General information and FAQ's
What is the GENERAL PHILOSOPHY of JAR?
Our philosophy is that the horse experience ought to be as accessible as possible to anyone with a love for horses, so we attempt to keep our boarding prices as reasonable as the budget will allow. As to working with horses, we support the natural horseman philosophy and believe very much that the horse-rider relationship involves active two-way communication. We have boarders who ride both Western and English, we have some who are progressing through the various levels of dressage, we have recreational trail riders and we have a few who are hunter-jumpers.
