Are you considering boarding your horse at a self-care barn?
Choosing a self-care barn can be very rewarding for you and your horse. It is much different from a full-care boarding facility. Both have their pros and cons. But it is up to you to determine what is the best fit for you and your horse. It is a big decision and not one to take lightly. You want to make sure that your horse is in a safe environment and is in good hands.
We have boarded our horses at a few different facilities throughout the years. From our experiences, we have learned the pros and cons to each type of boarding facility (full-care vs self-care). In addition to this, we have come up with an extensive list of questions that we feel are important to ask when seeking a new boarding facility and when determining whether or not a self-care barn or a full-care barn is best for us.

Not only will you be able to spend a lot of quality time with one another but you will be in charge of everything from the type of hay your horse will eat to installing fans during the summer in their stall. By boarding with a self-care barn, you will be in charge of daily chores, such as feeding of breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as daily turnout, cleaning of stalls and water buckets, as well as additional chores around the barn and for your horse.
