A very small ranch with a 2-acre total area and foster home for all types of animals, built for containing ill animals. A larger boarding facility is also available for a monthly fee, which includes ground work and handling as well as pasture.
We work from the ground up, like building a pyramid. Horses are exposed to dogs, cats, children, and mechanical sounds throughout their days, laying down the foundation of the "good-horse pyramid".

Rate: $150/Month , Number of Stalls: 1
