Boarding at True North
Boarding at True North Farm is available as a service to our regular lesson and training clients. Weekly lessons or training are required of all boarders and are included in the board package. We offer wonderful facilities as well as a rich schedule of visiting clinicians and our own USEA ICP Certified coaches and talented MA licensed instructors. Our well trained and dedicated staff is committed to the highest standard of equine care and instruction. Our farm manager lives on site, providing round the clock supervision of our horses.
Your horse's health, safety and well being is our primary concern, thus, boarding includes: well ventilated 12x10 rubber matted stall, extensive daily turnout (weather permitting), hay 3 x daily, grain 2 x daily, and attention to your horse by trained staff who takes the time to get to know them.
To be competitive you need to be able to train effectively year round, keeping your horse in the best soundness and health, and your skills developing. Thus, our facilities include a beautiful Circle B 12 stall barn, a bright and airy indoor arena (142' x 70') with mirrors and Tru Tex fiber/sand footing, 2 stall post and beam run in barn, 3 stall, post and beam shed row pony barn with nice overhang, paddok run-in sheds, spacious (80' x 200') outdoor TruTex fiber and sand ring, wash area, secure, heated tack room and cubbies for all students, heated bathroom, secure grain area, safe, slip-board paddocks with good mix of sun and shade, a variety of show jumps, access to miles of beautiful trails for conditioning and pleasure riding, and lovely places to sit outside and talk horses or just enjoy the day. Our schooling xc course includes a variety of log style jumps, 2 ditches, a bank/drop complex, tire jumps, our new water complex and a variety of professionally built portable jumps for each level.
Like trails or want to get your horse super fit for the season? We are adjacent to Harwich Town Conservation lands which offer miles of beautiful trails for conditioning, pleasure riding, and hiking right from the property!
