Private tack rooms are provided, equipped with saddle racks and bridle hooks.
Horses are fed three times daily with high quality timothy grass alfalfa hay mix. Our horses are fed with Cavalor grain twice daily along with owner supplied supplements though smartpak. Our horses are offerd individual turnout for a minimum of six hours daily, weather permitting. Stalls are bedded with small flake shavings. Additionally, we provide blanketing and fly sheeting along with daily night check.
Our outdoor jumping ring includes beautifully maintained sand footing and horse-show quality jumps sizing 250 x 200 with a Calgary slide and 2 banks to jump in and out of the arena and practice for Spruce Meadows. Additionally we have an outdoor arena grass field and a few cross country jumps. Our insulated indoor arena includes GGT (German Geo Textile) footing, with mirrors and appropriate letters. Both arenas features ideal footing for flatwork and hacking.
Adjacent to the property is the Backcountry Wilderness Area, which is open for leisurely trail riding and hacking of 8200 Acres.
Horses: With 34+ grass turnouts, our horses live as naturally as possible while in a show environment. Weather permitting, they’re turned out all day or overnight, depending on their preference. Horses may go out individually, whatever is best for their health and well-being. We offer a horse treadmill (Horse Gym 2000) that can be used daily.
Humans: A climate-controlled rider’s lounge Wifi equipped with refrigerator and microwave and a permanent bathroom are offered for client use.
