St. Petersburg College students volunteer at this facility and absolutely enjoy the hospitality of Glenda and friends. It is kind of sad that a disgruntled former volunteer, whose horses basically boarded for free, felt that this is a forum to air her discontent because the non-profit could no longer afford to feed and hay her horses. When she was asked to fulfill her obligation to "volunteer" in exchange for board, she became disgruntled and left. Of course, there is a lot of sand, it is called Florida, but there is a wonderful swimming hole that the horses love. Also, faithful donations keep the horses stocked with wonderful hay to munch on. Of course donations pay for medicine, vet bills, hay and feed, but it is the volunteers that come out to clean stalls,fix fences, lunge the horses, and brush and groom them, who provide a valuable service.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide them with about 200 grassy acres and a 40 stall barn without landlord harassment.

Hazards everywhere where horses roam. Too much sand, not enough grazing area. Multiple horse deaths from colic. What is going on there???
