Osborne International Boarding
Osborne International Boarding is one of the premier boarding locations in the Atlanta area. Located on 25 beautiful rolling acres, with world-class footing, international-quality training, and outstanding quality care of the horses, Osborne Boarding is a worry-free, low-drama place to keep your horse while training to achieve your dreams.
Extreme attention is paid to the horses’ well-being, health, and happiness, and you can rest easy when you board here knowing that the smallest changes in behavior or mood are being noticed and monitored. We believe that if the horse isn’t happy and comfortable, we can’t expect them to learn new skills and become competitive.
Horses’ feeding regimens are 100% individualized to each horse. Owners can have 24 hour hay provided, or several feedings a day with a wide option of types of hay. We stock a large variety of grain and pellet brands, all included in board price, and supplements and/or medicine designed for each horse’s needs are also fed by the staff. Boarders also have access to professional feeding consultations through our sponsor, Ashley Wagner at Equinutrix. We greatly value her contribution to our team and she is a great asset who recommends what is best for your horse, whether or not its her product. She has a PHD in Equine Nutrition and engages in ongoing education to make sure she’s the best in the business. She regularly visits Osborne Boarding and consults with owners of horses at our barn, and many owners trailer in to have access to her expertise. Together, we feed and care for our horses like the top athletes they are.
Health and Maintenance
Horses are carefully monitored for signs of soreness or ill health, and regularly get their gaits examined for lameness. Our highly knowledgeable staff puts hands-on each horse multiple times a day, including picking out their feet and inspecting legs, so cuts and scrapes are found and treated right away. Staff put blankets and leg protection on horses as needed, whether its fly sheets in the summer or coolers and blankets in the winter.
Owners have access to some of the best equine professionals in the business, from farriers to vets to chiropractors. All horses have current Coggins, and are up to date on vaccines and deworming.
Horses get individual turnout in large, grassy pastures that are rotated and seeded twice yearly to prevent overgrazing or muddy conditions. Horses are carefully placed in pastures that fit their personalities best, to lower the chances of cuts or injuries while out of the stall. All pastures are fenced with high quality, four-board, black wooden fences, with an electric wire running over the top board to ensure that the horses don’t test the fence. All pasture fences are inspected for safety and are kept in good condition at all times. The safety of your horse while at Osborne International Boarding is our highest priority.
