We keep our boarders up-to-date on what's going on!

A comment about our facility.
I am so excited to see an active barn where so many people ride!

We also have an "out the gate" group e-mail that we notify
our boarders, neighbors and boarders from other boarding
facilities around the park that we e-mail out when we have
an organized ride.  Out the gate means we will be riding
out the gate at Sitter Downs exactly this day/time.

Chiropractor visit, no doubt, all horses felt better.
Dr Huenefeld, Adrian, MO, 816-297-2006
Apollo...I feel so much better. Acupuncture, only way to go.
Boone cracked like popcorn....he has to feel better. Bandit didn't have any back issues, but his hocks were sore.
Cody, I'm 16 yrs old, time to have my back adjusted. Jasper was not a happy camper, he was out everywhere.

Round Pen

We have had 2 round pens.  One was a solid
oak wood wall, 6ft, eventually went to wood heaven; the other was made out of the green panels.  No go, they simply aren't strong enough. 

These are Powder River panels.

Kelly is doing her happy dance! The pen is going to be a great addition.
This horse wanted to pull away from you. This horse has an interesting extended trot. He is getting smarter.
Our sand pile. Early morning chore. Sand definitely wears them out quicker.
The horses are on a regular deworming/rotating schedule,
at a minimal cost to you

Winter Chores
Getting ready to feed. Splitting the bale. Filling the hay bunk.
Getting ready to feed. The big bales are split and fed into the bunks. The hay bunks were built by George.  We do feed some hay on the ground; however, during wet weather, this is where the herd eats.
Removing the string. This is tricky. Eating Healthy
How many boarding facilities remove the string? We would not recommend this to everyone. Eating healthy.
Hay storage Hay feeders Winter riding
Hay storage Hay is fed 1 to 3 times per day. Many of our boarders ride all year.
We have been in the boarding business 22 years. We are easy to find. Check out the pastures.
