What an absolute out of this world place. I have traveled the world, have swam with whale sharks and hung out with penguins in Cape Town. And out of all these places, the Dreamcatcher has a piece of my heart. The owners, the clients and volunteers all have some truly amazing stories of the wonderful animals they rescue and care for each and every day. The horses are so breath taking you feel the shear power they have and see the love in there eyes, is one thing I shall cherish for the rest of my days , Alfie the Alpaca is one heck of a character aswell. A must when ever visiting Florida with out a doubt.
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.
While staying in FL for the winter I was lucky enough to discover DreamCatcher. I partipated in the Love & Groom a horse activity they offer on Tuesdays. Juliette worked with me and she is a sweetheart. I took my daughter and grandaughter back for a fun festival the following Saturday. Everyone is super friendly, the horses are beautiful. The care shown to these lucky rescue horses, by Allison and all the volunteers, is so heart warming. Any visit to the ranch is a great hands on experience. If you get a chance to visit I highly recommend it.
I found Dream Catchers when looking for a place to have a birthday party for my then 8 year old. We had an amazing time, we had a lot of children, the service and friendliness we got was truly a joy. For the large number of children we had, they all still got to ride and have a ton of fun.
I've also vol. for an event they had and enjoyed being there. We are actually moving back to Clermont next month and will be quite close to the facilities, we are planning on doing some more vol. work. What great work they do. The horses look amazing after all the love and care they receive from the time they arrive. Very heart warming...
I signed my daughter up for DreamCatchers summer program years ago, and she still talks about it to this day! The staff and volunteers are so patient and kind with the children who participate, and their love for the animals and desire to care for them is apparent in everything they do. I would recommend Dreamcatcher Horse Ranch and Rescue 100%, absolutely wonderful place and an awesome experience for children!
Awesome place that takes great care of the horses. Since this is aworking rescue haven and not a petting zoo, I appreciate that their first focus is on the animals, as it should be. We had a great time grooming, walking and loving the horses... and the staff was very willing to answer questions and offer explanations to us.
I called and followed instructions for the day we were arriving and once there I ask for the person who was going to welcome us for the tour and rides but she never came to us and instead our welcoming was a grumpy lady complaining of too many people around the horses were disturbing and getting them nervous when in fact it was a new pig crying laud and because we weren't close to the animals at all. If the horses get nervous with visitors then the farm shouldn't be open to the public. The poor volunteer young ladies had to help out with the rides and tour even though they didn't know much about the animals. Over all the care for the animals is great but the staff needs to learn about customer care assistance!!
My mother planned this outing for my kids so we were excited to go since my daughter loves horses. The moment we arrived I did not get a welcoming feeling from the staff, at least not the adults. I do appreciate what the rescue center is doing for the horses who were poorly cared for before arriving at the center but I don't think it should be open for the public if they are not willing to be friendly and provide appropriate customer service. I appreciate the younger girls who assisted us, helped with our horse riding session and gave us a tour. Unfortunately I do not think I will be returning to this location. Just hope it goes better for the others who plan to visit.
As a neighbor to DreamCatcher, we have witnessed so many wonderful rehabilitations. The number of people who volunteer their time and services to ensure the health and well-being of the most beautiful creatures on Earth, truly amaze us. The owners and volunteers are relentless in their pursuit to make sure that every horse is given an opportunity to thrive.
We are so proud to be in their neighborhood.
Great origanization with heartwarming mission! Hope more people support this wonderful Rescue Center. Check it out!
