At the  moment we are noy accepting boarders because we are preparing to move.

Pasture and stall self-care stall board at Touchstone Acres is available year round. There are a variety of stall sizes available in our renovated, 14-stall facility. We provide high quality care, with an abundance of good hay, some home grown; shavings or sawdust as available, and several choices of feed. We highly recommend 24x7 turnout on our lush pasture as the most natural and healthy way to keep your horse. The opportunity for constant movement helps prevent colic, gives horses plenty of exercise, and minimizes boredom. 

We recommend pasture board for weanlings to riding age especially.
