My DH is taking a new job up there & the kids & I (+ my horse) will be coming up after the school year ends. I'm looking to board somewhere with good hacking but also an indoor. Any ideas? Also are there any nearby OTTB rescue groups? Or are these done more on a private basis? Any help would be appreciated. We are looking forward to living in this neat, little town. Thanks!
A little more on what you want/need would be helpful. TONS of facilities in the area, some good, some not so much. Lots of good show circuits (Lake Placid, as mentioned, VT, HITS). Lessons? Training? Turnout? Quality more important than big egos?
Was just there last night with a bunch of other like-minded - and rode/boarded there eons ago, and now live a bit far.
I'll e-mail a resident friend, and pass along your query. Yes, more details would help!
No big "official" OTTB rescue groups right there that I'm familiar with, probably more word-of-mouth. The Saratoga TB racing season is only end of July - Labor Day, with works beginning in the spring, and over in the fall. When horses leave there, they often return to Belmont/Aqueduct, or sometimes to Finger Lakes, or, back to KY, MD, CA, etc., etc.
