The Paddock Riding Club facility has 10 individual trainer barns on the property.  Our trainers and instructors are independent contractors offering a variety of services, equestrian support, and knowledge.

Boarding with a trainer:
(Recommended) Boarders may choose to board their horse within a trainer’s barn area with or without actually training with said trainer. This is for an extra fee (which is determined by each individual trainer).  The extra fee goes towards full-time care for your horse (as you specify) including daily exercise turn-outs. 

Independent Boarding:
If you choose to be an independent boarder, you will be responsible for exercising your horse on a daily basis. If you are unable to do so, then you’re responsible to notify Paddock Management or a trainer of your horse’s needs so arrangements can be made for an additional fee.  Stall selection is determined by Paddock management.

To determine which set-up is best for you and your horse, it is best to contact the trainers individually and/or Paddock management.  Whether you board with a trainer or board independently, your boarding contract is with Paddock Riding Club.
