My Pet Training is a great opportunity for your pet to learn some basic social skills and tricks. I’ll take your pet to a nearby park for exercise, obedience training, and lots of fun and games. You’ll be able to tell after a Pet Training, because you’ll come home to a more mellow and happy animal.

Does your pet need more personalized attention? Do they have trouble getting along with others? Dog Walking is a great option for those cuddly buddies who can get a bit defensive around others. As I spend more time outside with them, your pet will become more comfortable with being around other animals.

Latte & Birgitta

OTTB & Dressage / Pennsylvania
Arrived August 2018

Latte is Mr. Dependable. At first his owner didn't realize that the horse she was looking for was right in front of her. Not as flashy as a lot of horses, Latte didn't stand out & was passed over by riders wanting a fancier horse. However Latte's owner finally realized his worth and the rest is history.
Latte quickly assumed control of his herd & enjoys playing with Slew, Toto, & Phil.



Warmblood & Dressage/Florida
Arrived November 2018

Dean originally imported from Germany has PSSM and allergies to soy. He acquired the name Blinki due to his habit of rapid blinking of his eyes when nervous. Dean is a very sweet horse who requires patience and understanding. Once you have gained his trust Dean is willing to do anything for his friends.
According to his owner Michelle, Dean likes nothing better than to hang out with a group of women chatting.

Reserve Your Horse's Retirement Today

Peace of Mind is Priceless.

At Orchard Equine Retirement we have been providing Full Care Horse Retirement since 1988. We know that retiring horses is so much more than turning a horse out in a pasture.

Much more.  We understand and respect the special relationship owners have with their horses. We understand how difficult it is to separate from your partner and friend.

We've been there. Lying awake at night wondering if they are being fed properly. If they are standing out in the weather, or are they comfortable inside their box stall or run in shed with their buddies.

It is that very relationship with a horse named Prince and the failed search for a horse retirement farm where he could safely retire, that inspires us to this day.

We look forward to discussing the retirement you want for your horse. Please include your horse's name in your message!

Our Rates 

We offer flat rate and itemized billing. Clients choose which method best suits their horse's needs and their preferences. Call or send a message to reserve your horse's retirement at the farm that continues to set the standard in horse retirement.
