Equestrian Challenge Day 8

Day 08- A little about the barn/stable you ride at

Well there are 2 parts to this I guess.  In the summer I ride here at home mostly. although i do trailer a lot, whether to friends places  for fun or neighbors to work, or to lessons.  But mostly at home.  But since I have no arena at home, either indoor or out, I board over the winter.  Last year found a really nice place that my horse is kept alone (or with a friends horse) and barn is heated and arena is a nice size.  I really like it there.  The owner is really friendly and all the other boarders are nice as well.  Not many ride in the daytime which is fine by me, gives me lots of room to do my own thing.

 (her outdoor pen which has an waterer but no shelter yet)
 (the arena, there are barrel racers and jumpers there so never know 
whats gonna be set up when I get there, I have been taking Jessie over
 the lowest cavellettis at a trot, she thinks I'm crazy)

(my tack room, just an empty stall I share with 2 others, 
lots of room in there for our stuff)

Looks like a really nice place.
I had never heard of boarding just for the winter until now. It is a great idea though!

Looks and sounds like a nice place to board your horse and ride ! One of our saddle club members and friend who also is a show judge has a lovely arena and barns and has lessons there all year . Have a good day !

I have always thought about boarding somewhere during the winter since I only have an outdoor arena. And all it does is rain here in the winter so I don't get to ride hardly at all this time of year. My arena is flooded right now. But it is hard to do that when I can keep them at home and see them whenever I want. 2 aren't rideable and 1 has arthritis so I don't ride her much anyways and I'm giving Chance the winter off to grow up more.
Looks like a nice place and that's great you can ride all winter now!

Nice that you've got a good place for the winter. We have a brand new indoor arena just down the road from here, but of course, I still don't have a truck with a hitch on it. Oh well, I really don't have anything to ride right now.
