The Arabian Horse Center provides horse boarding for Cal Poly Pomona students, faculty, and staff. Boarding is available under the following rules and conditions:
- Covered paddocks, 12x24, are available for a monthly fee of $350. All board payments are due and payable the first of each month, in advance.
- Only the student boarder is allowed to ride or work with the boarded horse. Horses may be ridden anytime between sun-up and sun-down during the summer months, and fall and spring quarters (April through December). Winter quarter hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Horses may be ridden in any of the three arenas when classes are not in the arenas, when lessons are not being given, or when shows are not being held. Riders must stay within the confines of the Arabian Horse Center unless authorized to ride on the nearby lanes by the Supervising Horse Trainer.
- All boarders will be required to exercise standard safety precautions when riding their horses.
- All boarded horses will be fed by Horse Center Staff members. Alfalfa hay will be the standard feed utilized. All horses will be fed twice a day, between 6:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. and between 3:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m.
- All boarded horses will have their paddocks cleaned daily by a Horse Center Staff member.
- Boarded horses must be up-to-date on preventative vaccinations and every horse must be accompanied by a health certificate upon arrival. All boarded horses must be maintained on a regular de-worming program.
- Veterinary and farrier services must be arranged individually by each boarder.
- Tack sheds are available on a first come, first served basis. When tack shed space is not available, sufficient area will be provided for each boarder to place a secured tack trunk or box.
- Turn-outs are available, but all horses must be supervised at all times during their turn-outs. Daily turn-out should be limited to 15-20 minutes per horse.
- The wash racks may be utilized on a space available basis.
- A parent or legal guardian must sign the Contract and Release Agreement if the potential border is a minor.
- Colts, stallions, unruly or destructive horses, and horses requiring unusual feeds or care, will not be accepted as boarders at the Arabian Horse Center.
Prospective boarders may find that they will have to be put on a waiting list for a campus stall. In this case, the Farm Manager can recommend several local stables.
