Boarding patrons may park their trailers at their stall unit, providing it doesn't interfere with access to other stalls/paddocks or block emergency vehicle access, or at other designated areas within the EQC free of charge.

New patrons or additional mounts will not be assigned a stall of any type until the mount is physically present at the Fort Novosel Riding Stables. That is, a horse will not be placed on the waiting list for permanent facilities until it clears quarantine. Horses not in a permanent stall will occupy one of the 24 transient stalls available on site. Active duty military patrons will not be required to occupy transient facilities for longer than 45 days.

All incoming boarders must provide documentation of a negative coggins test within the last 30 days and proof of immunizations administered by a licensed veterinarian as listed below:

    Equine Influenza: annually
    West Nile: twice annually
    Equine Eastern and Western Encephalomyelitis: annually

Horses will remain in a quarantine status until released by the veterinarian.
