Assurance of compassionate, individualized care eases transition to retirement – for the horse and its owner.

by Christyn Hendrick

The time comes in every horse’s life when it’s time to hang up their shoes and enjoy a well-earned retirement.  As owners, it’s our job to do the legwork and research to find the perfect retirement farm that will love and care for our horses in the same way that we do.

A lesson some owners learn the hard way is you don’t know what you don’t know.  No one tells you what questions you should be asking, or what pitfalls to watch out for, and there are a lot of things you assume would be included that are not.  With so many horse retirement websites full of beautiful pictures and similar sounding packages, it’s hard to tell the difference, but there is a horse retirement farm that is different: Trinity Sky Farms.

Located on 90 acres in the beautiful Central Tennessee area of Shelbyville, Trinity Sky Farms is unlike any other retirement farm.  It’s not just the beautiful pastures and custom-built barn that are so impressive. More importantly, it’s the level of care and one-on-one attention your horse gets.  Routine is very important for horses, especially horses transitioning from show life, and being tossed out in a field can be a culture shock for them.

Trinity Sky Farms offers your horse the daily routines they’re accustomed to such as morning/evening feeding of supplements (if needed), being fully groomed every morning before going out for the day and having their hooves picked every night when they come in. Most importantly, it’s the human interaction and affection they receive.  So many farms offer these things “as needed,” which may mean something different to you than it does to them.  When things are not part of a daily routine, they are more likely to be forgotten or overlooked.

As our horses age it is inevitable that they will need more care and daily maintenance.  How, and by whom will my horse’s health be monitored?  Is there a quality hospital nearby?

Are vet costs in the area expensive?  Will I have to pay extra for the farm to perform these treatments?  These are all important things to consider and part of what sets Trinity Sky Farms apart from the rest.  Your horse is physically gone over twice every day and by the same person so any minor change in their demeanor, body, eating and/or drinking habits is noticed right away.

With Tennessee Equine Hospital nearby your horse is guaranteed the top healthcare possible at astonishingly affordable prices in comparison to costs on the West and East costs.  Trinity Sky Farms doesn’t charge for arranging vet visits, holding your horse or performing the vet prescribed treatments.  Additionally, owners always receive copies of any vet bills and/or receipts for owner approved purchases with each month’s bill so there is always complete transparency.

Due to the fact that Trinity Sky Farms is so hands on and caters to each horse’s individual needs on a daily basis, they only offer a limited number of openings; guaranteeing that quality is never sacrificed for quantity.
