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 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.
Thank You

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!
