 Price to agist spelling horses in turn out paddocks

We also have 15 acres of large paddocks out the back, suitable for young stock under 3 years old or broodmares. Alternatively you may be planning to go on holiday and would like to rest easy knowing your horse is being looked after in a safe environment by a professional; or you may be unable to care for your horse personally due to sickness or just needing a break. Either way your horse will enjoy the company of some of our school horses and retirees. They’ll be rugged when necessary, checked and fed twice a day. There are no access to the facilities included in this package.

Feed Fee

**All prices listed above do not include our “Feed Fee”. Avoca Park uses our Feed Analysis Calculator to calculate the exact cost of feeding each horse on site. We do not charge any more than our cost price.

Our cost of feed is variable depending on the type of horse, because we agist and train all types of horses, at all stages of fitness. This includes different breeds from riding ponies at competition fitness to recently agisting an underweight Percheron, rescued from a drought effected area. When a horse comes onto our property, we will provide full care and maintain all aspects of feeding. Leanne Williams is very fortunate she is able to attend Carol Layton’s Nutrition Workshop, hosted annually at Avoca Park, so she is an excellent judge of the best feed for your horse.

The average horse at Avoca Park costs $49 to feed each week on our regular feed. The price is variable depending on feed prices and your horse’s individual needs. You are welcome to view a copy of our feed analysis document at any time while your horse is at Avoca Park to explain our cost of “Feed Fee”.
