Boarding

We offer three different levels of boarding depending on the services you and your horse require.

  1. Pasture Board
    For $345 per month your horse will be in a grass pasture with other horses, given hay twice daily, 12:12 minerals free choice, de-wormed, and a spot will be given for a saddle and grooming tote in the tack room.  With this level you do not have access to a stall, but we do have places for you to tie your horse near the tack room.
  2. Full Board
    For $500 per month your horse will be given a stall to use during the day (8-3), fed twice daily up to 3lbs per feeding, hay twice daily, turn out on a grass pasture with other horses, 12:12 minerals free choice, de-wormed, and a spot will be given for a saddle and grooming tote in the tack room.
  3. Full Board Plus
    For $550 per month you get the same options as the Full Board with the addition of having your horse in until 6:00 pm.

If you require additional services such as private turn out, call our office for pricing.

After School Horsemanship and Leasing Program

It has been shown over and over that horses are great teachers of patience and responsibility for children and young adults.  The lessons that horses teach are carried over into adulthood creating a sense of confidence within each equestrian.  This is why Wandering Trails is offering a new after school program.  For $50 per week you can spend your afternoons learning about and caring for a horse designated as your own.  You will be taught how to care for your horse from top to bottom.  This means everything from cleaning stalls and waters to grooming and tacking your horse.
You will be individually advanced based on your own motivation and comprehension.  There will also be off campus trips such as beach rides, barrel shows, and/or camp outs that you will be able to attend.  More advanced riders will be eligible to participate in these activities.  Eligibility will be dependent upon each rider’s advancements and accomplishments.  There will be extra fees to attend off campus activities.
Due to popular request, you will purchase your own grooming supplies; this way you can find tools that will best fit your hands and movements.  Of course, these supplies will be yours to keep.  You can either purchase the supplies on your own or we will take you to the tack store.  If you decide to buy these supplies on your own, here is a list of the needed supplies: metal curry, hard brush, soft brush, mane and tail comb, hoof pick, sweat scraper, wash mitt, and a bucket or tote in which to carry these supplies.  Bridles, halters, and saddles will be provided; however, if you would like to purchase your own bridle and halter, you may do so.  If you choose to purchase your own tack and grooming supplies, please keep the receipts and tags in case they are not correct.
If you would like to sign up for this program, please call our office.
