Board Your Horse

Join our barn-family!

The Mercer Island Saddle Club, located on the south end of Mercer Island (King County), does not currently have any openings for boarding.

Please see below for description of boarder requirements and facility amenities. If you think you and your horse may be a good fit for the club and would like to join our wait list, please email us at barnmanagers@misaddleclub.org to discuss or schedule an appointment to come visit.

Note - While the MISC property is open to the public, if you are interested in a tour as a prospective boarder we recommend making an appointment so that we can better accommodate your visit.

  • Boarding and riding (or leasing) at the club requires membership at MISC. Dues are $200/quarter per individual or family.

  • Active membership is essential at MISC. Members are required to attend quarterly membership meetings and to participate in quarterly work parties to maintain the property. Additional involvement in projects and in club governance/betterment is encouraged!

  • The board is $500 per month and includes up to 6 flakes of hay (timothy or alfalfa) a day over three feeds, watering, and a daily allowance of shavings for your stall.

  • Boarders muck their own stalls a minimum of once a day and provide/feed their own grain.

  • Horses eligible for boarding at MISC are reasonably well-behaved mares or geldings and must be rideable/drivable. MISC is not intended for retired horses or horses in convalescence/layups.

  • Each "stall" is responsible for 3-4 feeding shifts each month, which consists of performing a daily hay feed, watering the horses, and tidying up the barn afterwards.

  • All stalls are ~12’x12’ and have ~12’x20’ run outs attached to each stall

  • Because turn out is limited, all horses in residence must be exercised (in any of many forms) at least once each day.

  • Each stall gets a large locker for tack/equipment and space in a large tote above that locker

  • We have a large outdoor arena (120’x200’) that is useable ~50% of the year and we have a smaller indoor arena (60’x156’, footing was redone in April of 2018) that comfortably accommodates 3-4 riders at once depending on how good they are at steering.

  • Arenas are dragged regularly.

  • Dedicated and purposefully maintained in-hand grazing area.

  • Hot/cold wash rack.

  • All disciplines are welcome!

  • Trainers are welcome so long as they can provide proof of insurance naming the Saddle Club. We also have several trainers already teaching regularly at the club whom we adore and have room for more students in their schedules

  • We have access to ~1 mile of trails across the street in Pioneer park and are only a 20-minute haul from Bridle Trails State Park.

  • Trailer parking is available.

  • Accessible, tidy restroom.

  • Property is fenced along entire perimeter and is secured after hours.

  • We have a great “barn family” and are excited to add to it! We all are in it for the love of the horses and sport and we all genuinely value a supportive, co-operative, and drama-free environment.

Our cooperative barn is a non-profit organization run entirely by its members. In the true spirit of community and partnership our members use teamwork to care for the horses, humans, and this special property. Partial care board is a big responsibility and can be a lot to handle, but several of our boarders manage this responsibility either by buddying up with fellow boarders, or by offering their horse for part lease and sharing the horse-care responsibilities with other members that do not own a horse. We often have a waitlist of experienced equestrians interested in partial or half leases but not enough horses to meet the demand. We are fans of these arrangements at MISC because they bring more members into the barn to enjoy our horsey pursuits with and to share in our co-operative efforts. Many hands make light work!
