Boarding & Barn Rules
HHF is now offering a limited amount of spots for PASTURE BOARD ONLY. Call 814-398-9369 to inquire about availability.
This is what a couple of our Boarders have to say about their experience here at HHF:
Our horse Figaro retired from the show circuit at an early age. He has been stabled at Hogback Hill Farm since August 2006. Vita regularly keeps us informed of Figaro’s well-being through e-mails and phone calls. She provides excellent care; he is looking the healthiest he’s ever been. We have visited the Farm four times and know that Vita routinely makes improvements to the property that greatly benefit the horses and riders. The rider in our family says that since she can’t look after Figaro herself, she’s glad that Vita is there for him!
— Sanghamitra, Horse Owner
Vita paid great attention to detail when deciding on my horse’s boarding accomodations. He was young, lacked socialization and was from an auction. After his quarantine period was over she considered his personality, his age, and his individual needs — then provided him with a clean and comfortable open stall next to a friendly horse and in an area of the barn where people frequently go by and give him attention. He also gets lots and lots of turnout time with an appropriate small herd.
