It's Spring! Here are a few Spring reminders.

Longer days, more sun, grass and great trail riding!


Rain, heat and mud...


We love our spring but here are a few tips to get you and your horse ready for our quasi spring/ soon to be summer months of April!


Watch your weight! No not the 5 lbs you gained over the holidays and never lost, we are talking about your horses weight. Our horses gain a little in the winter due to the cooler days, you know, the days when they aren't constantly sweating just standing there. But be careful cutting back too much right now. Our days can be nice then super hot in just hours and you don't want to lose him to much weight just before the brutal summer months.


Watch the grass. High sugar spring grass can hurt horses with metabolic problems but putting horses out for too long on rich grass can make any horse sick. Limit grazing on new grass.


Make sure your first aid kit is up-to-date. Be prepared for snakes, bugs and other critters to come out of the wood work...


Don't forget your spring shots.


Groom out that winter coat. A heavy coat can lead to overheating and skin problems.


And of course, enjoy your long night rides!

Donations Needed! Even $5 can help a Horse!

Due to the downturn in the economy and the high cost of maintaining horses we have seen an increase in animal abuse. We are seeing more and more starving, sick and abandoned horses in South Florida. Our objective is to rescue these horses and provide them with a safe, clean environment and supply them with the food and care they need to bring them back to good health. We then work diligently to place them into their Forever Homes.


Our rescues have gone on to work as therapy animals, show horses and backyard pets. They are now in their forever homes but we wonder if they think about their old friends still at the rescue, still looking for a family.
