Does anyone board horses in Belize? If so, what have been your experiences? Are vets and ferriers readily available? Will Mennonites board? Any equine diseases spreading there? Any reports of EIA? Any help is appreciated.

For good, reliable information on horses, you might want to get in touch with Johnny Carr at Banana Bank near Belmopan or the Bevises at Mountain Equestrian Trails at Mile 8 of the Pine Ridge Road. The Carrs have about 75 head and MET has quite a few, and together these folks probably have 75 years of experience with horses in Belize.

Perhaps...it sure would give me something to do...But I'll be living on AC...not sure it's feasible. Would be very interested to learn how and where to buy feed and hay though...

You might want to contact Mike deShield at deshield@btl.net. He's the govt vet. I'm sure you can find plenty of places to board your aninmal. You'll need lots of feed if you board on SP.

when i was at banana bank in '93, the horses had quite a few parasites, such as fleas & ticks, or their counterparts. you may wish to ask about that too.

this was on the main land, tho. near the jungle. FYI.

Thats neglect plain and simple. Plenty of safe and effective treatments against such things.
