What to expect when sending a horse to our stable
As an owner of a horse in the Keen Stable you are welcome to visit the barn area at anytime. If you are not yet an owner please call first so a convenient time for your visit can be arranged. We welcome anyone interested in becoming a horse owner to come for a visit to have your questions and concerns answered personally.
Dallas and Donna welcome phone calls and text to discuss any questions.
We take pride in our stable and offer the very best to each and every horse. Every horse is treated as an individual and not just a stall number as in other stables.
Individual training regiments are prepared daily for each horse.
Horses are careful looked at daily for changes in eating habits and temperatures are taken twice a day to insure a healthy training regiment.
Every horse in the stable has their legs iced on a daily basis. We provide ice from our personal ice machines. Diets are carefully regulated for each horse. Only top quality feed and hays are fed and we stay up to date on the latest nutritional breakthroughs.
Sets of horses are accompanied by a stable pony while going to and from the racetrack.
Our employees are thoroughly trained and practice good horsemanship.
Horses with special needs are usually met with one or more of our therapy options. We work hard to keep vet bills down by staying on top of the lastest in equine therapy.
"Owners are not only welcome but encouraged to visit the stable anytime.
Visitors please call to schedule a convenient time to visit the barn area."
Conner Epstein, Co-Owner of Hotlantic
Communication with your trainer is a very important part of a good working relationship. We appreciate owners that will call to check in on their horses and we will always take time to discuss what is important to you. Your calls are welcome anytime and your participation will help us work better together. Please call Dallas or Donna anytime you have a question or concern. We also provide 24 hour access to your horses through our online stable webcams so you can look in on your horses anytime.
From the youngest owner to the guy with just a small percentage of one partnership horse, you are always welcome to the stable for a morning training visit.
One thing is for sure. We will go the extra mile to do whatever we can for you and your horses.
Therapy Options Included In Your Day Rate
Unlike other stables that have to hire a Professional Equine Therapist when special therapy is needed we have chose to purchase our own therapy machines. By doing this we can provide treatment as soon as it is needed as well as offer it as a free service to our clients.
Other Therapy Options
Other therapies that may be used on your horses are provided at a discounted cost. We offer a state of the art Magna Wave therapy machine to work on body soreness and as a healing tool. We have had much success with this new therapy device and have seen horses not only improve dramatically but cut down healing time on most injuries in 2/3 of the time. By using this machine along with the Transpirator Breathing Machine, we have managed to reduce most vet bills by half.
Current Day Rates
Training fees are referred to as a 'Day Rate'. That is the fee a trainer charges per day to take care of you horses. That rate should include feed, hay, supplements, tack, labor and other fees directly related to the care of you horses. Extra charges you can expect to see will be from a farrier, veterinarian or equine dentist.
