- What Makes Us Unique -

Uphill Dressage Center is a commercial boarding stable for dressage horses that feels like a private club. With only 18 stalls, boarders and their horses receive the personal attention they deserve. Our facility features large, regulation-sized indoor and outdoor arenas, grass and all-weather paddocks, and a round pen. We enjoy easy access to miles of beautiful trails.

Some of our other amenities include indoor arena heaters, state-of-the-art dust-free footing, mirrors and an integrated sound system. Riders and their guests enjoy our clean, climate controlled tack room and lounge. Our roomy, well-ventilated stalls are equipped with heated Jugg™ Automatic Waterers and StableComfort™ mattresses. Flies are controlled with Fly Predators™ in the paddocks and an automatic misting system in every stall. For horses with special needs, we offer a Haygain™ hay steamer and a Respond™ laser.

We are open seven days a week, 365 days a year, because we know how precious those riding hours are. We have a full bathroom complete with shower for those who want to ride before work or another event. And we offer a flexible menu of boarding options which can be customized to suit individual needs. Best of all, we are exclusively a dressage facility. Whether they compete or not, everyone who rides here loves dressage!
