I have a friend (non-horsey), who has a friend, who is moving to central MA and is looking for "an equestrian center" (her words not mine) in or near concord, berlin, bolton or sudbury...my non-horsey friend didn't know what discipline her friend rides or what amenities she might want, so I am looking for all suggestions with good care being most important
New England has a local BB that is great - Equinesite.com. It also lists a large number of farms & stables and is a great resource. It will be helpful to her if she refers to those towns as "MetroWest" and not Central MA. We think of Central MA as a bit further west than Bolton/Sudbury/Concord. Those towns are considered commuting distance to Boston.
If she ends up a bit more south Central MA then send her to me. I've just taken over the lease on a nice little equestrian center and I can promise great care. Dressage, Eventing, & HJ
Definitely have them check out the forums on equinesite.com - lots of locals there!
More info would help - I'm in Maynard and started riding again about two tears ago, so fairly recently did a thorough scouring of the barns around here. And there are a TON!! She definitely won't face a lack of choices!!
