    Default Boarding/Stall rental Reccomendation for The Plains, VA

    Looking for a place in The Plains area to board my horse.
    I have a super sweet old gelding who is perfectly well mannered and super easy to handle.

    Looking for the following if any one has any recommendations or leads I would be soo grateful!

    • Either a boarding barn OR dry stall rental
    • Grass turnout (and plenty of it!) is a must
    • arena (would love an indoor, but of course just an outdoor will do)
    • Access to trails (not a must, but really want)
    • Group turnout or turnout with a buddy (my horse hates being alone)

    First choice would be a small facility or private barn where I could keep my horse and perhaps share in the daily care. If you know of anyone who has a private barn and would like someone to share care with (ie each feed and care for the horses 1 x a day or such) or have some to care for their horse when they go out of town, etc. Or just want to rent out an empty stall. As I have my horse at home right now and I love caring for him!

    Second choice would be a nice boarding facility with good amenities and people to ride with.

    PM if you have any thoughts!! Thanks so much!

    Any recommendations? Haven't received many. Would love to hear from happy boarders, barn owners looking for boarders, etc.

    Thanks so much!!

    I don't claim a comprehensive knowledge of barns in the area, but the ones I do know about are primarily show stables and don't do dry stalls and/or part board.

    What's your price point? That might make it a little easier for people to recommend places for you.
