Boarding Information and Rates

The Hiwassee College Equestrian Center offers both full-care and pasture board for the public and for Hiwassee College Students. The Center is run by a professional and caring staff whose main concern is the well-being of each horse on the farm. The Center is open to all disciplines of riders, and to all breeds of horses. 

 

Full-Care Board

  • 13.5′ x 15′ box stall with rubber mats and fans

  • Stalls cleaned daily. Fresh bedding added as needed

  • Twice daily feedings

  • Farm-grown mixed-grass hay

  • Horse-safe fencing in lush pastures

  • Small group turn-out and herd turnout in larger pastures

  • Blanket service (Full-care board horses will have blankets changed out at AM feedings and at PM feedings if necessary. Blankets are removed if the temperature rises above 50 degrees)

  • Fresh water in clean buckets and troughs

  • Access to riding arena, trailer parking, bath facilities, secure tack rooms, and riding trail

Supplements must be provided by owner and are fed at no extra charge

 

Pasture-Care Board

  • Small group turn-out and herd turnout in larger pastures

    Horse-safe fencing in lush pastures

  • Fresh water in clean buckets and troughs

  • Access to riding arena, trailer parking, bath facilities, secure tack rooms, and riding trails

  • Blanket service available for pasture-care board horses at $50.00 per month (in addition to regular monthly board) during the months that blankets are required

 

IMPORTANT: Pasture-board horses are fed in a group situation. While every effort is made to make sure that your horse gets his adequate feed and supplements, it is not guaranteed that another horse will not eat your horse’s feed. If you wish to feed grain and/or supplements, or if your horse is a hard-keeper, then full-care board is a better choice.
