    Default Impressive Horse Facilities

    Just looking to waste time on the internet here.

    So who knows of some really impressive stables out there? Preferably with pictures/websites. You know, the Taj Mahals of the riding world.

    Might as well start planning my dream barn now!

    HOLY COW! That place is gorgeous!!

    Did any of you look at the board rates? I was expecting it to be out of this planet but it's only $650 a month for the basics (which is a word used loosely, cause anything there really doesn't count as basic!!)
    I've heard there's more to life than an FEI tent and hotel rooms, so I'm trying it.

    He doesn't list prices, but I expect that Greenwich facility charges $3,000 a month, minimum.

    Was in the vicinity of this place yesterday. It was gorgeous. No horses in sight.
