Riding Board options (co-op or full): Must be in a regular program with a professional trainer here or with approved program off-site or virtual.
$200 Facility Use Fee = 10 farm feedings per month (that is 2-3 feed shifts per week)
What else are you good at? Grooming, tacking up, cleaning the barn, cleaning tack, cutting grass, weed eating, taking trash off, moving jumps, what else?
Does your dad like to cut stuff down, like trees on the paths? Built stuff like run in sheds or fence? Run tractors to bush hog?
We're game for trades.
Retirement boarders accepted on a word-of-mouth and referral basis only.
We would LOVE to be connected with you if you are looking for retirement board!
We care for a variety of retired horses varying from beloved pets to Olympic Contenders (Von Perrier, 1996 Canadian 3-Day Team). We enjoy giving these horses the love and care they are used to while allowing them to transition to a life of leisure with their horse buddies.
Retirement board is designed and priced for non-riding horses.
Retired boarders are welcome to schedule visits, however facility use to ride is not included as these horses are no longer in work.
Saddle walks for pleasure (no charge for this if the horse is safe for working students to walk on).
(Partial retirement boarders accepted on a case-by-case basis. Please ask KC for details and prices).
BARN TOURS available during the academic year by appointment.
KC is more than happy to talk to you via phone and/or email on the off season (summer break/winter break).
For an estimate of boarding and training fees based on your individual situation please email us. We are more than happy to work with your current trainer to make an academic year transition back and forth stress-free.
