Boarding and Training at Virtue Stables

Training

Training is done based on a time frame the horse needs.  We take our time and work with the horses from the ground up!  Not every horse is the same so neither is each program.  While some of the horses come to us for training in competition others come to us to work through difficulties and others come just to brush the cobwebs off from hanging around in fields having not done much as of late.  Training is completed by our trainer and from time to time a working student may work on the ground or lunge training, while supervised by our trainer.  Training fees begin at $250 per month.  Does not include board, regular vet care, hoof care, and other objects or needs of the individual horse.


Please contact us with your individual needs and we will do our best to work with you and your budget.  We do at times work off a waitlist for training and sale spots.  Best to not wait until the month you desire training to sign yourself or horse up!  Give us a call soon. We do get horses in for sale and on month to month basis as well as long(er) term so open spots can and do change from month to month.  

Boarding

Our stalls have been designed to allow maximum air flow throughout the barn.  Our barn eves reach 10' in height with the stalls reaching 8'.  We added grill work between all the stalls, the fronts and sliding doors.  This is a brand new barn and we are building each stall as needed, when all built we will have 11 stalls.  The floor of the stalls are matted on top of two different sized stone layers and clay under that to help with drainage and comfort for the horses and ponies.  


We do not have public boarding, in that everyone boarding here is part of our active lesson and/or training program.  We LOVE having clients who are active in the daily/weekly lives of their horses and want the best for their horses as we do.


Please feel free to give us a call to answer any questions you may have or to set up a time to visit us see what we are in the process of building to make VS even better.
