About Maple Valley Stables
Maple Valley Stables, founded in 2006, has been a family-owned and operated business for over eighty years. We transitioned from a dairy facility to an equine facility and have taken the family farm into the 21st century. Our main focus is the health and safety of the horses boarded here at our mixed-discipline facility. We cater to dressage and hunter/jumper disciplines as well as pleasure and trail riders on our 144 acres in beautiful northern Vermont. SmartPak offers a variety of supplements and products to fit each horse’s individual needs. We are confident in the SmartPak products as well as the experienced, knowledgeable employees that assist us in making the best choices for our horses.
Our horses compete at local VHJA, CDSS, Vermont Dressage Days, GMHA, NEECS, and the SPHONJ National Horse Show, as well as Equine Affaire. With 30 horses on the property, we rely on SmartPaks to keep our feeding program organized and to help keep the horses going at their absolute best. SmartPaks have streamlined the feeding process, and they save us time and money. Between managing lesson schedules, hosting clinics, and traveling for competitions, Maple Valley Stables is a very busy place! Using SmartPaks for our horses’ supplements makes our feeding program the most efficient it can be by getting pre-measured, fresh doses of supplements that are personally designed for each horse’s needs. For our boarders traveling to horse shows, we always know that their horses are getting exactly what they need.
We have seen great results with many of the SmartPak products, including SmartFlex Senior Pellets for T.C. who earned Grand Champion in training level dressage and Senior Pleasure horse and Reserve Champion in hunters and games at the 2012 Standardbred National Horse Show. T.C. is 18 years young. T.C. also represented the Standardbred breed at this year’s Equine Affaire held in Springfield, MA.
We also have a young horse who was having a hard time maintaining his weight, was grumpy, and had loose stool. SmartDigest Ultra has turned him into a different horse.SmartOmega 3 doesn’t just give my horse Sky a stunning coat, it makes me feel that I am providing the best for his health and well being.
One of the best things about SmartPak is the customer service. I have never had a company that truly cared about each individual client and horse the way that SmartPak does. I love being able to call them, have an educated discussion about a horse’s needs, and have someone to work with each horse and owner. I especially like the personalized service when a new product comes out and they take the time to explain new items and promotions that I can pass on to my boarders. With the Barn Saver Shipping program, our shipments are fast and come right to the barn door.
Our full-time barn manager, Caitlin Kincaid, is in charge of the daily feedings. She is very organized and is so happy with the simplicity of the SmartPaks. Currently we have 16 horses and counting on SmartPaks and are encouraging other boarders to order them.
We appreciate the quality of SmartPak’s tack and equipment. When we are looking for stable equipment, horse supplies and equipment or riding attire, we feel confident that the brands they provide will be of the highest quality. If there is ever a problem, they have been more than accommodating. Our barn is full of SmartPak items.
We are proud to have partnered with SmartPak for all of our horses’ needs.
