GUEST HORSE STAY LENGTH 

Stay Length Options.

Short, medium, long term or lifetime boarding is offered for guest horses.

Short to medium term boarding could be appropriate, but is not limited to, horses whose owners are posted overseas for work or military duty, are taking extended holidays, suffer family crisis, illness, have personal or time pressures, would like to spell their horses in a safe and nuturing environment, have a temporary lack of accommodation for their horse due to injury, drought, flood, bushfire or for many other reasons. 

Long term and life boarding may suit owners who are no longer able care for their horse, what ever the horses age,  and require a safe and horse-friendly home where their horse can live out its days in peace while experiencing the best of care in a natural environment.

Life boarding may also suit owners who would like to make arrangements for the ongoing care of their horses in their will.

Reserving a Place for a Guest Horse:

For peace of mind, the option of reserving a place for a Guest Horse at Waterfall Creek is available, but unfortunately reserved places are limited. 

Reserving a place requires the payment of a small weekly fee which guarantees that a place will be available at any time for a horse that meets the "Guest Horse Requirements".  The guest horse place will be reserved as long as the fee continues to be paid but will be forfeited if payments cease. A reserved place can be cancelled at any time by the owner.  Reservation fees are not refundable.
