Welcome to the Riding 4 Life Ranch!
UPDATE! Our newly installed covered arena is just a few weeks away from completion. We're just waiting on fencing and footing and we will be all set to ride under cover this winter!
Our rustic little ranch is host to a range of horsemanship and therapeutic programs, clinics, camps, and events as well as home to many of our teaching horses. We pride ourselves in a practical, down to earth approach to horsin' around and we believe that everyone should have access to its benefits should they choose to.
NO VACANCY CURRENTLY.
Two spots tentatively available December 1st, 2023
Our facility features a 10 acre property divided by oxbows and located alongside the Oliver Hike and Bike Trail. Boarder amenities include ample shared tack room space, a 90' x 130' outdoor sand arena, 60' x 110' covered arena, round pen, trailer parking, feed room, and off property access to the trail mentioned above.
Each boarder pen is equipped with a water tub, a run-in shelter, well maintained footing, rubber matting inside the run-in, and tank deicers through winter. Our live in staff top up waters daily and generally keep an eye on all the going on daily.
We also believe that slow feeding horses is a best practice wherever possible. The majority of our daily roughage is fed using slow feed hay nets and all boarders must participate in this practice if they wish to board with us. The use of a slow feed net is also included in our board fees.
Our approach to board fees differs from most facilities in our area. We want to ensure that our clients have a good grasp of the costs related to their horse's daily care and the challenges we face as a facility to serve you and your horse affordably and without compromising what we believe is a healthy and practical standard of care.
We also hope to encourage owners to be involved in their horse's daily care and participate in our barnyard community and horsemanship development on a regular basis.
