  • Horse Boarding in Tacoma

    I am looking for full board for 5 maybe 6 horses near Tacoma. Water 24/7 is a must. (i have had problems with this.) Clean water buckets would be nice (I have had problems with this too.) Daily turnout would be nice. An arena would be nice. I am done with trainers for the moment, so I don't care if there is a trainer on site. I have posted on Facebook, but didn't like the recommended places.

    There is very little in Tacoma proper. How far are you willing to go from Tacoma and which direction would you prefer to head?

      Puyallup, Enumclaw, Maple Valley would be ok. Near JBLM would be ok, but I have looked at some places there. They are too expensive or don't have enough stalls.

        Five or six horses makes it tough. Most of the well established places that offer full care and seem to be well thought of may have one or two stalls open at a time but almost never five - unless maybe you run across a place that is newly open or changing ownership/direction.

        I am going to throw out some places that come to mind. They come to mind because they have been around for a while. I do not have direct experience boarding at any of them so they may or may not be a fit but might be worth an internet look-up -

        Tacoma area: Highpoint Equestrian Center. C Bar Ranch. I think the Tacoma Unit offers some boarding but no turn-out, and it is really busy on week-ends throughout the year.

        Sumner/Puyallup/Orting area: The Little Barn that Could, Northwest Horse Park

        Auburn/Fife/Kent: The Red Horse Farm, TK Brooke stables, Tall Firs, E and K, Stoneridge

        Enumclaw: Polo Club, Double B, Cascade, Chateau Rodeo

        Maple Valley/Renton: Pony Tail Ranch, Lakeside

        Good luck!

            Couple more I thought of in Enumclaw: JR Stables (formerly CJs) on 400th and Thunder Rail
