Learn all about horses, and taking care of them, plenty of riding, obstacle courses, horse painting, crafts, and an end of week "show" with their horse! All meals and waters included. Hours are between 9-5pm We will FB live at certain points during the day so parents can check in and see their kids doing such amazing things! All proceeds go to help the horses here!
What we do:
Horse Rehabilitation/Retraining/Rehoming We take injured horses directly from the track, or from training farms, rehabilitate them, and help them transition to local families in Lee and Collier Counties looking for trail horses or companion horses. Most of the horses need 6 months to a year of “time off” due to their injuries. Typically these might include Suspensory injuries, bowed tendons, fractured sesamoids and slab fractures. Many of these horses are refused by track funded rescues and have nowhere to go.
Other than racehorses, we occasionally take in other breeds of horses and also help out horses that have been abandoned or starved and are in need of rescue. Other breeds account for about 20% of the horses that come here.
This work is time consuming and expensive but very rewarding to see these athletes go on to second careers with local families that make them part of their families.

Outreach and educational work.
Each year we increase our outreach and educational programs, from the ASPCA event, how to adopt a horse to hoof care, retraining, saddling fitting, equine dentistry, meditation, massage, and training workshops. In 2017 we hosted our first, low cost, microchip clinic!
We travel with the horses, to show how great an off track thoroughbred is, including Rural King, the Pioneer Museum at Robert’s Ranch, The Ridgewood Cafe, Marco Island Country Club, Momentum Brewhouse, Sheriff’s Night out (Collier County) churches, parks and community events.
