Boarding Services

We offer a ‘self-care’ and a ‘partial-care’ boarding options.  In both options Starting Point Stables handles the physical feeding in the AM and PM, and the turn-out/bring-in of all boarded horses.

Feeding times vary depending on the season, but we do an AM feeding and a PM feeding.  Turn-out schedules are;

  • Winter (typically December – mid March) out during the day and in the stall at night.
  • Rest of the year out at night and in the stall during the day.

We do try to leave the horses out as much as possible.  This means during unseasonably reasonable weather (for example the high 50’s at night in the winter, or the low 80s with low humidity in the summer) horses may be left out for 24 hour periods.  This is when we give the stalls a good airing, or utilize the time to catch up on other barn maintenance tasks.
