Please call (360) 794-9255 or email to inquire about boarding at Cedarbrook Farms.

Boarding at Cedarbrook Farms is unique! We are not your typical boarding barn; we specialize in senior boarding, horse care and retirement board, high needs horses, rehabilitation cases, and boarders seeking holistic horse keeping.

We are a community of like-minded horse owners who enjoy spending time with their horses (in solitary nature walks or in the arenea) at a peaceful and nourishing farm. We are careful in our boarder selection process.

Our boarders come here because they seek consistent, well managed, loving, and professional level care for their horses. They appreciate Dr. Hannah and Dr. Justine continually observe boarded horses and assess horse health and wellbeing regularly. This oversight allows early identification of any potential problems providing you with complete peace of mind whether you are able to be here or not.

Boarders and their families enjoy the park like setting of the farm, the wooded trails and community garden. Our farm offers community oriented activities for those who are interested. We strive to provide a safe and positive environment to meet your horse needs including custom nutritional plans with veterinary oversight and good communication.

Our horse boarding farm is set up with a holistic approach in mind for your horse's best interest in order to meet their emotional and physical needs 24x7.

We utilize herd turnout (when appropriate) and horses are housed year round in matted loafing sheds with large attached mud free paddocks in order to avoid having horses stalled or confined. We have hospital stalls available in the barn through Cedarbrook Veterinary Care's rehabilitation program for horses needing short term stall rest.

Seasonal pasture or track paddock turnout keeps your horse turned out as much as possible and still avoid mud and maintain healthy pastures. The track systems allow horses to move freely around the perimeter of their pastures and simulates pasture turnout while the pasture is being rested. The track paddock system is also ideal for horses that have dietary restrictions which prohibit or limit pasture access (insulin resistance, laminitis, cushing's disease, obesity, EPSM, etc) as they allow turnout without the access to pasture grass.

We utilize slow feeder haynets and nibblenets to simulate 24hr access to feed and natural grazing while limiting the rate of consumption depending on your horses' needs.

The Farm has both indoor and outdoor shared riding spaces for you and your horse including a 70x130' covered riding arena, level pastures, round pen, and a 40 acre trail system.

We welcome outside trainers to come for lessons and clinics and outside horses are allowed to haul in for a fee.

Students consulting with Dr. Hannah

Veterinary Students

We welcome veterinary students interested in equine medicine to perform formal or informal internship/preceptorships with Cedarbrook Veterinary Care and Cedarbrook Farms.

This program allows you to observe a variety of patients and assist with and daily care. Veterinary students are quickly put to work assisting us in procedures such as dental floats, lameness exams, injections, etc. and are able to gain hands on experience doing procedures through our rescue rehabilitation program depending on our caseload.

As our student, you will so worthwhile work and become an important part of our team during your stay. You will also gain a valuable introduction into modalities of acupuncture and chiropractic as Cedarbrook Veterinary Care has a holistic approach to veterinary medicine.

In veterinary school, humane hands-on learning experiences for students are often lacking. Students in many programs are expected to practice surgery on healthy animals that were then euthanized at the end of the lab or the course ('Terminal Surgeries').

Dr. Hannah was unwilling to participate in this kind of education and sought out an 'alternative tract' or other way to gain hands-on learning for live animal surgeries.

Dr. Hannah found a win-win situation by pairing veterinary and vet tech students in need of practice with rescue horses in need of veterinary care. Under close supervision of professional veterinarians this win-win situation benefits everyone.

"I found that equine experience was much more difficult to come by versus small animal experiences, and since horses have always been my focus, this was what I needed to do in order to give back," said Dr. Hannah. "While it took a lot of leg work and time to organize these learning experiences, the efforts are well worth it."

Research shows vet students who opt out of terminal surgeries graduate from school with a higher level of compassion for their patients. This compassion is what motivates vets to do a good job with every individual case in their practice - and for Dr. Hannah and Dr. Justine it is one of the most important components to being a good veterinarian.

Student Testimonial

"Thank you and your staff for the warm welcome during my visit. I had very good quality educational time and I really enjoyed every minute of that. The hands-on experience in respect to equine medicine with you was outstanding. Surely this time has improved my skills and helped me gain valuable experience; I feel more confidence to pass the equine part of CPE exam.

Once again, thank you so much for your cooperation and understanding."

Student Testimonial

Right off the bat you could tell that Dr. Hannah was a teacher at heart, and she really wants you to be your best and succeed. I enjoy her company very much, and her calm disposition is very helpful, especially when you're asking her how you can improve as an employee. It's inspiring to see how the animals respond to her. It's very encouraging to know you don't have to be up tight to handle an animal no matter the size. I personally would work with Dr. Hannah any chance I get.

Jessica L. - PIMA Vet Tech Graduate

If you are considering a career in the equine veterinary field, are experienced working with horses, and are over 13 years of age we have opportunities for you as well!

After a brief meet and greet appointment with us to make sure we are a good match, we can set up a job shadowing ride along time for you to spend a day riding along with Dr. Hannah or Dr. Justine to see first-hand what the day of an equine veterinarian looks like.

