Kent Hill Farm has been a premier facility for the last 16 years. We are very fortunate to
have a combination of a great staff, trainers, and facility that will bring out the best
in horse and rider. Most boarders notice the peacefulness of the facility, and how that
atmosphere brings out the best in their horse. With onsite management and our dedicated

We feel that turnout is a priority for our horses health and wellbeing so the
entire herd is turned out to pasture 7 days a week for at least 6 hours. The 30 acres is
divided into pastures of various sizes from 10 acres, to smaller one-acre pastures. Your
horse can be turned out alone or with a buddy provided they are happy together.
Our chief veterinarian, Dr. Laura Austgen Smith DVM, PhD, has insured that our herd is
free of parasites. All incoming horses are wormed upon arrival; fecal samples are checked
on all horses once a year to insure that our worming program is effective.Since this
program has been in place our herd has been free of parasites.
Our prices are inclusive of full care; there are no hidden fees added on for
blanketing, turnout or supplement administration.
