Pastures

We have eight pastures ranging in size from .5 acre to 11 acres.

In each pasture, the ground is level, stones have been removed, there is no debris, and plenty of shade is available. Shade for a horse minimizes its exposure to mosquitoes, horse flies, and other flying insects. Each pasture has natural forage consisting of grasses and legumes.

We regularly inspect the pastures to make sure that they are free from harmful weeds. Access to all pastures is through the home corral, which is 400 ft. long by 75 ft. wide (.7 acre). Gates in the home corral control access to all pastures. Alleyways connect the home corral with our more distant pastures.

The Chute

A chute, or alleyway, allows riders to gain access to the riding arena and the round-pen without interacting with other horses.

Quarantine Shelter

All new horses to our facility are quarantined for two weeks. During this time such horses have access to a covered shelter 20' wide and 12' deep as well as a corral 78' long and 42' wide. This corral has its own pasture adjacent to it.

Covered Shelter for the Horses

We have 5,500 square feet of covered shelter to protect the entire herd from the elements. This area is well lit and has two automatic waterers under its roof. It has all of the advantages of indoor, confined, boarding with none of its disadvantages. Good ventilation is just one of the advantages of this area.
