  2. AGREEMENT: This agreement is for the service of boarding at 531 Hwy 35 Pontypool under the care of the Natural Horsemanship Association for the horse /pony listed in paragraph one (1).
  3. SERVICE PROVIDED: Boarding is for the daily maintenance and keep of the horse/pony kept at the farm. There are options for service which can be selected in the paragraph ‘costs’ #5. 
  4. DATES OF SERVICE: Services will continue until either party provides written notice to the other in this agreement. Changes to this agreement require 30 days’ notice in writing. Note if the boarder notifies on June 2 they will cease boarding on July 1st, they will still be billed for July 1st board because it does not comply with the 30 days notice. If a boarder’s horse is for sale, an alternate arrangement for notice may be arranged as the boarder may not know when the horse is going to sell.
  5. COSTS : The Inn Keepers Act is posted in the barn and all boarders must read and understand this act before signing this agreement. Payment will be made to the Natural Horsemanship Association via cheque, or online interac payment to nhassociation@gmail.com by the 1st of the calendar month. Overdue fees will be charged at an interest rate of 5%/week. Boarders can leave post dated cheques for board payment made payable to the Natural Horsemanship Association to ensure board fees are paid on time.

    Stall Use: Boarded horses may use stalls on an as needed basis and boarders are responsible to clean up after their horse, and care for their horse while using a stall. If the boarder stalls the horse more than 5 times in a month, the boarder will provide shavings for the stall. In the event of horse injury or sickness, PHH will cover the labour costs of maintaining a horse in a stall for up to a period 1 week if deemed necessary by a veterinary subject to staff availability. After such time the horse must return to outdoor board, or pay additional fees of $75/week to cover the labour, shavings, and square bale hay costs. In the event the owner is able to provide all of the care for the horse, they pay an additional $35/week for shavings and square bale hay.

    Additional Fees: The boarder agrees to clean up after their horse and be responsible for their horse’s actions. If a boarder (or boarder’s horse, person accompanying a boarder, etc) causes damage/ expense to the facility, the boarder is responsible for the repair/replacement/restoration costs. For example if a boarder chooses to leave their horse unattended on the cross ties and the horse breaks the cross ties, the boarder will be responsible to replace the cross ties. Or for example if the boarder is using the hot water wash stall and forgets to turn off the propane or disconnect the hoses in winter, the boarder is responsible for the propane tank refill cost, and the cost to replace/repair the damaged system from freezing. Any time a boarder is given a bill for repair/ replacement/ restoration costs a $15 administration fee will be added to the cost and late payment interest rates will apply at 10% per month.

     

    Boarding includes a locker for items to be stored onsite, 24/7 access to salt/minerals/water, daily hay, and being brought in once per day for grain. During the grain feeding supplements can be given, blankets changes, or other health care as needed can be provided. If the horse requires something time consuming or complex (such as wound dressing changes) additional charges may apply. Please choose from the following boarding packages and options:
