I have been a boarder at D Bar W for 5 years. D Bar W is a friendly facility. The barn staff is helpful. The stalls are well taken care of. The spacious indoor and outdoor riding arenas are well maintained. Turn out time is fine; pastures are large.

Pros: Horses are treated well Best of riding instruction available

My horse had to be put to sleep at the hands of this facility. It was the one of the most devastating days of my life and my 10 year old daughter. I owned this horse for about 8 years. She was like a member of the family at this point. My horse was let out in the pasture while the owner had dug a trench if front of the gate where the horses had to come back in from. The back fill from the trench was piled 2-3 feet high next to the trench leaving about a one and a half foot pathway for my horse to come back in at the end of the day. A child was left to open up the gate and just let my horse come in on her own in which she was either spooked by the trench or the back fill next to it which led her to fall into the trench and break her knee. It was not possible to repair. The next day after the trench was filled in .......the horses were personally hand walked in with a halter and lead rope. I am quite sure my horse would still be here today if she was given the same courtesy !!!

Pros: None

Cons: Very Poor Facility

I couldn't agree more. I have heard that the hay and grain are of terrible quality, and that the horses are not even fed in the mornings. I have driven by, and most of the horses seem to be very, very thin. And the horses are only turned out during the day. They do not offer night turnout there, so a lot of the horses are very faded as well. The paddocks seem like a muddy mess, and it does not look like there are fans on the stalls, but I have only driven by very slowly, so I could have missed them. It just looks like a nice facility, but I do not believe that the horses there are in the best shape. The only people I ever see working are either very, very old or very young. It does not seem as though anyone educated or physically fit works there. At least no one properly fitted for the job.

Pros: Nice facility

Cons: crappy turnout, crappy feed

Overall, DBarW has a nice facility. They do not utilize it to it's fullest potential. I have been a horse owner, instructor and trainer for the last fifteen years. I have what have proven to be average standards. The stalls were smallish and only picked daily by teenager boys. New bedding was provided only once per week. It looked like dirt on the floor, not shavings. There was herd turnout, probably thirty horses per pasture turned out by opening doors and shuttling them out in a free-for-all of sorts. (One of my horses was injured when he was chased into a gate-- required stitches up is entire leg.) There was a "barn manager" who was a woman who took care of the entire farm (nearly 70 horses). This was way too much work for one person and all she did was feed and turnout. No one was on the premises for most of the day to monitor the horses. Forget about calling you about an injury. One person can't check 70 horses for cuts, shoes, abnormal behavior. If you have any problems, don't call Dave. He doesn't care. That said, the indoor ring was gorgeous and they had nice wash and grooming stalls.
