BARN RULES

No more than one horse is allowed per stall.

YOU DO NOT NEED CERTIFIED WEED FREE HAY.

PELLET BEDDING IS REQUIRED IN ALL STALLS. We have switched from shavings to pellets because they take up less travel space, last longer, reduce odor much better and in most places are slightly less expensive. We suggest starting with 2 bags per stall and add up to 1/2 of bag every day or so as needed. Pellet bedding is available for 10.00 per bag and you are welcome to bring your own.

Stalls must be cleaned twice daily in the morning and evening. Wheel barrels and forks are supplied for your convenience.

Water is supplied by hose at the end of the barn.

Saddle Racks and pallets for your tack and feed storage are supplied at each stall. PLEASE TACK YOUR HORSE AT THE BARN. If you are uncomfortable leaving your tack at the barn you may use a wheel barrel or your truck for transporting it from your trailer. THE TACKING OF YOUR HORSE AT YOUR TRAILER IS NOT PERMITTED. This policy is in place for the comfort and enjoyment of all guest and greatly cuts down on the fly population and odors at your campsite.
