FAQ

FAQ

  1. What type of hay do you feed?

    We provide a good quality Alfalfa, Orchard Grass or a mix of the 2.  We also offer Purina Hay Stretcher pellets for an additional fee for those senior horses or horses that may not have good chewing teeth.

  2. Can I bring my own feed?

    Yes.  We understand every horse is different so we do not have a problem with you supplying your own feed however there is NOT a discount off board if you bring your own hay.

  3. Do you charge extra for Graining?

    No.  As long as your grain is bagged and ready for your horse we do not charge for graining.

  4. Do you bed the stalls?

    Bedding is provided in the shedrow but not in the mare motel or paddocks. If you would like bedding it is available at an additional fee of $50 per month.

  5. Where do the horses get turned out?

    horses are turned out either in the arena or in a 32x80 paddock. Horses are turned out alone unless requested otherwise.

  6. Do you have trails on the property?

    YES.  Meadowbrook is situated on 17 acres which you are more then welcome to ride on.  We have a very wooded section of the property which we have made switchbacks on so you can get your horse ready for the trails or just enjoy a trail ride without trailering out. 

  7. Do you give lessons and or provide training?

    No we do not.  We made the decision not to have any trainers run their business here in an effort to keep the facility a bit quieter and more of a calm family atmosphere free of competition.  That being said we welcome you to invite your trainer to give you lessons here or we can give you references of trainers who would be happy to come out to the facility to help you. 

  8. Do you provide a multi horse discount?

    No we do not. The risk, care, liability, work and love we show the horses is all the same for us whether there is 1 horse or 3 horses.

  9. Do you have trailer parking?

    Yes.  space is limited so it is a first come first serve regarding space.

  10. What is the main discipline at the barn?

    There isnt one.  We have a pretty even mix between English and Western, Jumping, Reining, Trails, etc. 

  11. Are you a larger facility?

    I would consider us right in the middle.  Our maximum capacity is 24 horses.  We have the larger facility amenities but the small facility atmosphere which is exactly what we wanted.  Everyone knows everyone and genuinely cares about each other and the horses

  12. Are children aloud at the facility?

    YES.  I have 3 children myself and they are often at the barn riding their horses in the arena or on the trails.  We are a family run and family oriented facility.  If you do bring children with you, you must have a liability release signed and on file with me and they must stay close by due to liability. there is a kid area by the arena where they will find a trunk full of toys and a little table to eat their lunch at.

  13. Do I HAVE to wear a helmet if im over 18?

    YES YES and YES! NO EXCEPTIONS WHATSOEVER. If you need help finding a helmet thats comfortable we are happy to help.
