As an Arabian Breeder, our goal is to produce the finest quality Arabians For
Sale. Our Arabian Horses consistently possess wonderful dispositions and show
attitudes, and also make great performance horses. We hand-raise each of our
Arabian Foals from birth ensuring they are handled daily in order to instill
a confident and gentle spirit.
We are dedicated to providing unsurpassed quality care, health management and
proper nutrition for the Arabian Horses For Sale at our ranch. Our ultimate
ambition is to maintain and enhance the qualities of soundness, type and conformation.
We feed premium timothy hay and Colorado orchard grass, along with Triple Crown
Feeds, the #1 premier horse feed in the United States, and they are consistently
voted the “Best Feeds” in America by the Horse Journal. This feed
is 16-22% non-structured carbohydrates (low carb, high calories) depending on
which stage of life is chosen. The company’s focus is to provide the very
best nutrition to horses utilizing the newest nutritional knowledge and innovated
ingredients available in the marketplace today. This feed is well worth the price
and we suggest it to everyone who wants to keep their horses healthy and reduce
the number of veterinary calls due to the five man made diseases; colic, ulcers,
tying up, laminitis, and founder.
We feed our Arabian horses the recommended poundage for their size and divide
it into four meals a day. By feeding horses often, one avoids many of the man-made
diseases so prevalent today. We are proud to say our halter and performance horses
are also on the Succeed Digestive Conditioning Program when sent to a trainer’s
barn and we have had great success with it. We have not had any health issues
since adopting this diet plan and our vet bills have dramatically reduced other
than normal maintenance for the horses.
We offer Full Board and conditioning; stalls with grass paddocks attached, daily
pasture turnout, mare and foal care, all at reasonable rates.
Our treasured broodmares and foals reside in a stable that has a misting system.
We are in a secluded country setting with four grass paddocks and mountain views.
The horse property has room for 16 horses, including tack room, feed room, grooming
and wash bays, a blanket/equipment storage room, barn for hay storage, and two
stallion stalls. There is a 100 x 200 riding arena, and one 60 foot round pen.
There is also a covered mare motel with misters for cooling the horses during
our extreme heat in the summers. A tall block wall surrounds the entire farm.
The four grass paddocks and mare motel are fenced with white iron 4-rail fencing.
The entire facility is designed for comfort of the horses, efficiency of operation
and most importantly, safety for the horses
at River Valley Arabians is to offer a rewarding, low stress
and horse-friendly atmosphere to the Arabian horses. We care
about our animals’ mental and physical well-being. The barn was remodeled and designed to be spacious
with ample airflow and natural light streaming in. Each stall
has open fronts and our Arabian horses enjoy being part of a “herd atmosphere.” Each horse spends about six hours a day playing and eating grass outside. They
simply love coming home and being horses when not in a show
River Valley Arabians has earned a reputation
for being ethical, dedicated, compassionate,
caring – and above all – honest and kind to the animals in our care. The number one priority at the ranch
is caring for our “jewels of the desert”.
River Valley Arabians would like to express
gratitude to the many photographers
and videographers who help bring out
the true beauty of our Arabian horses.
