If you are a horse owner, you need to take your horse to a boarding center for you to attend to other businesses. The facility management will clean, feed, and train your horse for the time you will be away, and you pay them some fees. Here are the tips to find a boarding facility that will be suitable for your horse.
First, you need to look at the amount of space available in that facility. Depending on the size and age of the horse, it will require a different size of space, and it may as well depend on how they are being managed. You need to evaluate the kind of practices that the staff carry out on horses, like feeding and cleaning, before taking the horse there. You are the one to make the judgement based on the size of pen, and stall that your horse will require. If the available staff are professionally trained, they are likely to manage the horses even if the space is limited.
You also need to look at the number of services that are available in the boarding, and whether there are qualified staff to handle them. Among these services are training and exercising. You need to engage the facility management and give them directives on how often the you want your horse to be trained and exercised. Before you can decide to take your horse to that boarding facility, it is important to look at the quality of that facility. It is prudent to go round the boarding facility to look at its general cleanliness, how staff members relate with people and horses, then make a decision. Before you can bring in your horse to that particular facility, you need to go there yourself, and conduct an evaluation of its condition. Upon request, you can be given an opportunity to tour the whole facility and judge it for yourself.
You need to evaluate the amenities of the facility and ensure that they meet the required standards. You don’t want to take your horse to a facility where it will be mistreated or suffer from stress. You need to look at the condition of the paddocks, fences, and the design of the other structures. In doing this, you will be able to know the security status of the facility. The restrooms and wash racks must be in a good condition, both hygienically, and physically. The hygiene levels within that facility is equally important to be considered. The feed stuff for the horses have to be kept clean and in a clean store where they will maintain their nutritive value. Kitchens and troughs need to be clean as well.
