A Full-Service Boarding Stable

Under new management since October, 2012!

Woodside Station Boarding Stables is a family owned and operated 79 acre farm nestled in Lykens Valley about 3 miles East of Millersburg and 30 miles North of Harrisburg. The main barn is a former dairy barn which was remodeled in the early 1990’s to operate as a horse boarding facility. The main barn can accommodate 26 full-sized horses and 5 miniature horses. There is a small indoor training area and a full-sized outdoor arena, which is large enough to accommodate shows, exhibitions, and rodeos. There are several outbuildings, one of which is set up to provide pasture board for an additional 4 to 6 horses. One of several attractions to the boarding stables are the mountain trails at the nearby Ned Smith Center for Nature and Art, which is open to the public for trail riding and hiking.

We offer daily turn-out, twice-daily feeding, fresh water, excellent hay, box stalls with rubber mats and daily stall cleaning, and individualized attention to your horse. If you prefer, we can coordinate your horse’s vet, farrier, and dental appointments, and feed the supplements that you provide. Whether you visit your horse every day or only occasionally, we care for the horses as if they were our own, and tend them with love and commitment.
