Boarding

IMG_3430All boarder horses at Red Gate Farm are treated with the highest quality care. Grain and hay feedings are customized to the need of each horse within the Nutrena feed program. Timothy hay is fed in the paddocks to supplement the grass in the winter months; alfalfa is available for stall boarders. Supplements are permitted at the owner’s expense; the use of SmartPaks is highly encouraged!

We encourage boarders to place their horse on the Red Gate schedule for vaccinations, dental work, worming, and farrier visits. This will ensure your horse remains up to date on all of his necessary health work. A holding fee is required for this service (see Fee Schedule below).

To inquire about boarding, please contact barn manager Christie McKitrick: christina.mckitrick@gmail.com
