My husband and I will be moving soon to the Inman area and I was wondering if there were any horse boarding facilities? I do not have a horse as of right now, but it will be a purchase in the NEAR future.

Is there any tack stores that I can find information?

In buying a horse, are there any recommendations on where to look? I have used craigslist and dreamhorse....anywhere else? I plan on both disiplines (english and western). I have trained for the last 20 years, so finding a horse that is broke and is a good fit will work just fine and I can do the rest.

Thank you!

The Tack Shop in Greenville is quite nice. They have an in store bulletin board and an on line site as well. The staff there is very friendly and helpful. You might want to lease a horse in a reputable barn before making your purchase. It's a great way to see if an instructor and ambience in a facility is going to be a good fit for you. It is so hard on you and your horse to have to change barns if the staff, trainer or fellow clients are not what you're looking for. If leasing does not appeal, take lessons in the barns in the area, identify an instructor who is a good fit and then have that person help you find a horse. There are many lovely, well trained horses out there whose owners would love to place them in a good home for a free lease arrangement or for a minimal purchase price because the child has moved away to college or there is not enough time to ride or the bills have become prohibitive. Those great horses are found through local word of mouth and relationships with the area trainers and instructors. The Tack Shop web site has an extensive list of facilities and professionals. Good luck!
