Horse Boarding and Horseback Riding around Raleigh

blueskiesbarnWhen looking for a Horse Boarding barn, either just for casual horseback riding, trail riding – or for hunter jumper show barns or eventing barns – I’ve found there are very few resources locally that can help with the search.  I will try and update this post to identify any area horse farms I can find – so if you see some I’ve missed – please shoot me a comment, as I’d like this to be a thorough resource for any area equestrians looking for a friendly place for their horses!

In addition, I’d love to identify area locations for trailoring in for trail rides as well.  So if anyone has more information on great trail rides for you and our horses, please let me know that as well.

The below map shows you the horse barns I’ve come across.  If you click on one of the drop down markers, the information I have available will appear within the map.  I’ve tried to label the specialty of each by assigning it to a color. Right now, Hunter Jumper barns are yellow, Dressage or Eventing barns are green, Co-op boarding locations are blue, and then I have a lot in red yet that are either multi-discipline, or I just haven’t gotten to look at their site yet to figure out what they actually are :). Again – more to come as I get additions every week!

UPDATE – If you want to just save the map in your own Google maps, here is the direct URL I embedded:

Is there a way to click on the tags that are sort of buried under the ones "on top?" Can't seem to do that - just keep getting the same "top" ones.
    Michael Hubbard
    Yeah - I've noticed that with Google Maps as well... If they're close by each other, they tend to overlap. Because none of them are the EXACT same address, there's a little separation, but the only way to know it is to click the plus sign in the lower left corner and that will allow you to keep zooming in. If you click in the upper right where it says view in full screen, then the list appears as well and it's a bit easier to navigate.

I think Windstar stables moved to George King road (where the Durham location of Ride The Sky used to be) but check with the owner (Allison Pappas) first. Not sure who is now leasing the Mebane location where Windstar used to be. Also missing from the map is Saddletree Stables. Also missing from the map, an excellent barn:
