Boarding and Lessons

Spring Creek Park has several different boarding options  to meet the style that will suit you and your horses needs.

We offer Full care or part care and all horses get appropriate rug changes. Hard feeds can be made up by SCP or owners. All supplements must be provided by owners. As horses stomachs are delicate and bulk feeding is a major cause of Colic we feed three times a day. This minimises the health risks by not overfeeding them in 2 feeds and gives their stomachs more time to digest more efficiently.

 

We use only the best of feeds and hay. All our hay and chaff come from either Central West or Victoria. Our Chaff is triple sieved with no dust. We also wet down hard feeds and hay. Feed options available at SCP are as follows.

  • Triple sieved mixed chaff ( White or Green Chaff is also available on request)
  • Prime Lucerne Hay
  • Prime Pasture Hay
  • Teff Hay (For horses prone to founder)
  • Wheaten Hay

  • Cool Calm Pellets.
  • Maxiweight (for horses that need extra weight)
  • Prydes Old Timers (for aged horses)
