Our 13-stall bank barn features a tack room, feed room, and concrete floors with matted stalls. We have three large fenced paddocks, two large pastures with a creek that runs the entire property (totaling 35 acres of pasture), two outdoor rings (190' x 90' and 190' x 65'), and access to horseback riding trails. Your horse is not bound to a paddock. Horses run free in the many acres of rolling pasture dotted with trees.
Thanks to Valley Creek, our pastures remain green and lush. Our horses enjoy relaxing in the creek during the summer, and it provides them with 24-hour access to fresh, clean water. We work with the Brandywine Conservancy to maintain the integrity and natural beauty of our equestrian center and property. We take the time to get to know your horse so that any changes can be detected immediately. Your horse is personally cared for and attended to by Maria. She makes a point of informing all boarders about the health and well-being of their horse. The Kenny family lives on the property so they can provide the proper equine care services for your horses.
Full board includes care by the owner and staff, large box stall, hay, and grain twice a day, administering of supplements, medication, daily visual checkup, stall cleaning once daily, de-worming on three month rotating schedule, use of riding arena, and access to riding trails and long turnout. You must provide blankets for your horse, fly mask if desired, and supplements. The grain included in the full and field board is up to 4 quarts per day of your choice of various feeds. Extra grain quantities are also available for an additional fee. Ponies are fed Enrich 32® at no additional charge. We also use Timothy Hay® and Orchard Grass®. Hay is fed up to 20 pounds per day (usually winter). Email to check with Maria for current rates at 484-798-8365.

Partial Full Board and Field Board
At our equine boarding facilities we offer two types of field board: full field (horse enjoys the outdoors every day and has access to large run-in shed. Limited availability and extra charge for stall use for sickness/injury). Partial full board - horses enjoy the outdoors daily but have their designated stall in the barn for inclement weather, sickness or injury. Not all horses are suited for full field board, and Sunset Valley Farm reserves the right to advise the owner regarding proper board for their horse (based on age, health, and breed of horse).
