Agistment for ponies and hacks..... situated between Dubbo and Gilgandra.

 

Agistment packages available

10% Discounts for second or subsequent horses for all paddocks. 

Please note that a non refundable booking fee of $50.00 per horse is required. This will be taken off your first month's agistment. No paddocks will be held without a booking fee. An Agreement and Waiver will need to be signed before horses are allowed to be agisted. 

Natural minerals can be fed to horses only in private paddocks.  This eliminates the need for paste wormers and allows your horse to source the right amount of minerals he/she needs to balance their body.  The cost for this is an extra $5.00 per week and is added to the morning and afternoon feeds.

Please see  Accounting for how fees are worked out. We bill by the calendar month, not every 4 weeks.   The only extras you will incur will be for farrier, worming and vet fees.  If you choose to give your horse minerals, then a worming paste will not be used as this can lead to an overdose of copper in their system.

 Agistment of some of the Horses With FriendsThis is the most popular choice as many people just want to keep their horse safe and have all the facilities of an equestrian centre as well as the use of a safe riding area. These horses are not rugged. If you wish your horse to be fed and/or rugged, it needs to be in its own private paddock (The "Solitaires" Paddock).

The Horses With Friends are rotated onto fresh grass as the need arises. All of the paddocks have a generous number of shade trees to stand under to keep nice and cool. All of the pasture is mineralised and fertilised regularly. We have an assortment of native perennial grasses in the pasture, that is based on palatability from a horses point of view, not a humans! You are welcome to come and see your horse during the day at any time throughout the week as well as the weekend. Horses will be brought back close to the main facilities for the weekends, if they are in one of the farther paddocks.

Horses are to arrive in good condition.  Any horse that is in poor condition will need to be fed to bring them up to a reasonable condition before turning them out in the paddock.  The cost of this will be at owners expense. 

As all horses are quarantined for 2 weeks, it may be necessary for the Horses With Friends to be fed hay during this time. This depends on the season. The cost of the hay will be deducted from your monthly agistment fee. However if there are any extra feed expenses over your monthly fee, then this will be at your cost. The amount will depend on his size,metabolism and the cost of hay at the time.
