Horses have been boarded at the corral since the Association was established in 1972. We have space for eight (8) horses in the corral and pasture area(s). As spaces become available Elk Creek Highlands/Meadows Property Owners Association (ECHPOA) members and those outside the subdivisions have the ability to board horses on Association Property by paying a monthly fee. Openings for new boarding positions will be posted through emails to the ECHPOA members, on this blog, and on the bulletin boards near the mail boxes. All new boarders will be interviewed and approved by the current boarder clients and the Board of Directors of ECHPOA. Criteria considered during the interview process include but not limited to; current boarder, number of horses per household, length of ECHPOA membership, residence status, amount of time a boarder is able to contribute to corral maintenance and chores, and horse temperament. The boarding fee is $50.00 per month for ECHPOA members or $125.00 per month for residents outside the subdivisions. However, Member Clients who were renting from ECHPOA prior to January 1, 2016 shall remain at $35.00 per month until changed by the ECHPOA Board of Directors. Money spent for corral improvements come out of the funds received from membership dues and boarding rental.
For more information about membership, see the About ECHPOA page.
