  • Introduction

    Choosing a horse boarder is a unique type of business transaction because it can become a long-term partnership. The boarder can become the person your horse relies on for care and attention when you’re busy. Additionally, the boarding facility becomes your horse’s home, so you want it to be safe and comfortable.

    Things to consider when choosing a boarding facility include the level of care your horse needs and how much you can comfortably spend on boarding. The amount of time you have available to take care of your horse is also a consideration. This detail is due to the types of care packages boarding facilities offer.
  • What is horse boarding?

    Horse boarding is when a horse farm provides a place for a horse to stay and manages its daily care in exchange for a fee. Some boarding facilities also provide medical care for horses. Boarding provides a way to be a responsible horse owner for someone who doesn’t have a safe place to keep a horse.

  • What are the different types of horse boarding?

    Horse owners can choose from two main types of boarding. The types are pasture boarding and stall boarding.

    • Pasture boarding does not include access to a stall.
    • Stall boarding provides horses with a place to sleep indoors.

    In addition to the two main types of boarding, there are different levels of care offered by some breeders. The levels of boarding care offered include:
    • Full care
    • Partial care
    • Self care

  • Why board a horse?

    Boarding a horse is usually chosen to enhance its well-being. Horses need room to run and play as well as a safe place to sleep. Additionally, horses need care, such as grooming and training, that take time. Horse owners who aren’t able to provide those things can choose to board horses at places that offer those things.

  • Where to board a horse?

    To find a place to board a horse, check online listings to understand what you can expect from each facility. Additionally, consider checking classified ads online or in print to find boarding facilities. Choose one that’s conveniently located so you can visit your horse frequently.

  • What is a horse boarding stable?

    A horse boarding stable is a place that rents out stable space and room for horses to run. It’s a service for people who don’t have room to care for their horses. It can also be used by people who aren’t able to give horses the care needed to be healthy and happy.

  • What does boarding a horse include?

    Boarding a horse usually always includes a safe place for a horse to sleep and a pasture area where it can exercise and eat grass. Some boarding facilities offer full-care packages while others offer partial packages that let owners choose the level of service they want.
