Silverthorn Farm is a 137-acre horse farm with a 17 stall barn. As a renovated 150 year old dairy barn, our facility offers both history and rustic charm. We currently have two sand rings; one 125 x 210' with lights and a 200 x 225' ring. Our facility also provides over 30 acres of wooded trails. We offer a wide range of opportunities for any goal-oriented rider. A cross-country course from Pre-amoeba to Novice levels is in the works for 2018!
Silverthorn Farm offers
both stall board and pasture board. With 70-acres of pasture, we can
provide ample turnout in small herds or individual paddock turnout.
Stall board includes twice daily feeding, hay, stall cleaning, blanketing/fly spray and turnout. Individual turnout is available for an additional fee. The outer 12 stalls are 12x12', while our inner 5 stalls range from 10'x12' to 10'x16' . All stalls are matted and amply bedded. $600/month.
Pasture board includes seasonal blanketing/fly spray, twice daily wellness checks, and feed up to twice a day for an additional fee. $375/month.
Our staff thoroughly inspects each horse twice daily for injuries, lameness, missing shoes and general wellness. Staff and employees are educated and experienced to handle most medical issues. We can provide first rate care for the injured or ill horse in the form of bandage changes, wraps, medication administration, colic watches, etc.
