In addition to the Barn/Boarding policy below, there are several policies that govern general behavior in the park by riders and other guests, including those boarding at the park. Please check out these policies so you are aware of the rules.
General Park Policies
Barn & Boarding Policy
In order to provide for the barn flow, barn function and general public safety and enjoyment:
- Boarders who rent month-to-month stalls/paddocks/runs from the Equestrian Park will receive a riding pass that allows the patron to use all available facilities within the Park.
- Owners, trainers and boarders are expected to keep alleyways clear of equipment, excess hay, bedding, etc.
- Heat lamps, space heaters, etc., are not permitted in the barns. Only incandescent light bulbs are allowed. Equine water heaters for water troughs are permitted, but must be approved by the Operations Manager.
- A $25/per month fee will be assessed for boarders using equine water heaters.
- Alcohol use is prohibited.
- You are responsible for your own tack. Please plan accordingly for safekeeping of your personal belongings. The Equestrian Park is not responsible for lost or stolen personal items.
- Smoking (including E-cigarettes) is prohibited, unless in a designated parking lot.
- Only one animal is permitted per stall. Mares and un-weaned foals are allowed with the advanced approval of the Operations Manager.
- Stalls are rented for the purpose of boarding horses. No other animals are to be kept in boarding stalls.
- Park and barn lights must be out by 11:00 p.m.
- Animals are not permitted to be tied to stall doors or stall fronts. Clients should use hitching rails, or their horse trailers to tie horses.
- You are responsible for keeping your stall areas clean. When vacating a stall, it is the boarder’s responsibility to clean the stall.
