Looking for some help or advice! I searched for previous posts on this topic but everything I could find was several years old.
I will be relocating to the northern Atlanta area this coming summer (somewhere in the Marietta, East Cobb, Roswell, possibly even Powder Springs or Alpharetta areas) and will be needing boarding for my gelding and lessons for myself. Ideally I’d like to end up at a barn that has an in-house eventing focused trainer, but would be just as willing to board somewhere and bring a trainer in. An active show barn or at least a place that is willing to take students to shows would be nice. I’m currently competing at BN but looking to move up to N by the end of this year.
Would love suggestions for a reputable trainer and/or facility. I’ve looked at the USEA Area III website to try and get some ideas and I do have a few barns that I would like to scope out, but have no knowledge of the area at all and don’t know any of the names of trainers besides what google has shown me.
I’ve never been to Atlanta, but will be planning a few trips out later this winter/early spring to look at houses, etc. We do know that we’ll be in the northern area, as my husbands work is going to be located in Marietta.
Looking to stay under $750ish for board (is that possible in the area?!) Stall would be nice (with adequate turnout), but my gelding has been pastured boarded before so he wouldn’t have any issues with that again. I’m ok driving 30-45 mins to get to a barn as well if it’s a great match.
Please feel free to PM me if you’d like or point me in any direction.
Very much appreciate any help!
PS: Are the summers really that horrible down there?? I’ve lived in the Midwest my whole life and while I hate winter, I know how to deal with it. We get pretty hot and humid (90+ degree’s with 90% humidity) during a few weeks of the summer, but I’ve been warned of the whole “hot-lanta” part…
