“My family has owned, operated and lived at Valinor Farm since 1982. We’ve always believed that an important aspect of enjoying the time you spend with your horse is the camaraderie and support you receive from your peers at the barn. That’s why we work hard to ensure that every boarder feels like a member of our extended family. Whether you prefer the intensity of the show ring or the tranquility of a trail ride, we’ll do our best to support you, help you reach your goals and make you feel at home.
With 30 horses to care for and over 45 acres to maintain (including a full cross country course), there’s never a shortage of work to go around. We also host dozens of shows and clinics every year, and travel to events throughout USEA Area 1, so it’s fair to say we keep plenty busy. That means we don’t have any extra time to spend opening and resealing buckets, tracking down lost scoops or cleaning up a bucket that accidentally spilled. But we know that eventing takes a lot out of our horses, so we want to make sure they have the nutritional support they need to keep going strong – enter SmartPaks.
The SmartPaks supplement feeding system makes it fast and easy to know that the right horse gets the right supplements in the right amounts, every time. They’re extremely convenient when we’re traveling to overnight shows, and they are delivered to the barn automatically, so there’s no risk of running out. Best of all, they make it just a little easier for us to take really great care of the horses entrusted to us, while still managing all the other aspects of running a (wonderfully) busy barn.”
