The Farm

Welcome to our farm!  We are located 6 miles south of Mt. Horeb Wisconsin. Our facility sits on 62 acres of rolling hills, woods and farm land. In addition to crops we cut and bale our own grass/alfalfa hay, so it’s never in short supply. The boarding facilities include a stable, two boarder barns, indoor and outdoor arenas and a 50′ round pen. Geldings and mares are paddocked separately with ample run-in shelters and daily pasture turn out. We use slow feeders for our herds to mimic a more natural “grazing” type eating pattern.



The Red Barn
With a new roof, new siding and fresh coat of paint the Red Barn has a whole new life. Accommodations in the Red Barn offer several grooming stalls, lots of natural light and ample tack storage.  This is the space used for stalling clinic horses and visiting lesson horses.

 

The Blue Barn
Our Blue Barn is where the main hub of activity is.  With 5 grooming stalls and access to the indoor arena, on most days you will find our boarders busy in here.  Clean, brightly lit and well ventilated it is a great spot to get ready for your ride.

 

 


The Arenas

The arenas are watered and groomed weekly.  Adjoining the outdoor arena is a 6′ tall by 50′ round pen.

 


The Paddocks & Pastures

Our paddocks are set up with separate gelding and mare herds. They have run-in shelters with access to water, free-choice salt and slow feed hay.  We also have a limited number of private and semi-private paddocks.

In order to maintain pasture health we monitor weather, footing, mow monthly, allow rotational grazing and add soil amendments yearly. Horses are allowed on grass for half days in order to prevent over-grazing and laminitic issues. We turn out daily (as conditions allow.)

Semi-Private Paddocks  *limited availability
For an additional $50/month we have 3 semi-private paddocks. Each paddock has a 2 horse shelter with free choice salt dispensers, waterers and slow-feeder hay nets to provide consistent access to forage.  They also have access to small private pasture turn out, if desired.

Mini Pens
Mini pens are 30’x40′ small paddocks fully enclosed with 3 board oaks fences.  They are used for clinics, outside lesson days, horses that need convalescence and as a way to introduce new herd mates safely.  They also serve as our temporary accommodations for the quarantine on all new incoming boarded horses.  Additionally we offer these pens as overnight horse hotel housing.

There are mowed and maintained paths around our 62 acre property. Boarders are encouraged to take advantage of our quiet, beautiful environment whether walking their dog, running trails or riding with friends.

If you’re looking for more trail riding in our area, we are only a 15 minute drive to Donald Park. This wonderful equestrian park boasts 21 miles of riding trails. Our boarders take frequent opportunities to visit.
