OUR HORSE FARM &

BOARDING / TRAINING FACILITY

Boarding can be a difficult choice, we make it simple.  At Glover's Equestrian Center we understand that you love your horse like a caring parent loves their child.  Please allow our family to pamper and take care of your horse like you would want them to be.  When choosing a horse boarding facility, there are many important things to consider and compare.   When you add up the cost vs. benefits and value, the experience, professional care, and all of the extras with Glover's Equestrian Center, there is no comparison.  We believe that your choice will be hands down, 2nd to none, simply Glover's Equestrian Center:  

        Our Prices- Glover's Equestrian Center prices are very reasonable and competitive. There are several packages to choose from.  It is best to call us directly at (352) 848-0342 and discuss your needs.  You may only want to board your horse for the year or the season.  or you may want to include our horse boarding & training package  with personalized  or group lessons.  Whatever you can imagine, we can accommodate your needs. 

 

                                                              "Quality Never Cost, As  Much As It Saves!"

Stalls on the inside of the barn isle. Owners are welcome to individualize.   View of entire barn - stalls and isle for working when bad weather

        Horse Stalls- Horses need a clean healthy environment with enough of room to move, but snug enough to feel secure & happy.  All of Glover's Equestrian Center stalls are a spacious 12'x12' covered enclosures or 12'x15' for Stallions.  Each stall is thoroughly cleaned every day and the bedding is maintained with fresh pine shavings  as needed.

        Automatic Water Feeder-  A horse may salivate up 10 gallons of water or more everyday!  With this in mind, it is essential to maintain an abundant water supply for your horse at all times.  To ensure that your horse has plenty of fresh clean water at all times, Glover 's Equestrian Center  has installed a state of the art,  "automatic water trough" (AWT) system to every stall and to all of our pastures.  This system maintains a constant "full" water level automatically.

Our Shaded 90' arena and trail obstacle course        Our Arena (jumps are out for dragging)                Our Shaded 65' Round pen

        Riding Areas - Glover's Equestrian Center has A 65' Round pen for lunging and keeping horses close while working them. A 90' Round arena that is great in the summer as it is under beautiful Old Oak Trees for shade. A 230' x 130' riding arena with footing that is kept up for great working no matter what discipline. And for those rainy days, check out the picture above of the 125'x25' barn isle that you can work in. Plus, ALL are lighted, so feel free to come out after dark.

        

Our Covered Wash Racks and our outside Wash Rack that double for tie/tack areas

 

        

Our Tie/tack areas that are all under roof and close by to the air conditioned tack rooms we have available for boarders

        Wash Racks and Tacking areas - At Glover's Equestrian Center we know waiting to tack, untack or even bathe your horse can be a downside to barns. But we have may areas set up for your convenience. Close to the tack rooms or ready for a bath after untacking.

        Security- Glover's Equestrian Center is safe and secure at all times.  Mr. and Mrs. Glover live in their home here on the premises part time. Deborah Glover is onsite each day and does nightly checks when Bob and Rita are getting away. There is always someone present on the property looking after things.  The pastures are fenced with an electric fence system,  and the feed, medicines, and equipment can be kept under lock and key, as necessary. 

        Horse Handlers-  All Glover's Equestrian Center horse handlers are experienced professional "horse people".  Usually this is Mr. & Mrs. Bob and Rita Glover, & Ms. Deborah Glover.  They have been working with horses all of their lives.

        Veterinarians-  Glover's Equestrian Center has two (2) Professional Licensed Veterinarians (D.V.M.), a "barn veterinarian" on call 24/7; and a Veterinarian/Homeopathic (D.V.M.).

        Farriers - Glover's Equestrian Center has a well established and experienced Professional Farrier on call, who has been working with us for many, many years. But you are, of course, allowed to have your farrier come here to work on your horse.

        Hay and Feed-  At Glover's Equestrian Center  we use a high quality hay and feed program that we have had remarkable success with for many years.  All of our "Hay" is specifically hand picked and chosen for a horses' diet (for example: it must never have been rained on, rolled wet, the hay length must be grown greater than 8 inches).  The point is, we have grown our own Horse Hay and know what it takes and what to look for.  Our "hay" at Glover's Equestrian Center is a nutritional horse specific Tifton 44, World Class Bermuda and Alfalfa.  In addition, we include, a nutritionally balanced feed that is specifically customized for your own horse's dietarian needs;  adding fats, vitamins, and minerals et al as needed.

        Rehabilitation and Physical Therapy-  At Glover's Equestrian Center we are certified to evaluate your horse in terms of physical assessments and can offer Veterinarian Orthopedic Manipulations (VOM) Adjustments (not the same as those of human chiropractic procedures, but similar and only for animals).  We use a variety of "hands on" and mechanical-physical manipulations to adjust your horse's musculature and skeletal system.  This may include laser and ultra sonic therapies as well.  We have successfully used these procedures for show horses, race horses, and just about ever discipline imaginable for horses.

        Amenities - Glover's Equestrian Center has so many others that we just could go on and on!!!!!!!!

Come see the farm, we love to show it off!

 

Our training is something of a journey

 We start horses with patience, as each one has a different personality and ability. Working in sync with an individual horse and rider to bring out the best with the most ease and comfortable results. Deborah Glover, our nationally and internationally recognized trainer, has been training for years and still works on one of her disciplines - her dressage with her  instructor, Bill Woods. She is diverse in her working knowledge of horses, their movements, capabilities and has experience with many different disciplines. Yet seems to have a knack for finding the right instruction for the rider. And they are all different, so there is no cookie cutter training here. Each individual works and learns on their own schedule, she allows that and even caters to it.

Horses are so willing to do what we ask, if only we could explain it in terms that they can understand. Forced stress puts the horse on the defensive and slows down the maturity and development of the horses, so we work soft but firm. We believe that going slow and explaining everything to both horse and rider patiently over and over again until it is both natural and comfortable to them is the best way.

We have been doing this with such great results that we have had years of a winning and fun show history, along with the personal pride of seeing so many of our clients out on the trail and winning on the rail. The horse and rider are working together with an understanding of what each is asking and requiring.

Come look around and ask around. We have a reputation that shows the time and effort that we have put into each and every relationship. Glover's Stables has been known for quality horses that we breed, raise, train and sell for over 12 years now. We are not a big operation. We are a family that loves horses and are honored that others want our help in establishing the same relationship with their horse.
