"I currently board at Steeldust Meadows and would highly recommend it. Tracey is like a mother hen to the horse and takes the time to notice the smallest things as though they were her own. She is a very knowledgable horsewoman and is full of helpful advice if asked. Horses really do come first there.

"While I had my horse at Steeldust Meadows there was never a doubt in my mind he would be taken care of. Tracy looks after the boarders horses like they are her own. I knew if there was anything off with my horse I would find out right away. It is a very calm and relaxed atmosphere which allowed me to enjoy my horse."

Brittany & Jack

"I never have a doubt as to the tremendous care the horses are receiving at Steeldust Meadows. Tracy manages every detail with professionalism and a high degree of competence, evident in her commitment to consistent and individualized feeding plans, good water availability, systematic checks of each horse daily, as well as managing and providing health care as needed, quickly and effectively. The level of care and individual attention is very important for our horses. We cannot get out nearly as often as we would like but have not a single moment of hesitation putting our faith in Tracy as we know all of the horses at her facility are given top notch, individualized care and it shows in their exemplary condition. In addition the environment is so friendly and welcoming! We love how tremendously honest and genuine Tracy is - which just adds to our comfort knowing our horses are in such good hands."

I have been boarding my horse at Steeldust Meadows for a year and would not send her anywhere else.
I have a young horse with little training and Tracy has been a big help in giving me tips and advice on training.
I have also had the opportunity to take a lesson from Tracy. She’s an excellent teacher as she takes the time to explain how and why you must do things a certain way.
Tracy has been great in keeping Mitzi and I on a schedule for trimmings and vaccinations. She always reminds me when Mitzi’s next trim or vaccination is due.
I’m very greatful to have found Steeldust Meadows, as I know my horse is in good hands and I don’t have to worry about how she’s doing when I’m not there.

Liz and Mtizi

Simply the best place to date that I have ever boarded. Seriously, without a doubt, nobody does it better than Steeldust Meadows - horse boarding that is! Tracy does anything horse related better than anyone but the best boarding experience I have ever had was with Tracy. Honest, trustworthy, caring, beyond experienced like no other and an amazing horsewoman as well; horses really do come first at Steeldust Meadows!
