    Default Barns in Memphis, TN???

    Hi all. In August, I will be moving from New York to Memphis, TN to start college and I desperately want to bring my horse with me. I was wondering if anyone knew of hunter/jumper barns in Memphis or the surrounding area. The barn needs to provide a full board option (stalls, feeding, turnout, etc) for $600 or less. I would also be willing to do some work (grooming, riding, or anything really) a few days each week in exchange for part of the board cost and am prepared with several recommendations. If you know of any barns that you think would be a good fit for me and my horse, please let me know!! Thanks in advance

    -Casey and River

    Default Memphis Barn

    I have a good friend who lives in Memphis, rides out of this barn
    http://www.autumnchasefarm.com/

    I know they provide excellent care, I know she has been to or knows of many of the barns in the area.
    Not sure about the board amount but I would definitely give them a call.

    Try David Wright, Hunters Court Stables. He is a good reputable trainer and has a solid program. I do believe he has a website. Good luck with your move!

    David is 3.5 hours from Memphis in Mufreesboro, TN so probably not a viable option. I would see if there is any space available at David Pellegrini's barn. http://www.springmillfarm.com/

    Woops! Thought David Wright was closer to Memphis. I do, however, agree with the David Pellegrini referral. He seems to have a very good program, as well.

    Do you want a show barn with training or not? That would make a huge difference in how much you would have to shell out.

    There are lots of smaller places around that would be well within your price range.
