In the future of Horse Woods Farm.
Waltzing Horses Wellness Center invites horses in their retirement to live with complete care and in harmony with the land. What does that mean? Each horse lives with a unique combination of mind, body, and spirit needs. The climate and weather dictates the environment. The Morton barn/ indoor arena, shelters, living track, outdoor arena, and 5 pastures for rotational grazing provide the living choices.
Healthy land practices support healthy horse practices.
Horses have access to water, feed, movement, rest, and socialization without being compromised. A heartfelt goal is to care for and respect the land, so it supports the grazing, moving, and socializing nature of horses. Clean, well maintained, and not over used spaces are the basis of the living practice.
Footing and weather influence daily decisions. The indoor arena can double as a turnout in challenging weather. Sensitivity to the land reduces horses living in mud, burdened by bugs, subject to beating sun, and more.
As owner of the farm and personally managing the horses, Sue Eoff finds a freedom for taking right action, ensuring comfort, and care as needed, and not just on a schedule.
Day-to-day life is a dynamic path which requires many small decisions made throughout a 24 hour period. Horses are designed for movement and friendships. The ideal is for the horses to live as a herd, but individual needs might require different lengths of time in the fields, time walking on the living track system, or being where the shelters supports them according to weather.
Managing a "retired" horse requires the same attention to detail as a working horse. When the horses come in, it is into a clean, well-bedded stall with abundant forage and hand filled water buckets. During winter, horses are usually out during the day and in at night and during hot summer months, horses are often in during the day and out at night.
The house is adjacent to the barn and fields, so the horses are part of the family. They are observed and interacted with throughout the day.
All horses are welcome, but often horses living out their golden years are use to full care and need this while transitioning back to being a natural horse.
Kentucky is famous for its' blue grass and abundance of it. Horses with or without special metabolic needs require seasonal observation as the grass changes.
While visiting, feel the vibration of the vortex, woods, and meadows by going for a walk on beautiful fields and trails. A perfect chance to self reflect with nature.
The beauty of nature surrounds the installation of a wood labyrinth that can be walked with or without a horse.
Whether you own a horse or not, come experience being in the presence of these sensitive beings.
