View Full Version : Looking for Boarding Stable in Central Iowa

Looking for a boarding stable and trainer in Central Iowa for eventing, please no hunter-jumper barns. I've been looking online and have been to several barns and have not found one that I truly like yet... so thought you guys might know of something :) The closer to ISU the better.
Thanks. :))

Honestly, I'm not sure that you will find anything. The only "eventing" barns I ever really knew of were located in Eastern Iowa, closer to Dubuque.

CanterBrooke is a little more "eventery" than most other barns in Central Iowa, so it may be worth looking into.

I don't live in central iowa anymore but i did. It will be hard to find an eventing only barn. I don't think either of these people board, but both event and would be a good starting point. I have had interactions with both and recommend either. Michele Kalsem at http://www.kalsem.net/node/1 and Camie Stockhausen at http://www.camstock.net/index.html.

I lived in central Iowa for many years and there are virtually no eventing barns. Canterbrooke is the closest thing to one unless something else has been built in the last couple of years. There are several non-discipline barns that allow instructors to come in, PM if you want some names.
