After reading Contrary Farmer Gene Logsdon’s post about the effects of exporting hay overseas, we are extra grateful for our pasture.

We have boarded horses since 1989 and take pride in our standards of horse care at Poudre River Stables. These are specifics that people often ask about. Please visit our rates page for pricing and intake requirements.
We get a lot of work-wanted inquiries here at Poudre River Stables, especially from those attending college or moving to the Fort Collins, Colorado area. As a self-care horse boarding stable, we do not generally need a lot of outside help because our clients tend to help each other. Then again, self-care clients sometimes need relief too. We thought we would share the wealth of talent inquiring with us out on our social networks. If you are qualified for an equine or stable-related job, and you are in the Fort Collins area, send us your inquiry. We will look it over and reply back to you for verification. We will not publish inquiries that do not reflect well upon us or you. For everyone’s protection, please also provide your own background check from the Colorado Bureau of Investigation as part of your inquiry. Appropriate photos for publication welcome.
We currently have openings in our barn and the upper-level sheds and pens. Please check our rates page for more information.
We are back to our normal two-week quarantine for incoming horses, and will resume accepting new horses in 10 days.
Good riddance, V.S.
This was a rough summer, disease-wise. Thank you for your support as we sacrificed to keep our horses healthy.
Watson, our blind Golden Retriever puppy, was born July 12. About the time his eyes opened, we noticed Watson was acting funny, and took him to an animal eye doctor. Watson’s eyes are OK, but the circuitry to his brain is not. Watson is blind due to hydroencephaly from an infection or virus in the womb. It turns out that sight is not a dog’s main sense, and already Watson is adapting well. We see him as a sign of hope for all of us who are less than perfect.
