Horse Boarding Stable - a full service stable within minutes of Acadia National Park

Are you and your horse planning a trip to Acadia National Park?  Board with us!  Wild Iris Farm offers full-service boarding by the day, the week, the month or the year.  Play with your horses on the 47 miles of Acadia's world-famous carriage roads during the day and then let us take care of them when you are done.  We'll make sure they are fed, watered, turned out,  and their stalls are kept clean, freeing you to enjoy all that Mount Desert Island has to offer.

 

Wild Iris Farm is conveniently located 1.5 miles from the main entrance to Acadia National Park and its 47 miles of world-famous cariage roads.  The spectacular carriage roads were designed to be used by horses.  Many equestrians, whether they ride or drive their horses, have these carriage roads on their "must do" list..

 

Our stalls are 12' x 12'.  Each stall has its own attached 12' x 12' outside area.  We have over 15 acres of pasture to accommodate horses that need turn-out.  Our fencing is safe, electrified, braided rope.  Grazing in our pastures is rotated on a regular basis.  Pastures are harrowed after and before grazing.
