As your horse gets older and is no longer able to withstand the rigors of showing or riding, it becomes a difficult task to find a suitable place for your beloved friend and companion to relax and enjoy the golden years of retirement. We here at Phantom Brook Farm offer superb retirement packages for the older equine members of the family.

We have had the privilege to care many extraordinary retirees. Whether a special equine family member or a World Champion Saddlebred, each is special in our minds and is treated as such.

We offer complete and specialized care for the equine senior citizen such as:

Standard boarding package basics as listed under our "Boarding" web page
Specialized feed depending on the condition
Addition of feed supplements (e.g. joint and hoof care) - cost of supplements billed separately.
Specific rotational worming schedules depending on need and condition of the horse
Fly treatments for the summer months

We encourage visitations by you during the retirement stay. If you cannot visit, we can arrange to send you periodic photos and updates on the health and well being of your companion.
