My saddle sister and I went to the South West Florida Horse Rescue, Inc to go to a Mark Rashid, Considering The Horse Clinic which we go to every year in Florida. We found out that there would be one very close to our home so we decided to try out a new place. We did not know what to expect and actually did not expect too much at all, just in case it was not that great of a place. The women first of all where on the ball and communicated beautifully and helped with anything they could to accommodate before we even arrived. When we did we were extremely happy to see such a beautifully well kept, clean and happy environment for the horses!. The first thing out of the Manager Darcy's mouth was let's get your horses happy first then we will get you girls going. Well that did it right there, BOOM! Let's take care of the horses first!! From then on it was stellar!! The President Tina Garret was in the background taking care of everything, she is a work horse! Eileen Coe, coordinated all the riders and made everything go as smooth as silk, incredibly kind! The property had plenty of room for all the horses and guess what, their horses at the facility were HAPPY!!! You usually do not see that at a rescue around here. They had so many volunteers helping and they were so friendly! I will recommend this Rescue to anyone and everyone! We will be back next next and found a new home at South West Florida Horse Rescue!! Do not be hesitant to help with this team in anyway!
