Boarding Options

Pasture   $325/month, wait list only

Each horse is carefully managed in small, compatible groups on grass pastures ranging from three to seven acres.  As a general rule one horse per acre is allowed in each pasture to prevent overgrazing and allow each horse ample space.  Horses are checked twice daily by experienced staff who know each horse and his/her normal behaviors.  Free choice grass hay is provided during winter months. 

Covered Run  $400/month, wait list only

Horses are turned out nightly on grass pastures in small, companionable groups and return to their 12' x 30' steel paneled run with attached 12' x 12' three sided shelter.  Grass hay is provided while horses are in their run; grass hay is provided in turn out pastures as needed.  Owner supplied grain and supplements are fed up to two times daily.  Blanketing is included.  Night checks are conducted every night between 7:00 - 9:00 PM.
