Retirement Boarding

Horses are retired for a number of different reasons. Whether retirement is due to age, lameness or a change in owner goals, locating a quality retirement facility is an important task. Our beautiful, quiet 54 acre farm offers plenty of great grass, high quality hay and daily inspections by Katherine Burke Johnson, the owner and an equine veterinarian. Katherine has been riding and competing horses since a young age and has 13 years of experience as a veterinarian. She specializes in lameness and is certified in acupuncture and chiropractic therapies. Dragonfly Farms is only twenty minutes away from a state of the art equine hospital, Woodside Equine Clinic. Our farm can offer transportation.

At Dragonfly Farms we understand how important your horse is and that you want the best for him in his retirement. Our full service facility offers both field and full board with regular grooming, blanketing in the winter, individualized nutrition plans, medication administration and holding for the vet and farrier. Your horse will be cared for as if it were our own. You are welcome to visit your horse as often as you wish. Some of our boarders come every day, while others live out of state and visit when they can. Either way, your horse will receive the consistent care that you would expect from a quality boarding facility.

Field board is $375/month. Stall board is $475/month. Both include supplement or medication administration, 2 - 3 x daily feeding, hay, blanketing, grooming, holding for the vet/farrier and any other routine maintenance.

Please contact us to set up a visit to the farm. We welcome the opportunity to show you around and discuss the retirement needs of your equine companion.
