    Default Barns In Between Bloomington, IN and Indianapolis

    Hey guys...I have decided to use Chron as a networking tool!

    Does anyone know of any barns between Bloomington, IN and Indianapolis? I am probably attending IU next fall and I am desperately searching for a place to keep my mare. Anything in the opposite direction of Bloomington would be totally fine too!

    I went and looked at Nadeem Noon's place recently and while it is an awesome place and they really know what they're doing, I just don't see my mare working in their program.

    I would love to find a place where I can continue teaching some lessons and maybe riding a few extra horses a couple days a week.

    A couple things that I would like to see but I am COMPLETELY FLEXIBLE on are:
    -supply my own grain
    -shavings in the stall, not sawdust
    -feed at least 15 lbs of hay a day
    -have an indoor
    -pay someone to hack my girl a couple times a week (whether this is done by a student of pro doesn't matter to me)
    -semi-private turnout (my mare wont do private and wont do large herds) on grass(<- flexible on the grass option)
    -regular dragging/watering of the arena
    -place for trailer parking

    I am definitely willing to travel to the right place. And again, I would love to continue teaching beginner to intermediate lessons.

    Right now me and a friend are just renting stalls and doing all the work ourselves...so I may be a little crazy the first two weeks...I haven't had the best luck with boarding barns!

    Also, please recommend your farrier and vet here too! My girl has pretty easy feet but I do keep snow pads with fill, and some medium sized studs on her in the winter and I am definitely willing to pay for the best of the best!

    There are a lot of barns between Indy and Bloomington. What about Up N Over didn't you like? Do you do hunters instead of eventing? Do you want a backyard barn? Something with jumps? Dressage?

    There are several dressage only barns in Bloomington, some are private. Don't know about any lesson teaching. If you are still looking, PM me and I'll try to dig them up.

    This farm is owned by a NH style western trainer who also runs a cattle farm, it's a little odd but the horses get all day group turnout and there is a USDF certified instructor. Huge indoor arena, trails.
