This is probably a long shot but I found this community while searching for barns to board at in Pittsburgh. I was wondering if anyone still uses this community or has suggestions on where to board! I've recently looked at Morning Star Stables and Bethel Park Stables but I'm still hunting! I want to move my 12 year old gelding up from Florida. Any transport advice would be helpful as well. Thanks!

I don't know if any of you remember me, but a couple months ago I was asking around to find a barn in the Pittsburgh area to ride at while I'm at school...

Anyway, I started riding at ROMRA, and I'm loving it a lot. So far I've only had two lessons (damn, I wish I wasn't poor and busy...) but I guess I've only had crappy trainers before, because I'm learning so much! So thanks for the recommendations, it is so good!

Now I have another question. I picked up the book "The Complete Training of Horse and Rider" by Alois Podhajsky and I've been reading it for about a week or so. It's madly excellent, especially since I knew nothing about dressage a month ago....

So now I'm looking for more books. Anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks a lot!

Hi, all!

Let me introduce myself -- I just moved to the Pittsburgh area from New Jersey. I've been riding hunter/jumper for about 14 years, anad haven't been on a horse since I moved here four months ago. I'm not very familiar with the area and would appreciate any help I can get on finding a barn. I don't own a horse anymore so I don't need boarding, just lessons.

Thanks, everyone. This seems like a great community!

Yesterday I went to an Unmounted clinic in Ohio for Upper Level Pony Clubbers. It was quite informational and I really enjoyed it. First we had a slideshow/lecture about conformation in the legs. We discussed what would pre-dispose horses to what injuries and what not. (if you've got a weak stomach I don't suggest these photos...Then we disected a horses leg.Collapse )

I rode horses for about 7 years. I did some showing with my horses but I had to quit b/c of financial reasons. Someday I will be back in the saddle. :)

The barn I rode at was Mingo Creek Farms.
