Owners of boarded horses are expected to arrange regular exercise for their animals.
Private pipe paddocks are 24'x24' with half shelters. Private electric tape paddocks are 24' x 24' with 8' x 12' shelters. There are group paddocks of various configurations. Box stalls or paddocks of special design may be installed on request.
Horses are fed near dawn and dusk each day. Unless horses are on a diet, they receive enough food to last many hours such that it is similar to continuous opportunity to eat.
All paddocks are cleaned regularly so there is little manure build up.
Fresh water for each horse is placed in large containers. This way we can monitor water consumption, easily clean them, as well as have water available in case of a natural disaster.
You may have your choice of roughage (hay) and amounts to be fed to your horse. You may also have your choice of concentrates, supplements, and bedding. All feed and bedding is charged separately at market cost.
Personal tack may be stored in a locked common tack room or privately purchased locker.
Horse trailers may be stored on the property at no extra charge.
Board is $330 / month plus the cost of feed. 10% off for second or additional horses. Due at the beginning of each month.
The base board fee of $330 a month includes on request services such as:
Blanketing during the winter
Occasional turn outs
Minor veterinary treatments / giving medications
Other services are available for purchase
Cost of feed can vary dramatically. However, an easy rule of thumb is that it will cost about $200 a month for hay to feed an average horse. It can be half of that for a pony and double that for a large horse with special needs.
