Ute Creek Equine is located 45 minutes north of Taos in Amalia, New Mexico,  just over the Colorado state line. We offer three boarding packages that allow your horse to be out on pasture for 12-24 hours per day. Depending on which package you choose for your horse, you can customize it to fit your horses needs. We also offer a graduated program to adapt horses to full pasture board. Horse transportation to the ranch is available with cost based on mileage.

Pasture Board: $450/month
– 24-hour turn-out, 35 acre pastures with other horses
– Free choice grass hay
– Grain fed twice a day
– Clean water and supervision
– Worming and vaccinations in spring and/or fall*
– Loafing sheds cleaned 3 times per week
– Trimming every 4-8 weeks as needed*

Please note that it takes a special horse to be able to live out in the pasture full time. It may be difficult for your horse to initially adapt, especially if they have always been stalled. We offer two “stall boarding” packages (below) which allow your horse maximum pasture-time. Ask about our graduated program to adapt stall horses to pasture board.

Premium Paddock Board: $550/month

With this premium package, we bring the horses in at night and let them out to pasture in the morning. We check them over, monitor their hay, feed and water consumption.

This is our most customized package, and gives your horse the attention they need. You can choose to give your horse as much or as little pasture time as you want. They come in at night, barn doors closed during inclement weather. This is ideal for any horse that needs closer attention or daily treatment. Owner responsible for providing blankets and sheets.

Our Short-term Vacation Board is completely customizable based on your horse’s specific needs.


All of our packages require a security deposit of 1 month’s board prior to acceptance of any horse into the barn. This security deposit assures a guarantee for the faithful performances of all the terms of the boarder’s agreement. Ute Creek Equine agrees to refund this deposit to the boarder after vacating the premises or at the expiration of the boarder’s agreement providing that all terms of the boarder’s agreement have been complied with, less any deductions authorized in advance.

Your first month’s payment is due upon arrival. The monthly board is due on the first of each month. Short-term board is payable in advance. A late fee of $25.00 will be charged if payment is later than 7 days.

Additionally, we suggest liability/injury/death insurance to board. Your homeowner’s policy may cover you. You can add your horse for a nominal fee. An end-of-life deposit of $500 is required (not applicable for short-term board) for retired horses.

* Feed, supplements and medications must be delivered in advance or pre-paid, as appropriate. Blankets, sheets and masks must be provided by owner. Farrier, worming and vaccination costs are in addition to board.
