Horse Owner Workshops is a web site designed to create a better world for horses, keeping them out of rescues and dangerous or "at risk" situations through education, training and preparation for their owners.

I was a volunteer since 2004 at the South Florida SPCA horse rescue and the Volunteer Director since 2007 and head of an equine rehabilitation and training team. In my years at SFSPCA I noticed that many of the rescues came from people who got in over their heads. Their intentions were not to be cruel but they had not planned for the long lives that horses can live, they didnít understand their basic necessities and they could not afford to provide those necessities.

When I left the organization in 2012, I decided that I could best continue to help horses by educating their owners and by providing stall rentals in a barn that would be the example of humane care standards in horse care.

Whether you are new to the horse world or currently own a horse, I hope that you will find this information to be helpful!

Seeking a summer horse camp?
Here are some things to consider.

 Is there adult supervision? Do they make kids wear helmets while riding and have other safety rules? Find out exactly what activities your child will participate in and what, if anything, they should learn out of the camp.

Visit the camp and check out the animals. Do they appear healthy and in good condition? Is there plenty of food and water for the animals on the property? If the animals don't look good, DO NOT give them your money. If you don't know how the animals should look or if they are appear questionable, ask a friend who knows to visit with you.
