Our Mission Statement:
Willow Pond Stables (WPS) is a family owned and operated facility, which offers high quality horse boarding services, horse care, horse training, and riding lessons to equestrians in Saginaw County and beyond. WPS is committed to operating safely, ethically and in an environmentally friendly manner.
The horses at Willow Pond Stables are provided with excellent care and companionship. We have several separate pastures and paddocks, which allow herd management and encourage the horses to find compatible buddies. Our owned-horses as well as the horses boarding with us, spend their days grazing, playing, sleeping, and spending time with other horses. In addition, our staff works very hard at bonding with the horses and gaining their trust.
We have Saginaw Veterinary Equine Clinic on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and a trusted Farrier that provides services every three weeks in the summer and every four weeks in the winter. We are confident that you will find our barn a safe and reliable place for your horses.

Horse Health Requirements
A current negative coggins test within current year or the last 12 months is required. We are a large boarding farm so it is best to provide your horse with all spring and fall shots recommended to ensure your horse has the best care. If you choose to do this on your own, it is required that a WPS team member witness the injections and we will need a copy of your receipt showing proof of immunizations.
