Moving to California from the east coast and totally overwhelmed!
I have found this place to be the most amazing resource when I moved my horse from Massachusetts to Central New Jersey a few years ago. My husband is starting a new job at the University of Santa Barbara in September 2013 and I now need to find a place to board my semi-retired Thoroughbred Gelding. He is 23 years old and a real sweetheart - one of the favorites at his current barn.
I need your help! What discussion boards should I check out for the Santa Barbara area to get insider info of where to board? Also, does anyone have any other tips on finding a place? I will be looking for a relaxed, affordable, full-boarding situation at a place that's not too far from the University. My background is in jumpers but my guy is semi-retired pasture pet now and I just do light trail riding.
Thank you so much in advance for your help. We don't move until this August/September so I have plenty of time to plan.
