Not only does DreamCatcher rescue, rehabilitate and heal our equine friends they also train those horses that are able to be valuable members of the ranch while bringing much joy to both children and adults. Through DreamCatcher’s riding lessons, camps, Horse Clubs and other riding programs the rehabilitated horses are given a purpose and a job which besides the love, kisses and treats they absolutely love! I have two adopted beauties and would never move them from DreamCatcher because it feels like home, and, I know my guys are taken care of wonderfully!
I had the privilege of doing some community service work at the Dreamcatcher Horse ranch a few months back, I was pleased to have been able to work at the ranch and saw how they treated they're animals. The family that runs this ranch are very knowledgeable of the animals and spend a lot of time and effort to rehab abused and injured horses. They also have volunteers that are also knowledgeable of horses training and upkeep of the ranch. I would recommend this ranch to anyone that wants to learn how and about riding horses. I do know that it takes a very dedicated people to do what this ranch does. Most of the horses on the ranch are rescue animals, some worse than others but all are treated very well.
Ally at Deamcatchwer made my 30 year dream of owning my own horse a reality. They are always so helpful with any question or concern I may have and have seen their amazing work they do first hand with their rescue horses giving many a second chance at a life they deserve!
The work that Allie Wheatley does at Dreamcatcher Horse Rescue Ranch is nothing short of incredible. She rescues horses that would be put down otherwise and nurses them back to health.
She is an incredible lady and the love and trust these horses have with her has to be seen to be believed ... Well worth a visit to see what she does .....
I started volunteering at DreamCatcher ranch several months ago, and have really, REALLY enjoyed being around horses again. Being unemployed at this time in my life, I have no money, but LOTS of time, so I was happy to find a place that I could use my time to a great productive use. The horses that are being rescued are being given a wonderful new home where they are nourished and just being loved back to life. And the people that volunteer there are given that too... a place and a reason to feel good about their lives again. This is just a great place to work, ride, or just to hang out with the horses and the other people!
I'm a volunteer, donor and client served! This place is awesome! We drive over an hour each way, two, sometimes three days per week just to visit the ranch! My daughter takes lessons and I help out however I can. These horses have touched my heart. I have always loved animals but was never real comfortable with horses. A few years later, I suprise myself everytime I'm out there! Witnessing what the Wheatley Family does with their time and energy inspires me! I was never aware how how bad a shape and how unhealthy horses can get when neglected. Watching a skinny, sick, underweight, sometime blind horse come in and a few months and weeks later, watching that same horse, healthy and giving lessons to kids, amazes me!
There's nothing like it in Central Florida!
When I started volunteer for Dreamcatcher Horse Ranch and Rescue center it was a dream come true for me. I love helping all of the wonderful horses that come into the ranch. Some of these horses are so bad off when they arrive here and when in a couple of months, they look 150% better. This a is a wonder non-profit organization that helps horses and humans. Being at this wonderful place has brought me out of my shell as I am working with horses that need to be brought out of their shells also. The Wheatley family has done a wonderful job with all the horses that are brought into the ranch. I am so happy to be a part of this wonderful organization.
DreamCatcher Horse Ranch Rescue is a wonderful non-profit that provides a wonderful environment for its horses, visitors and volunteers. I came to DreamCatcher in March of 2011 with cancer. It was my goal to get back into riding. Not only did I gain a forever equine friend, Champ, but many other friends and family at DreamCatcher. Throughout my illness my weekly visits with Champ were/are a highlight. Soon I became envolved as a volunteer using my skills from helping the military through donations and events. Now my husband, Cary and I help DreamCatcher through the donated website, marketing and donation soliciation programs to help the horses of DreamCatcher. Our six year old daughter, Mackenzie has caught the love for horses through her visits at DreamCatcher and has a forever friend with pony, Buttercup. She is now riding with Little Girl and has learned so much about horses and other animals at DCHR. The Wheatley Family that started the rescue out of the goodness of their heart have not only touched the lives of so many horses, but people as well. Our family will continue our support of the horses and the rescue through our volunteer efforts for many years to come. I encourage you to come out to the various events or just call ahead for a barn tour...I am sure that the horses will touch your heart and have a special place with you and your family. Please support DreamCatcher Horse Ranch Rescue Center, Inc. in Clermont, FL.
