Horse Boarding at The Ranchette Veley Equestrian Center
 
Horses residing at The Ranchette Veley Equestrian Center just north of St. George, Utah live the happiest and healthiest life they possibly can. My entire day revolves around looking out for your horse, feeding your horse, turning it out and providing top quality care. I am offering a new boarding option for those who like more hands-on involvement with their horse, and for those who also may be on a budget.
 
Board is $200 per month and includes:
A beautiful stall inside the barn, most with attached runs
Turnout and turn in
Fresh water
Blanketing
Fly Masks
I will feed food that you provide or buy from me in advance (hay $13 a bale and/or grain)
You must clean your own stall at least 4 days a week so your horse has a clean, dry place to sleep at night. You can purchase shavings from me if desired in advance for $12 a bale.
Supplements can be measured and fed at an additional cost.
A $200 deposit is required for this arrangement.
Please call or text Gail at 435/231-0127 if you are interested.  Thank you!!

Letters/Kind Thoughts from Past Students
 
Since Facebook shares past memories I thought I would do the same this week. At the Ranchette Veley Equestrian Center near St. George, Utah students have confidence-building experiences each week. However, long before I moved to Utah, I lived and worked in Ohio. When I moved here in 2002, here were some parting words from students of mine:
 
"You have helped us lay a solid foundation in our training that we will have a lifetime to build upon and we will be forever grateful to you for that. Whenever we ride or spend time here at the barn, we will be hearing the echoes of your voice reminding us that 'you're better than that."  - Mary and Alisha dressage and jumping riders
 
"Along with encouraging me to become the best rider I could, you've inspired me to be a better person. You were never in a bad mood and you were always patient and caring towards both your students and your equine friends. I always left your presence feeling good." - Kelly dressage and jumping
