Our Farm Manager, Amanda Krogstad, also offers training for both horses and riders. She is certified in first aid and CPR and has extensive experience with hunter/jumpers and three day eventers. She and her partner, Tony Maronne, are significantly involved in the horse racing industry. Tony has a Louisiana trainer's license and years of experience in that area. Amanda and Tony offer complete training from starting/breaking, show ring, trail, to racetrack. Their rates are $500 per month plus the standard boarding rate at Cal's Farms. Multible horse discounts are available. Rider training for those age 6 and above is offered at a starting rate of $30 for a full hour private lesson. They also are very good at the varius body clipping styles. Discounted packages are available. Call for details, 985-231-8945.
We offer full stall board for $400 per month and pasture boarding for $200 per month which includes monthly worming. We are prepared to do overnight boarding for travelers or for those who are attending horse shows in our area. Our full board consists of bedding, stall cleaning, and twice a day feedings. We provide hay (type according to availability) and supplemental feed. A daily turnout is included in this package. Our Barn managers, Amanda Krogstad and Tony Maronne, live in the residence above the barn which offers an additional level of monitoring of the horses in our care.
As a horse owner who has trailered up and down and across our country, I know that the assistance of other horsemen can be invaluable. We stand ready to offer any assistance in this area that we can, whether you board with us or not. I have found that the internet is a great tool for locating the services we need on the road. We feel very close to the sport of polo and are fortunate to own a condo at the Santa Barbara Polo and Raquet Club where we have been able to watch some of the best polo played in America. We want those in that industry to know that when moving their horse east to west, they are welcome at CAL'S FARMS. We have advertised on many stable directories, however, one site stands out, polo industry or not: http://www.polocenter.com.
