Layup/Continuing Care Boarding

We offer layup boarding with individualized care for horses recovering from illness, injury, surgery, or other procedures requiring time for healing and rehabilitation.  We believe that the care of a horse during this period can have a significant impact on how well it recovers from an injury or illness.

Our close proximity to the William R. Pritchard Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital makes our facility an ideal place where horses can receive individualized care and convenient follow-up visits at the hospital.

We also welcome horses that are not patients at the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital and would be happy to work with your own private veterinarian in the care of your horse.

We operate 24 hours/day, 7 days/week year-round and have ready access to veterinarians and specialists at the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital.  Interested clients may request a private tour of our facilities.

Board includes the following:

  • Housing in individual 12 x 12-foot stall with 12 x 22-foot run, located in one of our 17-stall barns
  • Bedding (shavings or straw, based on medical requirements or client preference)
  • Feed (alfalfa, grass or oat hay, based on medical requirements or client preference)
  • Individualized grooming kit to take home upon departure that includes: thermometer, brush, hoof pick, and curry comb
  • Daily grooming (brushing and hoof cleaning)
  • Two 10 minute hand walks each day

Medical care is provided by trained equine health technicians who are on call 24 hours/day, including a night staff.  The technicians will follow instructions provided by the horse's veterinarian to change dressings, take vital signs, and give medications as well as provide exercise in the form of hand-walking or set-up in our Equineciser.

Transportation to and from the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital for follow-up visits can be conveniently provided.  Our close proximity to the hospital minimizes transport time and stress on your horse.

Other options can be provided at the owner's request, such as:

  • Specialized feed or supplements
  • Specialized grooming and bathing
  • Farrier service
