I have been a supporter of Skip Over Trouble for years and have visited several times. I am always so impressed with the care that they give to these horses that others had given up on. I have seen them take in a donkey that was terrified of people and with proper care and patience change him into a happy, friendly pet! I am especially impressed with how they follow up after adoption and take back animals if necessary. Penny and Jeff work very hard to make Skip Over Trouble a very special place and the love and attention that these animals get is heartwarming.
I had heard good things about Skip Over Trouble, so when I drove up to the Ocala area from South Florida, I visited Penny & Jeff and saw first hand the great work they are doing. Penny & I spoke for a long time and I was so impressed and moved about how much she both knew about horses and how passionately she, and Jeff, care about horses. They follow up on the horses that they adopt out and that means a lot to me. I visited a year later and I was no less impressed. It really made me feel good to know that there were 2 such caring people working with horses. I have donated over the years and plan to continue to do so.
Thank you Mary , we look forward to your visits !
I can't say enough good things about this rescue. I knew from my first visit there that it was the kind of horse rescue that I would be happy to help support. The facility was as clean and neat as could be, hay bags were stuffed full of first quality hay and to top things off, Penny, Crosby the owner and rescues founder was picking up manure out of the paddocks! All the animals there looked very content and were friendly and curious. After talking with Penny, it was clear to me that she truly loved each and every animal on the premises from young to old.
Skip Over Trouble Rescue also has an excellent handling and training program Horses that are up for adoption are evaluated for their level of training and when necessary, the time and effort is put into their retraining so as to assure their future success in their new life. Also perspective adopters are always welcome to take advantage of free lesson in horse care and also riding. Their “No questions asked” return policy also assures that adoptees always have a safe place to return.
Things have not always been easy for this rescue, and in the past, the majority of its day to day operation has been funded by Penny and her husband. They also do most of the care taking and work involved keeping the rescue up and running. Recently, support has grown some and hopefully will continue to do so. Skip Over Trouble is a very worthwhile rescue.
Thank you so much Jennie, we very much appreciate the support you have given us !
Wonderful people & wonderful place! Beautiful, well cared for rescue horses & other rescue animals. Couldn't ask for a better experience. Love! Love! Love! :)
It takes wonderful people like you to adopt and give these horses a great life !
I met Mrs. Penny and Jeff when I was looking for a new horse because I was wanting to start jumping an showing again. After taking some time talking to penny an coming out to the rescue I was shown a amazing OTTB, his name was Pro Bio. She informed me of his ups and downs an his past. Needless to say after spending a few hours with this amazing gelding I had to take him home. Their only goal is to find the Perfect home an owner for each horse an nothing more. Thank you both so much again.
Thank you Shannon,and thank you for giving Bio such a amazing home !

This rescue does such a great job with the rehab and rehoming of the animals in their care. Wonderful people who put the animal's welfare above their own! They also put on some great shows this year to showcase their efforts and to enable the public to enjoy a horse show in a casual, comfortable atmosphere.
Thank you Denise..your a wonderful lady with a heart for animals of all kinds
