Customized and Complete Care
Each horse has a customized care plan actively managed by our professional staff. Full Boarders enjoy accommodations in the 18 stalls located in our Upper Barn, or the 22 stalls located in the NEW Lower Barn. Stalls are cleaned 7 days per week with fresh shavings added as needed. Fans are installed in each stall to keep horses cool during the summer months.
Scots Ridge is known for its lush and expansive pastures. Of varying size and terrain, all of our fields have abundant grass, hay huts, and automatic water troughs. Most horses and ponies go out with carefully chosen companions in small groups; some have individual turnout. Schedules are tailored for the weather and individual horse needs.
Baby/Pasture Boarders utilize the Lower Barn for feeding/special care and live outside full-time in groups determined by gender, temperament, and any special needs.
Administration of medication, blanketing, and holding for vet and farrier services are provided for ALL Boarding levels at no extra charge. We are happy to order and deliver special diets and supplements purchased by clients. All clients have access to cross-ties, wash areas, feed room, laundry, and tack room. Whether you are riding or visiting with your horse, the farm is open all day, every day.
We are fortunate to have a team of talented vets and farriers who come to know each of our horses well and are at the farm regularly to provide wrap-around care. Handling for these visits is included in Board. Veterinary services (routine, special, and emergency) are provided by Dr. Matt Paxton and the team at Pinnacle Equine. This talented team of vets visit the farm regularly for preventative care (including dentistry) and bring their vast knowledge and experience to maximize the health and potential of each horse – from performance sport horses to retirees.

Our farrier is Donny Phillips who hails from a long line of talented Phillips farriers. From routine trimmings to advanced technical shoeing, Donny is respected for his superlative hoof care and trouble-shooting. He typically spends 3 days every week at Scots Ridge. Our staff handles his regular scheduling and coordinates with him for emergency fixes.
