OUR

FACILITY

BOARDER BARN

We have 22 spacious 12’ X 12’ stalls and excellent help to take great care of your animals. We have 2 dusk to dawn lighted rings.  We also have an abundance of room for turnout.  We have smaller fields for those who need less grass, or have issues with group turnout.  And we have larger fields that have 6 or fewer animals in each field.

Our turnout remains the same throughout the year.  Because we are mainly a children’s barn, the horses get turned out at night and stay in during the day year-round.  This helps keep the energy level of the horses manageable.  We have found we have a lot fewer injuries to riders and horses during the winter this way!  If we have severe weather, we keep the horses in at night. 

 

We use Virginia Equine as our vet and Phillips Farrier for our shoeing needs.

LEASING PROGRAM

We do have a small half lease program.  JREC has 3-4 ponies and 2 horses we lease out on an annual basis when available. First choice goes to those who are at The Riding School and want to take the “next step”.  

 

A half lease costs $400 per month plus the cost of lessons.  The cost covers 3 days riding per week and a share of the costs incurred for the care of the animal including board, shoes and vet costs. The lessee is additionally responsible for tack, minor vet care, and blanket maintenance.

Occasionally, we also have private clients who wish to lease their horses/ponies out on a half or full lease basis.   The cost associated with private leases vary depending on the animal.

STALL

BOARD

Stall board is $505.00 /month. 

This includes: 

  • All grain -- we have two choices from Southern States.  If you need a different feed, you must provide it.

  • Hay and water.

  • Stall cleaning two to three times per day.

  • Minor vet care.

  • Blanketing.

  • Holding for the farrier.

  • Minor holding for the vet (if the horse needs to be ridden for the vet, there is an extra fee).

 

Normal shoeing is added to your monthly bill.  Anything extra will be billed by the farrier.

 

If you have a stall, a lesson a week is mandatory ($185.00 / month extra).  New horses, as of 1/2018, will incur a $50.00 / month fee if your horse or rider is unable to take lessons for a month or more. In this case the $185.00 monthly lesson fee will not be invoiced.

FIELD

BOARD

Field board is $345.00 / month.

This includes all the same services as stall board except for the stall.  The horses live outside 24/7.

ADDITIONAL

SERVICES

If a horse needs lay-up time, it is $5/night for spending the night inside, or $100/month extra for long term layups.  If a field boarder needs to have lay- up, this fee applies as well as the difference in stall board and field board per day.
