FACILITY AND CARE

Our #1 priority is the horse’s care and well-being.  We have built enormous grass turn-out paddocks with safe three rail fencing for individual turn-out so horses can move around and eat grass as horses were meant to.

In addition to all the turn-out fields we have an outdoor sand arena, a fenced large grass training arena and many riding trails to keep horses fit and happy.  We have a small number of outside resident horses from young horses just starting work to space for retired or injured horses to convalesce under daily individual management.

There are three separate heated barns and a 70’x180’ heated indoor arena.  Horses love the quiet environment provided by the smaller barns and enjoy 12×12 stalls that are deep bedded with shavings and have water buckets so that horses daily water intake can be monitored.  We offer individual feeding programs with locally sourced hay and grains to meet each horse’s specific nutritional requirements.  Horses are blanketed and un-blanketed appropriately for daily turn-out and monitored while outside. We coordinate farrier and veterinary appointments for all horses, including regular and emergency needs.

Ironstone horses are not only cared for throughout the day but are tucked in at night by the facility owners and live-in staff who know each and every horse and their behaviours.
