Up Front Horses is a facility based on 60+ acres located in Central Minnesota northeast of St. Cloud (between Gilman and Rice). Although providing lessons to horseless riders is our priority, we also offer training and boarding to people with outside horses on a limited basis. We believe we offer more one-to-one service than most stables.
Our current facilities include 10-stall and 12-stall heated barns that are attached to a 72' x 144' indoor arena, four covered runs with heated waterers, and an outdoor arena. We are 1/2 mile off a paved road with miles of dirt roads available for riding and we are developing trails on the 30 acres of our property that are covered with oak and maple trees.
We specialize in starting horses, helping owners work with their horses, and resolving problems. We are not a show facility but can refer interested parties to specialized trainers in the area.
We provide box stalls, grain, hay, daily turnout, training for the horse, and lessons for the owner for $225 (for board) and $175 (for training) for a total of $400 per month. This is for approximately 8 training sessions per month and daily handling.
Because space is limited, we offer training on a case-by-case basis. We reserve the right to refuse any horse if we feel that the safety of our employees or our customers would be compromised in any way. Please contact us for specifics and availablity of space.
We welcome you to visit our farm, tour our facilities, ask any questions that you have, and enjoy the atmosphere that we have created.
