I may be moving down to TX from MN and will need boarding for my 2 horses.
Horse #1 is my Friesian/Mustang mare that doesn't care for the heat. I'm not sure if a well-shaded pasture would be enough for her or if she'd need a stall with a fan during the day, so I'd like that option to remain open for now. She is in full work and is ridden 5-6 days per week.
Horse #2 is my mostly retired 25 year old gelding, whose only requirements are lots of hay and grain 2x/day.
I currently ride with a great BHS certified trainer who uses dressage as a base for all of her horses. She also does quite a bit of jumping (hunters and jumpers) and has an eventing background. I'd like to find a trainer to continue our dressage work, but who also has jumping experience, as eventually I'd like to jump.
I try to ride OUT as much as possible, so trails or open areas nearby to keep this up is ideal. I have no idea how common indoor arenas are down there, but due to the heat I'd like to find a place with an indoor or covered arena with lights so I can ride really early or later. I don't currently show but would like to try it out at some point. I cannot afford full training for my mare, but intend to keep up with lessons as often as I am able. I'm not looking for something super casual but also not looking for a high end show barn either!
I'd be moving to Lewisville and prefer as close as possible, obviously, but would like to keep the drive under 45 minutes!
