"Very comfortable sending my horses to a wonderful English horse lady that she is!"
~George Morris

"We have been sending our retirees for many years where they recieve the utmost love and care. We send our warmest thanks to Sally's Ark."
~Sagamore Farm

" We layover with Sally every winter, as we have for the last 10+ years, on our annual trip from New Jersey to South Florida and back again. Her facilities are extremely accomodating, giving horses, humans and even our dogs a place to be comfortable and relax! Sally is an excellent horsewoman, and we have nothing but good things to say about her and Sally's Ark!"
~Hunter Farms

" After having used Sally's Ark over the past few years I can highly recomment this facility for overnight stops with horses. The whole crew there is pleasant and will do what they can to make you and your horses satisfied clients."
~Beacon Hill Transport

"Sally's Ark came highly recommended as the number one place to retire my horse and it is easy to see why. The facility is picturesque, clean and super horse friendly. Sally is an expert in her field and her vast knowledge and experience make it comfortable for a conscientious horse owner like myself to sleep well knowing my horse is with her. If you want the very best for horse in terms of a beautiful and relaxing lifestyle and excellent care look no further!"
~Lila Chase, Riverdale Farm

"My horses and my staff stayed at Sally's Ark this year. What a great place! The facility is beautiful. The owners were so helpful. Everything was ready for us when we arrived and it was so nice after driving for 9 hours to arrive to such professionalism. My staff stayed in the bunkhouse right on the property, which was extremely convenient. I would recommend this to everyone in need of a layover. It is so close to the I 95 exit and easy to get to. We will definitely be back each year!"
~Kevin Babington Farm

We stop st Sally's every year driving South and back to Montreal with our horses ....for us it is a home away from home: thanks Sally!
