    Default FUN Hunter/Jumper Barn in Houston Area

    I just moved to the Houston area and I want to get back into riding again.

    I do not have a horse, and I don't want to lease right now (possible in the future). I live in the inner loop and don't want to trek out too far (if at all possible). I want a barn that is FUN that has an older crowd.

    Can anyone recommend some barns?

    Thanks!

    "Fun" and "Houston" just don't belong in the same sentence. In any case I would swing by Charlotte's and ask them and also trudge out to Katy during the shows and look around to see who looks like they are having fun or atleast amusing each other.

    It's a "KILT". If I wore something underneath, it would be a "SKIRT".

    John DeLeyer with North Fork Farm is possibly the nicest human being on the face of the planet.
    Also that is the family that had Snowman, the $80 horse.


    3 Bay Sporthorses out in Sealy has some fun adults as well, great group of ladies!

    Plenty of fun things to do in Houston and the surrounding areas. Plenty of barns in Houston that do hunter/jumpers.

    Great place to start. Barn DD rides at is a fun barn and they do hunter/jumper but not sure if you want an adult setting or if catering to the kids would include fun.