The day starts at 7:00 a.m. helping with caretaker duties and learning about horse husbandry, veterinary appointments generally begin around 9:00 a.m. After you have completed a ride along, if you are interested in becoming a working student, you can interview to become a working student. Working students commit to at least one day per month and gain experience in horse husbandry, daily care, farm maintenance, truck cleaning/stocking, and veterinary assisting.

Interested in the field of Equine Facilitated Mental Health and Learning? Please contact us to discuss how you can become involved with our program.

Interested in horse training/handling or managing your own equestrian facility some day? Working students interested in farm management, horse husbandry, horse handling, or the Cedarbrook Farms program are teamed up with caretaking staff and stay onsite to observe, as well as gain first-hand experience. We can tailor the working student program to your area of interest.

Student Testimonial

As a horse lover who is interested in pursuing a career in veterinary medicine, Dr. Hannah gave me the opportunity to shadow her on several occasions. I have been able to observe and assist with dental floats, acupuncture, blood draws and immunizations. I think it is amazing that she takes her time to teach people who want to learn more and allow them to help. I believe this is an amazing opportunity for anyone who wants to pursue a career in veterinary medicine.

Tristan K., age 14

As a student who enjoyed biology and anatomy courses, and was aware of my passion for caring for animals, I already knew early on in my high school career that I wanted to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. However, when I started shadowing Dr. Hannah's appointments and helping her out in my junior year of high school, I grew even more fascinated by the demands as well as the rewards of the profession, and my goals to attend veterinary school were strengthened. During my days with Dr. Hannah, whether these were days receiving patients at the Cedarbrook Farm or driving from city to city visiting equine during farm calls, I was able to assist her with tasks ranging from ones as simple as cleaning tools for dental floats, to eventually more complex ones as giving intramuscular injections to horses as well as drawing blood. On some days, I was even able to observe Dr. Hannah during her acupuncture and chiropractic appointments, during which I was able to learn more about and witness the positive effects these treatments can have on her patients. Over my time shadowing Dr. Hannah, she became not only an insightful mentor but also one of my greatest inspirations due to her incredible compassion and wisdom of veterinary medicine that I witnessed in every appointment and interaction with her patients and clients.

Agata S.

When I was recommended to Cedarbrook Veterinary Care, I had no idea how lucky I was to find a veterinary practice with exceptional empathy, diligent work, and dedication. Dr. Hannah offers an extremely unique, hands-on veterinary experience. As a student with less equine experience, I immediately felt welcome on ride-alongs thanks to Dr. Hannah's calm and trusting demeanor. Along with learning about her equine veterinary practice, I have learned much about holistic and alternative medicinal approaches and the importance of customer service. After a ride-along with Dr. Hannah, your legs may be sore and your clothes may be dirty, but your heart will be happy and your mind will be full.

Like all of our staff our volunteers are interviewed, trained and accountable.

In keeping with our professional horse keeping standards, we carefully screen each volunteer applicant at professional standards and have an initial orientation with Dr. Hannah on a one-on-one basis so that she is able to determine your strengths and fit you perfectly within our farm community.

We rely on volunteer help to keep Cedarbrook Farms beautiful and sustainable so that we can continue to be a place of healing for animals and people in our community. Cedarbrook Farms offers discounts/donations to rescue horses that come to the farm for rehabilitation and Cedarbrook Veterinary Care also offers discounts/donations to rescue organizations for veterinary services through our rescue horse rehabilitation program. Your volunteer hours help to offset the farm maintenance and horse management costs that come with helping the horses in our community. We also run an Equine Facilitated Mental Health and Learning program at Cedarbrook Farms and the beautiful sanctuary like setting of the farm provides a place of mutual healing for both people and horses. Keeping the farm beautifully maintained helps Dr. Hannah and both Cedarbrook Veterinary Care and Cedarbrook Farms programs.

Come and enjoy the physical and emotional benefits of life on a horse farm! Does a day away from the city, exploring in our woods, and helping to maintain our trails or building new campsite areas sound fun? Do you like gardening and the methodical satisfaction of weeding, watering and watching things grow? Do you need some time to slow down and reconnect with animals and nature, or do you enjoy the physical outlet of poop scooping? We sure do!

Life on the farm feeds our heart and souls and keeps us fit and in tune with the natural world around us. We give back to our long term volunteers by allowing them to enjoy spending time at the farm connecting with the horses on a case by case basis, walking/jogging our trails, or simply having meditative time in nature. Often we are able to team volunteers up with an appropriately matched resident horse that they can build a relationship with while here, a win-win for both horse and human.

Our caretaking duty shifts start at 7:00 a.m. and go until 7:00 p.m. If you are interested in work parties or specific farm projects please let us know, times/hours vary and can be flexible! Your help is greatly appreciated and we welcome you to join our Cedarbrook Farms community!

If you are new to horses or a child you must be actively enrolled in our horsemanship program to have hands on interaction with the horses. There are plenty of other things for you to participate in at the farm if you are not able to enroll in the horsemanship program. Children must be accompanied by an experienced adult at all times.

If you are interested in one of these opportunities contact our office at (360) 794-9255 or email us at
