    Default Boarding-Montgomery and Bucks Counties- PA

    I know that this has been asked before, but I am finally moving to the area in 3 weeks. I have found a place that is at the top of my list to move my horse to, however I am just doing some research...
    WHat are you paying or about what are you paying for regular, full care board, excluding training?
    ETA: the place I was originally planning to go to is way too expensive, they raised their prices since I inquired originally :-( so i am looking again

    Call up Bucks County Saddlery and ask about this. Like a good, old-school tack shop, the people working there can give you the nitty gritty of the area that you want.

    i moved to montco from northampton in august and my searches were all $400+. i am at a FABULOUS place right now and i think we have a stall or two open right now (rare-we usually have a waiting list) and it's $510 for one horse i believe. it's in new hope and there's a small indoor, a decent outdoor and LOTS of trails. the care is beyond anything i have ever experienced, which is what i love about it. the BM is amazing. but yeah, expect to pay at least $400 for a stall at a place with any amenities.

    I agree with calling Bucks County Tack Shop. They are super helpful there.

    But it really depends on where you're looking and what for. I've seen places as low as $125 for partial/self care and as high as $675 for full board (without training rides or anything else). Then there's a place for field board for $500! It really depends.

    Default Headed to PA as well

    My husband just got transferred up there (starts May 2). I will follow as soon as I can get things in order. While working at the Barracks this winter I met Pheobee Demott and really liked her. I talked with my current trainer and they are happy i will be near her so I would give her a call. PM if you want her information.

    Worcester Stables in on Potshop Rd. on the grounds of the Gambones's Our Farm. The farm is located in Worcester Township, neighboring the Blue Bell area. If anyone wanted to know.

    Yes, I realize. Someone posted that there was a Worchester in Blue Bell. Worchester @ Our Farm is in Norristown (not Blue Bell). So what I am asking is whether the one "in Blue Bell" is the one at Our Farm or a different one.
