Core Values

Volunteering

If you have able hands, we want your help. Whether hands on with our rescues, fundraising, emails, updates, event planning, etc., we have a job for you!

Free Spirit Equestrian Center & Rescue, Inc.  Plant City, Florida  ~ 239-898-0601

 Free Spirit Equestrian Center’s primary acquisition focus is assisting law enforcement.  This includes receiving neglect complaints, investigating neglect complaints, working with law enforcement agencies to educate owners about proper horse care when possible and assisting law enforcement agencies in removing neglected, abused or abandoned horses when necessary.  While assisting law enforcement, our secondary method will allow for owner relinquishment of horses in the private sector that are in need of rehabilitation.​​


Free Spirit Equestrian Center recognizes and appreciates the contribution of the many volunteers that make up the organization.  Recruitment, retention, and recognition of volunteers will always be important to FSEC.

Free Spirit Equestrian Center will not participate in lobbying or legislative efforts or endorse any candidate for public office.


Free Spirit Equestrian Center does not permit the breeding of any equine adopted through our organization.  All horses and other equines adopted from FSEC will be castrated, if male, prior to approved adoption and all mare contracts will include a non-breeding agreement.

Free Spirit Equestrian Center strives to provide protection and support to the horses in our program for life.  We will provide an open door policy for the return of our equines in the event the adopters are on longer capable of providing proper care.  These equines will be relinquished back into our care giving FSEC the right to rehome them to approved homes. ​ ​

Free Spirit Equestrian Center strives to strike a balance between the quantity of rescues and the quality of each rescue.  As our goal is to save every equine that comes to us, we will at times have to make decisions based on rehabilitation and financial limits.  For those that cannot be saved due to health issues or are a danger to society, our policy will be to use humane euthanization through our veterinarian
 .
