Options for every budget
It is our philosophy that every horse should be seen by a trainer, without their blankets, at least once per week in order to maintain fitness and optimum health. Each one of our boarding packages includes $160 credit towards lessons or training rides with our world-class trainers. Rates Effective June 1st, 2022.

Frequently asked questions
Horses are turned out at 5 pm in summer and come in at 7 am. During the winter, they go out after breakfast around 7am and come in around 4:30pm. There is a short period in spring and fall when horses are out 24/7 and come in for meals. Swing season is above 55 to below 80 degrees. We believe horses do best with regular turnout.
The best way to schedule lessons is to use our online scheduling program. If you need a login/password contact your trainer directly. He/She can set you up with one. Training rides are best scheduled with your trainer.
We feed mostly Purina brand feeds, and coordinate all dietary needs with a PHD level nutritionist. All supplements must be pre-packaged, and the SmartPak system seems to be the most economical. Our hay is sourced in Pennslyvania. It comes from the same farmers each year that know how to grow fabulous horse hay. We have it tested regularly, to ensure all aspects of your horses diet is taken into consideration.
We do not just board horses. Every horse kept at Bascule must be in a training program, or in a regular lesson program.
Trailer parking is available. There is no charge.
For liability reasons, we do not allow outside trainers. We believe we have some of the best training and instructors in the area, and are confident you will find someone (or several someones) you love working with!
