Boarding & Training

The Southlands Foundation has a long history of offering a limited amount of stalls to clients who wish to board their horses at our wonderful facility in order to participate in our lesson and training program. We are committed to equine education in both horsemanship and husbandry, and welcome clients who own their own mounts.

Southlands provides quality care in a safe, pleasant, and workmanlike atmosphere. The horses are turned out daily in board fenced paddocks. Our stalls are with good ventilation and are partially rubber matted. Stalls are cleaned thoroughly every day, including most holidays, and picked several times a day. Our deworming, supplements and nutrition programs are evaluated by our veterinarian. Farrier and other specialized services such as acupuncture, chiropractic, energy balancing and massage are available on a regular basis.

Our main barn has fire-heat sensing systems with remote continuous monitoring. Theft security systems are in all tack rooms, office and supply areas, and are remotely monitored. We are fully insured to protect our clients, horses, property, and staff.

Our extensive facility includes both indoor and outdoor rings, cross country fences, and an extensive acreage of fields and wooded areas open for mounted adventures. Our trainers share the goal of producing well rounded, soundly educated mounts that are comfortable and safe in a variety of environments. For those who enjoy competition, we offer our own hunter/jumper and dressage schooling show series and travel to both unrated and rated USEF competitions throughout the year. To broaden the scope of our education, we offer regular clinics with highly regarded professionals in a variety of disciplines.
