    Default Central/Northern NJ Backyard Boarding

    I am looking for private, small, low key, backyard type boarding in central/northern NJ. Anyone have or know of anyone that has a backyard barn looking to make a couple of bucks on board? Ideally I would like to find a place that is very small - no other boards or very few boarders. I am a very low key, low demanding boarder. I have a very high demanding stressfull job and use horses as my stress reliever and like boarding without the stess of a busy barn. I love trail riding and hunter paces, as well as taking lessons and horse showing. Just don't like the show barn atmosphere.

    I have been boarding at my friend's 2 horse shed row barn and absolutly love it there. No ring - plenty of grass to ride on though. The place is not fancy by any means. The horses are so happy with the low key atmosphere. Friend is getting a second show horse, so I need to find a new home for my horse by 9/1/11.

    Please let me know if anyone is looking to take on a boarder - I dont even mind helping out (I do it now for my friend) on the days I come and ride. Pick horses stalls, feed dinner, etc... As I said I am very low demanding and just looking for a happy place to spend my little time I have with my horse.

    We're in Frenchtown, very low-key and looking to take on a boarder. Right now it's two mares and one foal on almost six acres and a 9-stall barn. Lots of fields nearby to ride through as well as a grass ring. I don't give lessons or anything, but if you do jumpers Anne Kursinski is two miles down the road. Betsy Steiner is less than five miles if you do dressage.

    Frenchtown is a little far for me - about 45-50 minutes. I would really like to find something a little closer. I will keep you in mind though and I appriciate your response. If you know of anyone that is a little closer please let me know.

    I am currently boarding in Pittstown, NJ...

    Pittstown is very close. 5-10 mins. I'm on 519.

    I understand, though. Closer is better! Good luck in your search.
