The Boarder's Area attaches to The Lounge, which is climate controlled and provides laundry and bathroom facilities.

We have a wonderful 100 ft x 200 ft all weather outdoor arena, with terrific footing that holds up brilliantly even after a heavy rain. It is fenced for your security, and is built to the standards of the United States Dressage Federation. Team CEO owns two full sets of Show Jumping fences, one being custom built and one from Jumps 4 Joy.

We are blessed to be located just a couple of miled from both Rood & Riddle and Hagyard Equine Institute, both world-class equine hospitals for the absolute best care of your best friend. Our farrier is the fabulous John Norris to drive in from out-of-state each week to take the absolute best care of our horses, custom designing a plan to suit each individual. He has shod for us for fifteen years, and we are absolutely thrilled at his work, his patience, and his excellence in the sporthorse world.
The care on the farm is done by Working Students, to assure that the horses are taken care of by attentive, educated individuals who are highly familiar with horses.

Boarding at Team CEO Eventing is for riders who seek to become not just clients, but part of the family. We love each and every horse that we care for. Our barn is a drama free zone where our boarders are family, and we look forward to their arrivals each and every day! We have a Head Trainer, Barn Manager, Working Students, and Stall Cleaners all on staff to serve your needs. Full care board at Team CEO includes AM and PM hay and grain, daily turnout (except in inclement weather), daily stall cleaning, feeding of supplements, trailer parking, and blanket changes.
--We work hard to maintain the fields and riings. With an agronomist living on the farm for three years overseeing its development, we were able to plan for the best fertilization and seeding possible for your horse. We drag both arenas with regularity, and the barns are swept daily. Water buckets are scrubbed once per week.
--Your horse is handled by horsemen, who knoow him well and know to watch for temperature changes, lost shoes, injuries, loss of appetite, or changes in behavior. Each boarder's contact information is laminated on each stall with your veterinary contact wishes, so you will be contacted immediately if any special attention is needed.
---Horsemanship and safety are a main prioriity in our lives. With a staff that lives on the farm 24-7, right in the barn, we have the added security of having them available at all hours, and able to easily hear if any commotion may be occuring in the Boarder Barn. The staff are all horse people, active eventers who we have had the joy of selecting just a few from hundreds of applications from across the country and the world. All horses on the farm stay current on our vaccination and worming protocols, to insure that the horses have the best health care possible. In addition, we are very lucky to be only 3 miles from Hagyards Equine Hospital and 5 miles from Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital, two of the leading clinics in the country.
--One lesson per week is required by all of our boarders. If you are interested in boarding, please contact Megan Moore at firstname.lastname@example.org
