"The USHJA Equine Retirement Facilities List, presented by the USHJA Horse and Rider Advocates Committee, is a resource for locating reputable retirement facilities for retired sport and competition horses. The directory is vetted annually to ensure that all listed facilities are current and maintain industry standards for basic horse care."
Arondel Equestrian Center is the most beautiful and peaceful retirement home. As a horse owner, I believe no matter the horse’s age, they need to have turnout. I was so impressed with her spacious and well-kept pastures. The individual horse care is second to none. She manages every detail with such thoughtfulness and care for them as they were her own. It provided a great piece of mind knowing my horse was safe, happy and healthy living out her last years. I would receive updates with photos and videos of my girl! I highly recommend Arondel Equestrian Center if you want only the best for your retiree!
My retired Trakehner mare stayed with Amy before my husband and I bought our own farm. The facility was perfect for my girl with large stalls and plenty of turnout. Amy is an experienced horsewomen who cares for every horse.like it’s her own. She was great at keeping the lines of communication open, regularly sending emails and pictures. Although I was a state away, I never worried about my mare while she was safely in the hands of Amy Fischer at Arondel Equestrian Center!

I want to thank you for taking such good care off Diva. It was a huge comfort to know she was being loved the way we love her. I couldn't have asked for her to be in better hands and really appreciate you looking after her these last few years.

I sent my 2 special needs geldings from Florida to retire with Amy and couldn't be happier with the love and care she provides. She sends updates and pictures weekly and I don't worry about them even though they are 900 miles away
