    Default Retirement board in or around Durham, NC

    I'm thinking about moving to the Durham area in the next few months. I'd be able to free lease one of my geldings, but my older guy is with me forever. His is completely retired now and needs 24/7 turnout. My requirements would be: good sized fields with shelter, great care, quality hay and a reasonable price.

    I'm off to google, but figured cothers might have recommendations for reputable barns. Thanks!

    My boarding barn is about an hour from Durham, but its heaven.
    As a former barn manager I'm about as particular as it gets, and they keep my horses and me happy. PM me if you'd like info.

    I board at Crescent Farm in Hillsborough - about 10 miles from Durham. Fantastic place with full pasture board and caring owners/managers.

    I specialize in retired show horses at a farm in Pinehurst NC. The retirees live out their lives, receiving the attention they were accustomed to while showing. They are turned out individually or in small groups - come in daily to stalls, receive specialized diets as needed, blanketed as necessary & are groomed 3 times a week. For futher info - send me an e-mail @ twizzle10@aol.com or a PM.
