Every horse in our care, regardless of their program, is seen daily. Owners and staff trained to recognize and address concerns requiring immediate attention are on the ranch 24/7.
All horses residing at LAR will be put on the Ranch’s HEALTH CARE PROGRAM. This is for the safety of all.
Horses are fed twice daily according to their needs to maintain optimal condition for the requirements of their individual program. Bedded stalls and unbedded paddocks are cleaned daily. Blanketing and turnout as required by the individual is included in stall and paddock board.
Call us to arrange a visit to determine what will be the best plan for your horse. Call Dean 530-333-1097
“Their treatment and care of the horse and rider are unsurpassed, you have the best in them. We are comfortable to leave our horses here even though they are three hours away from our home…we know the Lacey’s will meet all the horses’ needs.”
Tony Moio and Laura Koenig
Our retired horses deserve the best and we respect the effort they have expended for us. LAR’s retirement plan is boarding with extra care for the old folks. It takes a bit longer to walk out to the pasture. Food may need to be handled differently. Medications to be given. We spend more time checking them out everyday. We consider being your horse’s retirement home to be an honor and a responsibility. We will be there for them and will help make their golden years comfortable and delightful.
Call us and we’ll help you plan for your horse’s retirement. Call Dean 530-333-1097
“The only place we would consider…knew she would receive the best care possible…empathetic to owners…”

When our horses are injured or ill, after the veterinarian is finished with the immediate need, the second stage is rehabilitation. The orders can be over whelming, time consuming and a schedule challenging to meet with your other obligations. Also there is the worry you may miss something a more experienced eye would see. We are here 24/7 to look after your horse. Whether it is wound care requiring dressing changes, wrapping legs and hand walking, or multiple mini meals all day long, we have you covered. Working with you, your vet and farrier, we individualize a plan to help your horse to regain optimum health.
Give us a call and let’s see how we can help you through this difficult time. Call Dean 530-333-1097
Transportation can be arranged.
