Boarding

Boarding at a private or public barn is one option for horse owners to keep their horses. The facility should have extensive experience taking care of horses. There are a variety of options for horse care at a stable, including pasture board, partial board, stall board only, full care, etc. Choosing where to keep your horse can be a hard decision. Do you need to have an arena? Trails? An indoor arena? An instructor on site? Is the facility safe enough. What are the rules of the barn. And then meeting new people at the barn and maintaining relationships can be tricky. Horse Illustrated explores these topics and more.
