    Default Barns around Auburn, Alabama?

    Can anyone recommend a boarding barn around Auburn, Alabama? I'm starting vet school at Tuskegee in August and will probably bring my horse with me to school.

    My wish list:
    Full board
    Good care with safe fencing
    Good amount of space for turnout
    Ring with decent footing
    8-12 hours of small group or individual turnout per day (night turnout in summer, day turnout in fall/winter)
    Being able to provide my own grain
    Some low key trails either on the farm or within hacking distance
    I'm not picky about discipline since I'm not going to have time to ride competitively, although a low-key eventing farm would be a plus.

    Any help/suggestions would be much appreciated!
    Abby

    There's an H/J facility called H&G Horse Quarters that's pretty nice.

    Also, you might PM Foxygrl16 on here. She lives in AU and either takes a few boarders or knows someone who would.

    Nice choice on Tuskegee for vet school. We took a colicking horse there and were extremely pleased with the care and attention he received. People don't realize how good it is.

    Can't rave enough about this barn, the trainers, and the care the horses receive. Not to mention its SO close to Auburn! =)

    Thanks for the links everyone! SuCaro Ridge is beautiful and looks like a blast, do you have to lesson in order to be able to board there or are lessons optional? I would probably take a lesson every now and then, but probably won't have the $$ or time to lesson on a regular basis. I also couldn't find the per month boarding cost, does anyone board there or know how much it is?

    Thanks again!
    Abby
