We offer a range of boarding options from basic board to full care thus allowing each owner to customize his or her boarding plan to fit individual needs and schedules. Feeding only high quality locally grown Costal Bermuda hay and top quality Nutrena SafeChoice feed, we make certain that all horses are healthy and in good body condition. On site owners are able to offer full time care and personal attention to all of our horses. Green Savannah Stables, Inc. is a family oriented barn. Our riders are all ages from children to adults. Many riders focus on trail riding while some enjoy dressage training and showing. Green Savannah is not a high pressure show barn. Our focus is on providing a positive atmosphere for horse owners to enjoy their horses and their time with other horsie friends.
All board packages include Nutrena SafeChoice feed and quality Coastal Bermuda hay fed twice daily. Horses are also provided fresh water several times daily. We offer additional services such as stall cleaning and trimming/deworming services.
Please browse our facilities tab and our FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) tab for more information on the accommodations we offer to you and your horse.
We do offer full care boarding on a very limited basis for those who need a full care option. Contact us for more information.

*Blanketing Information: Most horses do not need to be blanketed at all in the winter here at Green Savannah due to our mild SC winters and their access to a stall to keep them dry and out of the wind. We find most of our horses to be quite comfortable all winter long with no blankets. Therefore, we do not offer blanketing services at this time.
*Fans: Fans are set on timers to run for 12 hours a day, 9am to 9pm. This provides the horses with a nice breeze during the heat of the day. Fans and cords must be out of reach of the horses.
*A Note about our Paddocks: If you select a paddock stall or a stall with an attached turnout run, it must be kept free of manure and shavings from the stall. If you are cleaning your own stall, this is your responsibility. If you select our stall cleaning option, we will do this for you. If you do not take care of this on a regular basis, we will ask you to step up to our stall cleaning package so that it can be consistently done.
A Note about our Pastures and Turnout System: We do not offer pasture only board. All of our horses have a stall to allow them to stay out of the elements during poor weather. We have several pastures that we use for turnout. All turnout is limited to 2 hours per horse per day. This allows horses to get out, run, stretch, kick, play, and socialize and then return to their stalls and paddocks so that another horse may be turned out to enjoy the pasture. Our 2 hour rotational system works well for our barn and our horses. We do not turnout in large groups to limit the possibility of injury to your horse. That is why our turnout time must stay limited to allow regular rotation. We do not rely on our pastures to provide grass as part of the horse's daily ration. We feed twice daily. Any grass provided on the pasture is intended to allow the horse to browse and munch while enjoying some time out each day. For those who feel their horse needs more time out or for those who cannot visit the barn regularly to turn their horse out, we offer regular board with attached runs as a boarding option for an increased price. Availability is limited.
