Equine Arrivals and Admittance

When your horse arrives, our professional staff will work with your veterinarian to develop an individual rehabilitation plan. We consult with the referring veterinarian and follow the veterinarian's counsel in providing the rehabilitation treatments and care required to heal or rehabilitate your horse as safely as possible. The patients are monitored around the clock with qualified staff on the grounds at all times to ensure the safety and care of each animal. When horses arrive without an attending veterinarian, the owners are given a list of veterinarian referrals for rehabilitation counseling to ensure an optimum outcome.

Equine Health & Safety

Before a horse is admitted into the facility, the stall is cleaned and sanitized to prevent passing any disease or fungus between horses. Each stall will be provided with new bedding for patient's comfort and safety. Saddle Creek Farm prefers that all horses are up to date on their immunization and are insured. If immunization updates are needed, we can administer them for you.
