There is a waiting list for boarding, and Palos Verdes Estates residents are given priority when stalls become available. I left multiple phone messages requesting information about boarding, but my calls weren't returned. Apparently the way to communicate is in writing, either by regular mail or by leaving a note in Diana Winkler's mail box at the stables.

You must submit your request for boarding in writing and include the following:

Phone (day and evening)
Date of request
If you are a PVE resident and wish to receive preference you must include a copy of your current utility bill as proof of residency.
