Join an active equestrian community when you board at the Savage Riding Academy! Our facility is surrounded by quiet and picturesque farm views and is out of the hustle and bustle, but centrally located between several thriving Elkhart County towns and major highways. Our two- and four- legged clients are like family to us, and we would love to have you be a part of it!

About our Facility

Full care board is $300 per month, with temporary discounts offered to those in need so that we can help you keep your horse during tight times.  We are located just south of the town of Bristol, Indiana, conveniently only 5 minutes from the I-80 toll road and the US 20 Bypass, and 15 minutes south of the Michigan border.

We are first and foremost a place of learning and discovery, and strive to promote a positive community atmosphere.  We are an active barn, with daily lessons for an average of 75 families per week running M-Th from 2:30-8:00 and Community Days alternating Fridays from 4:00-7:00pm.

We host and travel to a variety of events year round in all disciplines to connect our farm family to equestrians around the area.  We are a relaxed, laid back atmosphere in many aspects, but take the care of your horse and the preservation of our community standards very seriously.
