I’m looking at a move to the Atlanta area towards the end of this year/early next year, and need to start exploring boarding/training options for me and my mare. Like all crazy horse women, I can’t decide where I will live until I find out where I’ll be riding!
I’m looking for farm that’s within an hour of Atlanta (I’ll be working in Midtown and living somewhere between there and the barn we choose!). We don’t require anything fancy, but would appreciate a trainer that 1) will work with a Friesian Sporthorse and 2) teaches riders beyond second level since we are schooling 2nd/3rd level movements currently.
Unfortunately, I’m also experiencing a bit of sticker shock in the area, since most barns where we are moving from board averages ~$500 for full-care. I’m willing to drive a bit further for an affordable barn or an amazing trainer. Any advice is greatly appreciated!!
