Your Horses' Daily Routine...
Your horses' Daily Routine: 2 quarts of morning grain. All day turnout in large paddocks with hay, followed by grass pasture turnout (in season) then horses are led into their assigned stall, where stalls are cleaned daily, and 20 lbs of hay awaits to enjoy all night and up to 2 quarts of evening grain all included in Full Care Board
With Boarders coming from as far away as St. Peters, MO, Lake St Louis, MO and Carlinville, IL we take pride in knowing we are chosen as your horses' home. We never take this for granted. Taking pride in our work and commitment to your horses happiness is our number one priority

• No Charge - Removal of your horse’s winter blanket
During winter months, if the temperature moderates, with both high humidity and low winds, blankets may need to be removed in order to keep your horse from sweating. Wind speed is an important factor. If wind speeds are high, blankets may stay on. REMINDER- When a horse’s blanket is removed, it leaves the coat flat, making the horse vulnerable to the cold. A blanket cannot be put on a horse that has rolled in the mud. This gives you the option of grooming/ blanketing your horse yourself when the weather turns cold, or paying a small service fee for blanketing and grooming.
Phone in, or text the evening before, to have your horse’s blanket removed the following morning.
Pre-Authorize blanket removal – Stable management will be given instructions to always remove your horse’s blanket when the lesson horses have theirs removed.

Health info, for owners new to horses...
• Vaccinations and fecal exam administered by a veterinarian, average $120.00 to $180.00. Dental care, varies by horse, float teeth averages $170. Additional veterinary services are rare due to the personal attention given to each horse daily.
• Hoof trimming averages every 8 weeks and costs $40.00 to trim, $80 for shoes if wanted. If your horse is quiet, cooperative, you do not need to be present for hoof trimming when using the stable farrier.

Having boarded my show horse from 1979 - 1999 before our family began Rocky Branch, I, over time became very aware of what worked, and of course what didn't. Haviing been "a client" has shaped every aspect of RBS into not just a home for your horse but a place to enjoy spending your day.
