Setting the Standard in Horse Retirement

Your Retired Horse deserves the same high quality infrastructure as that found on leading breeding and performance farms. Retirement Is the same standard of excellence your horse was accustomed to during their performance careers, the difference is your horse is now living the life of a retired horse in a herd situation where 12-16 hours a day spent consuming forage, previously in the form of hay in their stall, is now spent grazing, not unlike on a broodmare farm. 
Unlike a broodmare farm, a small retirement farms provides Your Retired Horse with individualized care .

Reserve Your Horse's Retirement Today

Peace of Mind is Priceless.

At Orchard Equine Retirement we have been providing Full Care Horse Retirement since 1988. We know that retiring horses is so much more than turning a horse out in a pasture.

Much more.  We understand and respect the special relationship owners have with their horses. We understand how difficult it is to separate from your partner and friend.

We've been there. Lying awake at night wondering if they are being fed properly. If they are standing out in the weather, or are they comfortable inside their box stall or run in shed with their buddies.

It is that very relationship with a horse named Prince and the failed search for a horse retirement farm where he could safely retire, that inspires us to this day.

We look forward to discussing the retirement you want for your horse. Please include your horse's name in your message!

Our Rates 

We offer flat rate and itemized billing. Clients choose which method best suits their horse's needs and their preferences. Call or send a message to reserve your horse's retirement at the farm that continues to set the standard in horse retirement.
