Natural Horsemanship & Training
Following the rehabilitation process, training is the next most important part. We retrain our equines from ground manners forward. Find out more about our programs. Do you need help with your horse? We can help with that too.
Our rescue operates completely from the generosity of volunteers. Are you interested in volunteering? We have many volunteer positions available. Not comfortable with hands on or don't live in Florida? No problem, we are in need of behind the scene volunteers too!
Thank you for your interest in Free Spirit Rescue! We are a strong team of hard working volunteers making a difference. We are a full volunteer based organization. Rescuing large animals in deplorable condition is very expensive. We rely on the public through fundraising, events, sponsorship's, etc., to cover the high costs of our mission. We are always looking for dedicated volunteers to help in these efforts. We have multiple volunteer positions available. You do not have to live local to make a difference.

Horse Development and Care
Rescuing these animals is a tearful job. They are massively underweight, very sick, neglected and most often angry at the time of rescue. Our Rehabilitation Program is based on love, compassion and patience. Sometimes they come around in just a few hours or days, however, many times it takes weeks and/or months depending on the abuse. We allow them all the time they need to trust "us". Many people ask how long it takes to rehab these horses. Here is our answer...As long as it takes! We never put a time frame on their rehab process. If it takes one month or five years, we are completely comfortable with those timelines. We pride ourselves in completely retraining our equines so we can place them in their perfect forever homes. On top of the rehab costs, the training costs are as well costly. Your sponsorship's or purchases, help us cover all of the costs. We certainly could not do this without your support. Would you like to help us continue our efforts?
