We have 3 unique horse barns within 50 steps of each other. There are 4 big box stalls in each barn and every stall has an attached private paddock. Owners do not need to fear their horse being kicked, bitten, or bullied. Most horses quickly learn their hay and feed is theirs alone to eat in peace and at their own pace. In addition to trails around our 160 acre farm, there is fenced acreage for riding. Inside the riding area is a standard size dressage arena with agricultural sand (not dusty) and a 75-foot round pen with agricultural sand. New to Jubilee Stables is our large indoor riding arena and an additional 6-stall barn with an indoor wash rack and bathroom. Inside the West Barn is a boarder’s lounge that is heated and cooled and we provide a Keurig Coffee Maker (tea, coffee, hot cider, or hot chocolate). Of course, each barn has its own locked tack room and we have space for large tack boxes. There is also an outdoor wash rack with a 180 degree washing wand hose for bathing horses. Helmets must be worn by all boarders and riders at Jubilee Stables. Every ride, every time!
Stall Boarding Stalls range in size from 12X14 to 16X20. Each stall has heated water, mats and an exit door to the paddock. Horses love their freedom to go from their stall to their paddock as they choose. We maintain horse-safe fencing with electric rope braid as the top-line.
Pasture Boarding Pasture board is available in our 2 acre pastures with run-in sheds. Pasture board includes heated waterers, grass year-round depending on the rainfall, safe fencing with strong gates, and hay available in a round bale feeder or square bales fed twice daily if needed.

Absentee Owners and Retired Horse Care We specialize in retired horse care. We know owners want to provide their horse with best facilities and yet be easy on the pocket book. For the absentee owner, we care for your horse as you would. We also maintain communication with you regarding your horse. We dispense owner-provided dry supplements with no charge. Liquid supplements require special handling and we will feed those with an appropriate monthly fee. Medications are also an additional cost if administered separately from feed. Caring, cautious handling of horses is high priority and we live on site. Safety and security of horses and equipment is insured with our on-site camera surveillance system.
Custom Horse Care We know one size does not fit all horses. That is why we give special attention to the needs of each horse in our care.
While we have regular farrier and veterinary services, boarders are more than welcome to use a different farrier or veterinarian of their choosing.
Farrier Service is provided by Ryan Wilkins. Ryan graduated from the Indiana State Horseshoeing Academy and went on to teach at ISHA for one year. Ryan has a solid foundation of shoeing horses for a variety of disciplines, as well as specialized/corrective shoeing. Ryan has worked with many veterinarians, including Dr. John Hunt with whom he still works on special needs, corrective shoeing cases, and surgical cases. Ryan is always professional, keeps his schedule, and runs on time. He is also flexible and will work in an emergency shoe repair for your horse if needed.
Veterinary Service is most often provided by the Community Veterinary Practice Service from Purdue University. We schedule annual barn visits in the spring and fall.
Feeds and Feeding
We manage and personally administer all feeds. Our basic grain is Safe Choice by Nutrena or Top Line 32, a ration balancer by Kent Feeds. We will buy other feed brands if deemed necessary by the owner. We purchase and provide all feeds. The added difference in price over the cost of a bag of Safe Choice is paid by the horse owner. Every horse is fed grain 2 times daily. The amount of grain is determined for each horse by their weight and the amount of exercise they are given by their owner. We feed properly cured grass hay and grass/alfalfa mixed hay. Round bales are provided for most horses and are in safe horse bale feeders or inside hay huts. Square bales are always available and are stored inside each barn.
