“You will not find a friendlier or kinder people than Marisa and Jessie from Spirit’s Promise. They run a clean rescue for so many horses and mini’s, and even a pig! They are wonderful- fun- accepting – welcoming and full of life and love–impossible not to have a wonderful time here.”

“Our 18-month old loves horses. (She spends a lot of time with her grandma and grandpa’s rescue minis and watches Spirit: Riding Free.  We were excited to take her to In the Spirit of Christmas today for some Christmas fun. What a beautiful place. The people who worked there were all so warm and friendly, and they went out of their way to tell us the individual stories of the animals they’ve rescued. We fed the animals and then went inside. It was our daughter’s first time meeting Santa, and it couldn’t have gone better. We took some photos with him and then sat down to have some cocoa and cookies (which were very delicious). After a few minutes, our daughter rushed back across the room to be with Santa again. This place is very special, and we hope to make this an annual holiday tradition.”
