“You’re About To Learn
SECRETS To Horse Boarding
That Only An Insider
Would Know…”

Most horse owners have to rely on the services offered by a horse boarding stable…

Finding a home away from home for your horse can be a daunting experience, especially when you’re new to horses and have never lived with horses.

Throughout my journey as a boarder and barn owner I’ve seen a lot of horses live in conditions at horse boarding stables that have brought me to tears. Even boarding stables that are high caliber and have a good reputation! I’ve seen too many unhappy horses living in unsuitable, over crowded, and unsafe environments…

The problem is that when you’re new to horse boarding, when you don’t live with horses, how would you know:

  • what is considered safe and unsafe?
  • what the difference is between proper barn management and poor barn management?
  • what kind of questions you need to ask management?
  • what to look for in a facility?

unless someone pointed it out to you?

I certainly remember those days when I first started out and how clueless I was. I mean, don’t boarding stables automatically take care of all that and take the guess work out of it for me?

Well, no, UNFORTUNATELY NOT.

And I don’t want to see you go through the same experiences that I went through, and many of my boarders and friends.

So the purpose of my site and my book is to raise your awareness and help you be better informed before making that commitment to a horse boarding stable to look after your horse.

And with the upcoming season, why not pick up a copy of my book right now and fast track your learning?

Are you a barn owner or thinking about getting into the business?

Maybe you are on the other side of the fence and are wondering what it would take to make a living with horse boarding?

Questions like “How do I get the right boarders?”,  “The right horses?”, “How many horses can I keep on my property?”, “What should I charge for board?”, “Can I make money boarding other people’s horses?” are likely on your mind.

Most of us want to get into this because we love horses and it gives us an opportunity to live our passion. But we can’t ignore the fact that this is a labor intensive and costly business to be in. That doesn’t mean you can’t succeed, because you can. And it is a lot of fun.

But it’s all about how efficiently you set up your environment and business practices, and being aware of the pitfalls. By following some simple rules you can make it in this business and actually do what you love :)

Though my current book has been written for those looking for a horse boarding stable, it will give you lots of insights on good business practices in and around the barn that you could put into practice right away and get you off to a good start.

What is the cost of board and what is included? Are you making assumptions?

When I was new to boarding, and new to horse ownership, I didn’t know to pay attention to things like blanketing, type of feed, fly masks on and off. Actually, I paid attention to it, but was pretty clueless when it came to knowing what to look for or what were reasonable expectations to have. […]
