    Default Looking for a hunter jumper barn in the Charleston, SC area

    Hello All,

    I am moving my 2 horses from TN to the Charleston, SC area in the spring. I have looked online and found a few barns. Does anyone know which ones are any good and don't charge you an arm and a leg for boarding fees? I am paying $300 right now for each horse and we don't want to go over $450 for stall board. Pasture board would be okay but must have 4 board fencing.

    Thanks!

    oh boy....board is super expensive down here because its a resort area. You will be hard pressed to find anything at all in that price range here, and keep in mind we do not have real grass.

    Yeah I was looking at the pasture pictures on some of the places, my guys are going to be so sad!!! they are use to 5 acre pastures! I looked at the map we will be in Harleyville, so closer to 95. is there much on the west side of 95??

    Depends on what services and amenities you need.

    Pasture, ring with jumps and a round pen. I would love to find a place that has an indoor. Right now my horses are in a stall and pasture 12 hours in 12 hours outside during the day.

    I'm only aware of 3 barns in the Lowcountry that have covered arenas- Heritage Hall Stables and what used to be called Half Pass Farms (although it's changed hands, not sure if it changed names too). Also Black Bottom has a covered arena. There may be others I don't know of though.

    I'm not aware of any actual indoors, but you really don't need one in this area.

    No such thing as an indoor down here. A few covered arenas. You are going to have a really hard time finding a ring with jumps and good turnout for anything near your budget. You might search Orangeburg if you are going to be near Harleyville. Traffic to and from Charleston is nightmarish

    You can definitely find barns within your criteria and price point in Moncks Corner/Goose Creek/Summerville- I board at one of them, and it has a covered arena. If you are willing to stay within the Summerville/Goose Creek/Jedburg areas, there are multiple barns that offer decent turnout, nice rings with jumps and great care. Covered arenas are going to be the tough part...

    The closer you get to Charleston, the more expensive it gets. But if you'll be living near Harleyville, sounds like you'll not want to board actually in Charleston or immediate areas. I would suggest narrowing it down to barns that are not far off Hwy 26, since that's likely the way you'll be driving towards Charleston. There are a lot of barns to choose from within 5 miles of a Hwy 26 exit. Rose Court, Medicine Wind, One Tempi, Traveler's Crossing, Balck Bottom, to name a few.

    Thanks Sim! I am from here, but havent lived here in a while. I had a barn in Beaufort for years, and it became impossible to provide the care I think is necessary for an affordable price.

    Oh, agree mroades! I don't know how barns very near the coast can make it. I guess the way they do is by charging an arm and a leg (which I suppose the people that live very near the coast can generally afford!)

    I board in Moncks Corner, but very close to the Goose Creek/Hanahan border. I pay $450 per horse for stall board with a covered arena with jumps, dressage ring, outdoor jump ring, nice barn, 12 hour turnout (although several horses on ~2 acres), plus wash rack, plenty of tack space, etc. Horses get great care and it's a clean, well-maintained facility. Big plus- BO is sane!

    Thanks so much for the information!! Still no actual moved date yet, but this gives me a few places to go look at before I move the horses.

    Are there any jumper-type barns within 45 minutes of Charleston that compete on the A circuit? I am looking into their marine biology program (located on James Island I believe)
    There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the
