Rating: 4 stars  

Haven Horse in St. Augustine Florida has helped my daughter receive equine therapy at an affordable cost. Her OT is great and we are pleased.

The therapists that work at the ranch are fantastic! The handlers are all super sweet and really know the horses and their different personalities. Everyone interacts so well with one another and the ranch itself is beautiful.

The owner is terribly rude and lacking in hospitality and good business manners. Staff is wonderful but the owner spoils the bunch...

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

Hide owner from clients.

We do our best to see that everyone has a great experience here at Haven Horse Ranch, keeping our mission and commitment to children with SPecial Needs first and foremost. Regrettably sometimes we fall short of meeting everyone's expectations and we apologize for that. We will continue to do our best to meet everyones needs and expectations and hope that if or perhaps when we fall short, we will be judged on our total efforts and not just one isolated incident.

My daughter has gone to camp there for the past 2 years and loves it.

To keep my daughter interested, I think allowing her to use more skills in the show would make the show at the end of camp more worthwhile to her. Other than that we love it and everyone involved.

I became involved with the ranch both from a fund raising and customer standpoint this year. I am extremely inpressed with the level of professionalism that they bring to their approach to everything from fundraisers to therapy and lessons for the general public. Everyone there is devoted to the kids and really give of themselves to make sure they get the best out of their experience at the ranch.

My son participates in the therapy program at Haven. In only four months time, we have seen great improvements in his posture, patients and confidence. He truly lights up every week as he see Fancy walking towards him. I couldn't be more happy with the staff too! We feel like family.

I have visited Haven Ranch a few times, and just walking the grounds, meeting the folks and seeing the horse's, gives me a humble awww, feeling! Seeing and knowing how the ranch helps so many, is incredible! My mother in-law had MS, and over time, confined to a wheelchair. If we could have had a place such as Haven, what an experience she would have had! Mom didn't get the chance, but knowing so many others can experience the joy and knowing the confidence it instills is incredible! Thank You Haven Horse Ranch, for ALL that you do, and the LOVE you share thru the program of horses! So honored to know you, and see all you do thru HIS work!! Can't wait for another visit, and horse ride!!
