Academy Boarding (automatic payment only)

Boarding Cost: $250.00+  includes worming, twice daily feeding and a tack box.

Extra Feed Cost: $20.00 for any horse over 1000 lbs or eats over 15 lbs a day.

Academy boarding is not full service boarding, our boarding program is designed to emulate the experience of keeping your horse at home. Our boarders are asked that you help out and follow the stable and arena rules. When you come to the ranch and see the cross ties needs to be cleaned up, rake them up. Come out on regular bases to exercise your horse and clean your stall or if you do not have time, the pasture may be a better way to go. Pasture boarding with other horses can mean the chance that your horse may get hurt more often than in a pen or pasture by him/her self. Yes, most horses are happier to be in pasture with other horses. They are very social and do enjoy the company.

Initial Vet. check up~ age & over all health (no charge), teeth floating $160 ($35 by our teeth person), sheath cleaning (you can do it, after sedation), and shots $60.00 (Veterinarianís recommendation)  Call out charge $50 (prices are subject to change)
