Harper Stables is a 40-acre horse boarding business nestled in the western section of Tuscaloosa County. Located in Northport – only minutes away from the University of Alabama’s campus and downtown Tuscaloosa.

 

The stall boarding facilities at Harper Stables consist of two barns that are able to accommodate fifteen horses. There are nine stalls in the main barn and six stalls in the row barn. Each stall has automatic water, hay racks and corner feed buckets.

 

The main barn houses three tack rooms, two wash stalls and four cross-tie areas. Also, located just outside the main barn is a hitching post.

  

The property offers ample green grass for your horse whether it is stall boarded or pasture boarded. In order to make certain there is sufficient green grass during the dry summer months, an irrigation system waters some of the pasture and turn-outs. There are plenty of shade trees to provide a cooler spot for your horse during the hot summer days.

 

The pasture boarded horses have plenty of room to roam in the partially wooded 30 acre pasture that has a creek meandering along the eastern border of the property and a pond that is framed by trees. 

 

The feeding schedule consists of the stall boarded horses being fed twice a day and the pasture boarded horses being fed once a day. During the winter months, since the grass supply is significantly less, round bales of hay or square bales of hay are distributed in the pasture and in turn-outs.

 

Here at Harper Stables all of our boarders are viewed as an extension of the family. You are welcome to come by and visit. 

 

Happy Trails!
