Horse boarding for trail rider near Avon Lake/Cleveland?
(Cross posted from Off Course)
Not for me, but for a dear relative of mine. He recently moved to Ohio and his horse, who is used to having 12 hours of daily turnout, is now getting 1 hour of daily turnout.
He rides Western but he's a good egg, as is his horse. He's happy to share with other open-minded disciplines like trail riders, foxhunters, eventers, etc. He's not a good match for a dressage or hunter/jumper barn, or a Western show barn, since he'd be a magnet for trouble: he's tall, smart, funny, charismatic, successful, and has a beautiful and charming wife.
Wish list, in this order:
--good hay/feed and care
--lots of turnout
--close to Avon Lake
Everything else is flexible. If he found a backyard facility or rental paddock that met these criteria, he'd take it. If the facility also happened to have an arena or two, a tack room, and not be super duper busy, that would be a plus. Access to trails would be nice, but if there's trailer parking then he can live without trails. I'm sure he's prepared to pay more to get more.
