Patchwork Farm offers full service rehabilitation services by referral.
All of our rehab stalls have yoke windows to let the horse feel less enclosed and enjoy the scenery and sunshine!
We understand that having a horse on stall rest or limited turnout and exercise can be tricky. We have a fully enclosed hand grazing area for our rehab horses. This enables both the staff or the owner to feel secure while allowing the horse to still enjoy some time outside of the stall. Our rehab stalls have dutch doors off the back that open directly into the enclosed grazing area for safety and convenience.

The Kraft horse treadmill is an important addition to the training and rehabilitation at Patchwork Farm. It offers individual adjustments for the needs and demands of both rider and horse. A custom training and therapy plan can easily be pre-programmed for the special needs of a horse. The treadmill can help in motion analysis for medical issues such as lameness and then the slow and careful program to getting the horse back to its peak fitness.
We offer several different pasture options from small, all-weather paddocks to large grass turnout depending on the needs of the horse.
