Board

TRAINING BOARD

Call, email or just come drop in during business hours.

Our clients over the years always say to us when they go away “just keep taking care of him like he’s yours.” To us, there is no greater compliment.

Barn hours 7:00 am to 9:30pm every day of the year.  We offer boarding services only in conjunction with a regular weekly lesson or training program.  We believe this is the best way for us to help keep your horse healthy, sound and in peak condition. Our owners come from as far away as Alexandria and Baltimore because they have high standards and want the best for their horse.

Leasing 

     PART/HALF LEASING:  Many of our boarders find it helpful to share their horse with someone else.  We frequently have students looking to part lease.  The owners retain all the rights of ownership, they just offer their horse for 2 or 3 days a week in exchange for help paying expenses.  The going “part lease” rate is $300 for 2 days a week and $450 for 3 days a week.  This comes directly off the owners board bill every month (the farm does not take anything for this service.)  Leasers are required to take lessons which helps maintain your horses’ level of training.

     FULL LEASING:  This works differently as the Leaser takes all expenses on the horse and in turn can ride when ever they want and enter whatever competitions they want.  These are usually a minimum of 1 year, and only work if the owner isn’t riding at all.  This is perfect for people with heavy travel schedules for work or a college student who doesn’t take their horse to school with them.

Your Horses’ Care

     We feed our horses two or three meals a day and are very discerning when it comes to what our horses eat.  We feed top quality Purina Brand Feed and design your horses diet around their temperament, exercise and metabolism.  We are also extremely careful choosing our hays.  Everything is grown in Pennsylvania from experienced hay farmers we have sourced for years.   We go the extra mile (and don’t charge you) for the hard keepers.   We work with your Veterinarian and Farrier to devise a supplement regime where necessary (though our Purina Feeds are well fortified.) We feed supplements in Smart Pak. www.smartpakequine.com. We have solid relationships with many Vets in the area, so you can bring your own or we can recommend one for you. We will gladly schedule with your current Farrier and if that is not possible, we can recommend one for you.

     We schedule all routine Vet and all Farrier needs and all horses are on a bi-monthly health program with their particular Veterinarian.  

     One of our most popular services (included in your board rate) is that we will leave your horse in for you if you call before turnout.  For those with busy lives, it makes life much easier to have your horse in.

We are also one of the few places where your dogs are welcome!  As long as they do not interfere with the health and well being of resident animals…you may bring your dog.
