Horse Boarding:  Retirement, Lay-Ups, Broodmares

When it's time to retire your horse, why choose between a traditional boarding facility where your horse is confined to a stall and you're forced to pay for any extra turn-out time, OR turning your horse out on massive acreages in the back country where they must fend for themselves. Hounds To Horses provides the best of both those alternative for your "non-rider" horse at Huston Ranch in a convenient location near the Hwy 78 & 15 interchange in the Harmony Grove area. We specialize in retirement and lay-up boarding...it's all we do!  There are no on-site trainers or waiting to use a turn-out here!  Absentee owners welcome!

Equine Retirement Services

 

Huston Ranch is a small, well managed facility with limited spaces available for retired and other "non riding" horses. This translated to very personalized and individual care for your horse. Owners live on site and handle the horses daily, so you can be assured of top quality care from experienced horse people who may identify issues before they become a serious problem. We work closely with our farrier and many veterinarians to provide the very best retirement or lay-up care which your horse deserves.

          Each resident horse has an individual stall so we can monitor eating habits. Choose from premium Bermuda grass or Alfalfa hay. Pelleted hay is available on request. Orchard hay is additional. With three meals per day, we can create customized feedings to suit your horse's needs. Stalls include a larger shelter, rubber mats in eating area, and auto waters. All horses receive DAILY turnout time for a MINIMUM of 4 hours. We offer 2 levels of boarding care to fit your needs:
