Horse Boarding Contract Template
This horse boarding agreement is entered into as of [Date] by and between [Sender.Company] “Stable” and [Client.FirstName][Client.LastName] “Client”.
In consideration of payment of monthly horse boarding fees, the Stable agrees to board the horse(s) listed in this contract on a month-to-month basis. Likewise, the Client agrees to make full payment of monthly horse boarding fees in accordance with the terms of this contract.

The following horses belonging to the Client are to be boarded with the Stable:
Horse Boarding Fees
The following fees shall be paid to the Stable by the Client for each horse boarded.
Examples of horse boarding fees include:
- Use of a stall
- Feeding and watering
- Scheduling veterinary and farrier services
- Exercise and training
The Client must provide proof of the following vaccinations prior to boarding their horse(s) with the Stable:
These vaccinations must be kept up to date by the Client as recommended by a licensed veterinarian, and copies of all paperwork must be submitted to the Stable. Your horse may need additional vaccinations, such as those for the West Nile virus and rabies, depending on where you live and how often you travel. All horses must also have proof of a negative Coggins test. This protects all the horses at the stable from spreading disease to one another.
While every effort will be made to provide proper care to all horses being boarded, the Stable shall not be held liable for any costs or loss associated with a horse’s sickness, theft, injury, or death. While the Stable’s facilities and employees are fully insured as required by law, this insurance policy does not cover clients’ horses. The Client agrees to bear complete and total liability for their horse’s continued health and well-being.
Additionally, the Client agrees to indemnify and hold the Stable harmless against any and all claims of loss or damage, without limitation.
Things arise that will be out of your control. It is important for your horse boarding client to list a person they trust with the emergency care of their horse. A family veterinarian knows the specific horse’s medical history. This segment of the terms and conditions adds another layer of protection for your horse-boarding stable.
Should any horses covered under this horse boarding contract require medical care, the Stable will make a reasonable effort to contact the Client via phone. Should the Client be unreachable, the Stable reserves the right to secure veterinary care for the horse(s) covered by this horse boarding agreement.
The Stable makes all attempts to contact your preferred veterinarian as listed in the contract for the care of your horse. However, if the preferred veterinarian is unavailable, the Stable reserves the right to use another veterinarian at their discretion. All costs associated with such care will be the sole responsibility of the Client without limitation.
Other emergencies may involve the barn as a whole, such as a weather-related incident or an outbreak of infectious disease. Our stable is prepared with:
- A three-day emergency supply of food and water
- First-aid kits in each horse stall
- Horse documentation with photos and descriptions
- Regular generator testing and a three-day supply of fuel
Agreement Term & Cancellation
This horse boarding contract shall continue on a month-to-month basis. The Client may cancel this agreement at any time by paying any unpaid horse boarding fees and removing their horse(s) from the Stable’s property.
If there are any disagreements with regard to the terms of the contract, they shall be overseen by the state of [Sender.Company.State]. Any recoveries made by either party are limited to the fees and expenses outlined in this contract.
