Thanks Again,

West Chester is a big township. I would first nail down in what part of West Chester would the job be and look it up on a map. Some of the places mentioned like Goshen are way east, not practical. Lebanon is far enough especially for a place to keep horses. I would take a look at the northwest out past Hamilton which turns into country pretty fast. Would probably still be a 20 mile or longer commute but not bad time wise.

I have lived in Mason for over 35 years and can only remember 1 time anyone escaped from the prison and that lastest all of about 4 hours. There are actually two prisons there located side by side. One is the Lebanon Correctional Institution which is part of Ohio's state prison system. It sits on 1,900 acres of land, much of which is farm to grow food for the prison. Most of the inmates are considered close scrutiny. Next door is the Warren Correctional Institution which is much smaller. I consider it more of a reformatory for youthful offenders.

I have never had a reason to be concerned over the prisons. Besides, they are not in Labanon but over close to I-75 and Monroe. Just a short distance away next to I-75 is the newer Cincinnati Premium Outlets Mall and across the street the large Trader's World Fleamarket.

Southern Butler and Warren Counties are getting too built-up to allow for much riding.

Despite Cincinnati's close proximity to the equine Nirvana of Bluegrass Country, there really isn't that much to offer a serious equestrian. Maybe a Google search for "Ohio stables" and "Kentucky stables" would yield some workable results.
Indian Hill was originally chartered as an equestrian community and unless the village charter has changed every property line within the community is a designated riding trail. There used to be a decent amount of horse stables in Indian Hill. In fact, off of Blome Rd where the old Fleischmann Estate is located was where my mom boarded her horse as a girl. The last time I was back there was over a decade ago and I don't recall them offering boarding services, however, they do have the acreage for it now that it's part of the Green Acres Foundation so maybe things have changed.

Comargo Stables off Shawnee Run Rd. offers boarding as well. And there is some large horse stable down off of Rt126 near Cunnigham at the edge of Indian Hill and Camp Denison (near the bike trail). As large as it is I would imagine it can't be all one persons horses so you may look there for boarding services as well.

I grew up in the Madeira/Indian Hill neighborhood as did my wife. I am very familiar with the equestrian heritage of Indian Hill. But even if there is public boarding available there I do not consider it exactly convenient to West Chester. If you can work in West Chester but live in Indian Hill that is a horse of a different color . But if you are not in that league I still recommend a little north and west of Hamilton.

Yes, somebody revived it last month by replying to a long dead question.
