sway you?|
And then there are non-negotiables like horse care. Except they totally vary from person to person.
And commute time. How far am I willing to drive give tn above list? How much time can I just slice out of my day every time I want to go to the barn?
Trainers on site? Trailer parking? Jumps? Trails?
What is your ideal barn and how close is your boarding barn to that ideal?
