I live in upstate NY and was introduced to Dreamcatcher by a friend 2 years ago when I was there visiting. I have been back to visit several times now and am amazed by the place every time. A visit to Florida is never complete without a visit here. What they do for these animals is truly beyond anything I have ever seen. I recently made a decision to move to Florida and in looking for an apartment, one of the requirements for me was that it had to be within reasonable driving distance to Dreamcatcher. I never had an opportunity to have a horse of my own but certainly hope I am able to donate some time in helping out at Dreamcatcher in the near future.

To kick off Spring Break we decided to head to DreamCatcher Horse Ranch Rescue Center, there we were greeted by several of the staff members and a very loveable dog named Georgie, We proceeded on and were introduced to a beautiful horse named Champ , who by the way was a complete gentleman , Our tour guide for the day was Melodie she gave us some background history on the ranch and told us that each rescue has a unique story and the care and love that each animal gets. My daughter and her friend rode a couple of horses and had just the best time ever. There was quite a crowd that day but we were treated with much attention . I just love what they do here and without them, many horses would not survive. We enjoyed feeding various treats to all the horses and just fell in love with all of them. We will be returning in the near future

I volunteer whenever possible at Dreamcatcher's, this sanctuary for horses is like no other! Adrian and Alison Wheatley have gone above and beyond in providing a safe, healthy, and nurturing environment for their horses. Every horse at Dreamcatcher's is given special attention, from grooming and having a clean stall, to seeing a Veterinarian and Farrier on a regular basis. Nutritional needs are also addressed for each horse. The Wheatley family are the kindest, most gracious 'horse people' you will ever meet. I am grateful to have found Dreamcatcher's and enjoy spending as much time as possible with such a wonderful organization, where there is truly hope for horses! Sandy B.

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 found this place for my daughter to attend summer camp and she loved it. Everyone was really friendly. She has been taking horseback riding lessons there since and advanced a lot.
She loves all the horses there. All the work they do to rehabilitate the horses is amazing!

My daughter bounced from one equestrian center to another... Once we found Dreamcatcher we have never left.

This is a family place with a great staff.

My daughter has progressed with her equestrian training and her skills with the animals increase with each lesson and camps.

We recommend this facility to anyone that is new to horses or experience equestrians who are looking for a new riding center.

The work with their rescues is out of this world. They have taken in horses on the brink of death and are now on their way to recovery.

The one that always gets me is the horse that was saved from the butcher auction. The horse was being sold for meat and was thankfully saved and rehabilitated by the staff at Dreamcatcher.
