Set among the pine trees on a horse farm in Valkaria, Florida, is a pasture where
Debbie Phillips maintains a group of horses, usually numbering around five or six. They have been rescued from
neglect or from owners that simply couldn't take care of them any more.
To support the feeding and care of these
animals Debbie provides riding lessons for children and young adults, using some of the other property at the
farm. Students get experience with grooming and tacking up a horse, and can ride in the fence-enclosed property
safely under Debbie's supervision.
