Horse Boarding at NVHA

NVHA has a Co-op managed horse boarding program. It is available to members that have been with the club for a minimum of 12 months.  Membership does not guarantee you will be able to board as it is available on a first come first serve basis. 

Please review the Co-op job description about what is required of a potential boarder. The boarding program is managed via the Coordinators along with the BOD. We have a 9 stall barn with tack room and runs as well as 8 larger paddocks with a shelter. 

Hay is procured by each horse owner, but owners frequently organize a group delivery. 

While turn-out to pasture is not guaranteed the Co-op takes great pride in consistently figuring out adequate groups to turn out as many horses as possible.  Your horse must be halterbroke and trained sufficiently to be handled by any person in the barn

The Co-op is full at this time, however if you are interested in boarding in the future, please send a message to the waitlist inquiry manager.
