WHY ROSPER?

At Rosper, your equestrian club in Vilanova, we think that each horse is different and unique, and therefore has specific boarding needs. We do not offer magic formulas or strict rules, but we do offer a clear criterion based on well-being, respect and constant work.

Our staff goes above and beyond to attend to the needs of each horse and owner. Our team is made up of sports technicians, experienced waiters and a very attentive administration service. The team is led by Victoria Douma, trained as a medium-level Sports Technician, Graduated in Veterinary Medicine (UAB) and Postgraduate in Equine Clinic (UAX). At Club Hípico Rosper, your equestrian club in Vilanova, we carry out exhaustive boarding work so that your horse is healthy and relaxed, in order to improve its physical, mental and emotional condition day by day.

Our equestrian club, located near Vilanova, is open daily so you can come and check our boarding tasks and enjoy the tranquility and facilities with your horse.

SERVICES FOR THEM

PADDOCKS WITH SHELTERS

We have 20 paddocks, of different dimensions, all with shelters and automatic drinkers. The paddocks offer more movement to the horse and allow them to interact more closely with the horses next to them. Ideal if you have little time to ride, if you have older or younger horses with a greater need for movement.
The paddocks of our equestrian club, near Vilanova, facilitate the tasks of boarding, since they are cleaned weekly and, optionally, a bed of straw or shavings can be put in the shelter.

STABLE + DAY PADDOCK

We have 24 3mx3m stables with day paddocks. All the horses that live in these stables go out to the 5m x 15m paddocks during the day. It is a good option for any horse, especially if it works daily or is in competition and, in any case, if you want your horse to rest more protected from the weather.
All the stables are made daily, have a bed of straw (or shavings under supplement) and automatic drinker.

XL STABLES WITH TERRACE AND DAY PADDOCK

We have 10 3.5m × 3.5m stables with a terrace and exit during the day to the 5m x 15m fence. Recommended for horses of great size, that work daily or that are in competition. All the horses go out to the individual enclosures daily to have more freedom of movement and to interact with other horses.
The stables are cleaned daily and have a bed of straw (or shavings at an additional cost) and an automatic drinker.

FEEDING

All boarding options include hay-based feeding divided into a minimum of 3 daily intakes (see slow feeders options) and a supplement with cereal muesli for all horses that need more energy.

The feeding of a horse, as a herbivore, must be based on forage. In order to compensate for the energy waste caused by exercise, the diet is supplemented with cereal muesli-based feed, but this should not exceed 20% of the diet or 1% of body weight. Our feed is of good quality and suitable for horses that do a medium job, but if they need any special feed due to their own characteristics (gestation, older horses, in recovery, etc.) we can help you find it. Due to the characteristics of the horse’s digestive system, the quality of the forage is very important, feeding with straw is not considered adequate, since it is very woody, fiber is not used and causes colic problems.

ADDITIONAL SERVICES

RIDING SERVICE

If you wish, we can ride your horse, so that it improves its physical abilities and prepares it in the different disciplines. The horses are ridden by Ruth and Vicky, riders trained in Dressage, Show jumping and Full Show.

HORSE RECOVERY

If your horse suffers from an injury and needs a few months to recover, we can help you. We have different paddocks of different sizes and we can support in the process of progressive adaptation to work.

DENTIST VISIT

Periodically the dentist comes to attend to our horses. Their teeth are constantly growing to compensate for the wear and tear of the diet but it can become unbalanced. It is important to check it once a year to avoid serious problems.

FARRIER SERVICE

Upon arrival we will ask for the contact of your farrier (or if you do not have your own, ours can assist you) to be able to contact if necessary and we cannot locate you.

VETERINARY SERVICE

Upon arrival, we will ask for the contact of your veterinarian (or if you do not have your own, ours can assist you) so that we can get in touch if necessary and we cannot locate you.

PURCHASING/SELLING ADVICE

If you decide to buy a horse or need to sell the one you currently have, we can assist you in the process. Buying a horse or pony is a delicate process to choose the one that best suits the rider and the discipline that he wants to do.

LUNGING SERVICE

We will be happy to help you if you need your horse to move or work on the lunge with special rendages (weight, fixed reins, etc.) to strengthen its back and improve contact.

PHYSIOTHERAPIST VISIT

Periodically the physiotherapist visits our horses. If a review or a session is needed to decontract, recover from an injury, etc. You can let us know so that we can attend you.

SPECIALISED NATURAL HORSEMANSHIP VISIT

Periodically we are visited by the Natural Horsemanship specialist who helps us if any of our horses has any fear, behavioural problems or, simply, if you want to expand your knowledge in animal communication.
