Services

For over 20 years, Indian Creek Farm and its staff have worked to develop a show horse facility that is respected, competitive and creates an environment in which you and your horse will thrive. Our reward is our valued list of clients who have been with us for years. Their friendship is by far our most meaningful compensation. It is our sincerest hope that our newest acquaintances will likewise share and enjoy this sport of showing with us for many years to come.

Below you will find an overview of some of the services we offer. To download a full pdf of our 2014 services, rates and information click here.

Board and Training$30/day



Boarding and training at our Indiana facilities includes stall, bedding, complete feed for a show horse including vitamin supplement and salt block, high quality hay and the best caretakers possible for daily grooming and professional training. Workouts are timed and dictated by the individual horse’s needs and abilities, and each horse is assessed on a daily basis. Depending on the time and experience a horse has had to benefit from training, we judge when each horse can be ready to show and where he would benefit best from showing. Likewise, if a new horse is sent to Indian Creek, we can make a fair and accurate appraisal of a horse’s ability (talent and in soundness) and desire to be show worthy within three months training time. With ninety days professional training, the owner can be advised if the investment is worthwhile to proceed in training, or if it could be better allocated elsewhere.

Show horse let down$22/day



Depending on the individual horses needs and condition, your trainers might decide to “let down” your show horse after show season. If it has been wearing a tail set all season, it might be removed for the winter, and your horse is turned out in its own paddock during the day, brought back in its stall and groomed and put up as it is accustomed at night. This is both relaxing and restful for a show horse’s mind and body. Some horses cannot tolerate being let down while others thrive on it.

Pasture Care$14/day



As a part of our facility, we also offer pasture board to customers for young horses, broodmares or retirees. We have 8 different managed pastures for full time turnout. Horses are observed and fed grain twice a day and are given extra hay if grass is deemed insufficient. Routine hoof care, vaccinations and deworming are also provided and billed accordingly.

Sales and Purchases of Horses

Any and all sales transactions conducted by a trainer at Indian Creek Farm, earns the trainer a commission of 10%. Horses that are prepared and put through public auction by Indian Creek Farm will be charged “on the road” expenses, plus 5% of the gross price that the horse brings through the auction. The seller pays for this preparation, presentation and commission. Special arrangements can be made on occasion.

Breeding Services

At this time Indian Creek does not stand any stallions. However, our staff enjoys the young horses very much and many of our clients have their own breeding programs, therefore we offer full service broodmare and foal care. We have qualified veterinarians that handle all breeding services under our supervision, and we also have access to an embryo transfer center located only miles from our farm. As a part of our foal care, all foals are halter broken, learn to lead and stand for the farrier.
