Infrastructure: Lighted arenas, equipment to maintain footing, round pens, wash racks, all cost money to erect and maintain. Horse stables often are able to provide these advantages to many when it would be cost prohibitive for a smaller number of equestrians. If you are interested in horse jumping you would need to maintain all of your jumps and rails as well as arrange for a coach to come and train you. All this can be avoided once you are boarding at an appropriate boarding facility. A boarding facility that caters to jumpers could provide all this for you.

Social network for you: The most common answer I get when I ask why a rider doesn't keep her horse at her house is because she enjoys the social advantage boarding stables offer riders. We keep horses for the fun of it. Riding is much more enjoyable when you can share it with others.

A familiar routine when you're away: Horse boarding stables offer a dependable routine for your horse. If you have to travel or work keeps you from attending to your horse on time every day you can rely on the barn for care your horse has learned to time to the second. Horses don't like change.

Help with a sick horse: Nursing an equine injury or illness can require huge chunks of time and a practiced hand. Experienced help can be most welcome on these occasions.

Educational opportunities: Stables often offer training and riding lessons with experienced instructors to improve our skills and our horse's performance.
