Boarding

Boarding your horse at our private facility which rests on 24 private acres of gently rolling pastureland, you can expect a safe and comfortable environment for your horse and peace of mind for you. Our barn is professionally run by our barn manager Heather Brown, and Owner Danielle Tursky, together they make sure that all the horses are happy and healthy.

  • What makes us different from many barns is our attention to detail and our extra effort to keep your horse happy.
  • We offer full board with large 12×12 stalls, and daily turnout.  Horses have fresh water at all times, fed twice daily and are properly cared for by the highest standards.

Rice bran, black sunflower seeds and flaxseed pellets are added if requested to provide increased essential fatty acid content and higher caloric density. Organic trace minerals, yeast culture and added amino acids support optimal muscle function.  Only the best for our horses!

Horses may come to the farm on consignment where a variety of services are offered depending upon your individual specific needs.  On average we have sold consignment horses in under 2-3 months. Our service does all the leg-work that is required to complete a sale.

The farm assists buyers in finding the appropriate horse or assists sellers in marketing their horse by making contact with numerous professionals in the sport. 10% commission (“finders fee”) is due on purchased horses that are brokered by Second Chance Thoroughbreds.
