The health and happiness of your horse is a top priority at White Aspen Ranch. We offer high quality boarding packages to all of our clients. All boarding packages include a customized feed program, individualized attention for your horse, daily turn out and so much more.
Interior Boarding Stalls
Our spacious interior boarding stalls are 12′ x 12′ and include automatic water and “Comfort Stall” flooring to lessen the stress on the horse’s legs. The walls are made from wood slats and iron tubing, and most stalls include a Dutch door for outside exposure. Stalls are cleaned at least once a day. Fresh air and exercise are an important aspect in keeping horses happy and healthy so they are turned out to pasture every day as weather permits. For mares with colts, we also offer a 24’ x 12’ stall area with a 24 x 24 run. So the mares can enjoy their babies in comfort. Barn and riding arena are heated in the colder winter months.
Exterior Boarding Stalls
Our exterior boarding stalls are 12′ x 24′ and include automatic water. These large stalls are enclosed with steel panels to help protect the horses from the elements. We clean each stall and change the wood shaving bedding every day to help keep the horses’ living environment sanitary. To insure that they are comfortable, all horses are blanketed as needed. When weather permits, each horse is turned out to pasture every day for fresh air and exercise.
Maintaining a healthy diet is vital and we strive to make sure each horse is given the best quality feed. All of our horses are fed twice daily a healthy diet that includes alfalfa, alfalfa/grass mixture and/or orchard grass inside their stalls. We also turn them out to pasture so they can enjoy grazing on native grasses when weather permits. To maintain the highest quality of our feed, White Aspen Ranch has a covered building for feed storage. All regular feed costs are included in your boarding fees.
White Aspen Ranch has a complete grooming area where horses can be washed, brushed, clipped and inspected. Horses are gentle creatures and love attention. Our caring staff members escort each horse to the pasture areas giving them much needed love and attention. Grooming is a special time for owners to bond with their horses so we ask that all owners to be responsible for grooming their own horses.
Rocky Mountain Equine is available on site for any veterinary needs. Appointments can be made by the boarder. We have a number of Farriers available at the barn. Moving horses can be stressful so we do watch for possible health concerns after each move. If we notice anything that is a cause for concern, owners will be notified prior to initiating the services of a veterinarian, or farrier, for explanation and approval. All veterinarian and farrier fees will be billed directly to the owner of the horse.
