    Default dressage barn alpharetta, ga

    Hi
    I am moving to Alpharetta next month and I am looking for a dressage barn with turnout for 2 horses.
    Any suggestions for good places and what places to stay away from?
    thanks!

    Shannondale Farm offers much more turnout time than most of the other barns in the area - 4-5 hours per day, in small compatible groups (2-3 horses per group), and on good sized and well maintained pastures. They have a lovely covered arena, grass jump field (where we often work the dressage horses when the weather is nice), and even trails through the woods surrounding the property. It is pretty pricey, but the amenities and care are fantastic (very good quality feed and hay, every horse gets groomed every day after turnout, a very experienced and involved BO, etc.). We have no drama there, and me and my horses are loving it! http://www.shannondale.com/

    I second the recommendation for Shannondale. The care is absolutely topnotch and the turnout is fabulous. My horse has never been happier.

    He is at Applewood, though, right? Not much turnout there, unfortunately.

    You will like it here!! I live in Alpharetta and there are many options available. There are several top notch facilities all less than 12 miles from my home. Milton, Alpharetta, and the neighboring counties are full of really nice facilities. Alpharetta has its own equestrian park (Wills Park) and we have one of the 18 Dover Saddlery stores in the country. I'll send you a PM on some of my favorites.

    We are moving there soon, also. We have 1 dressage and 2 trail horses. We are used to paying $350 for boarding at a nice facility in Arizona and all we seem to find are $1,000/month barns. Just wondering what you found there.

    Please send me some suggestions as well. We are moving to the area in Februray and coming out in a few days to scout houses and barns. We are used to paying $400 each to board our horses at a nice facility in Arizona, so we are having sticker shock at what we are seeing in your area....
