Emergency Prep

If you must evacuate there is no need to leave your horses behind to ride out the storm. When a storm approaches, call to reserve stall(s) so we know you are coming. Bring your own feed, hay, bedding, and buckets. You will be responsible to care for your own horse(s). ALL HORSES MUST HAVE A CURRENT NEGATIVE EIA CERTIFICATE (COGGINS). Horses will not be allowed on the grounds without proof of negative EIA.
