What If Farms, Inc. is a non-profit horse and donkey sanctuary dedicated to providing forever homes (here at the farm) for those equines who are no longer wanted by their humans; particularly animals who are disabled or older and no longer considered “useful”, such as off track thoroughbreds.

We provide for the most essential needs of equines:

liberty to go in and out of shelter as they choose, plenty of room for movement, lots of grazing and the ability to be in a herd. We also explore and provide state-of-the- art holistic health treatments; research and update nutrition regularly; and provide consistency of handling, as well as consistency in our philosophical approach, recognizing that these non-human animals are cognitive beings with whom we share this world, exploring, experiencing and gathering information. We do not ride or ask anything of them. Simply, horses can be horses and donkeys can be donkeys In addition to providing the best care possible for all equines who come to live here with us, we also offer opportunities for visitors to the farm to learn about our unique, liberating approach, while maintaining the privacy and dignity of each animal.

“What If Farms is a really special place in a great location in Florida. The horses there are truly being horses and free to roam on many acres as a herd. As an equine-partnered workshop and retreat facilitator, I am often in search of professional facilities that meet a variety of needs for my clients and this location checks them all off! Christine is an incredible host and woman and keeps the farm immaculate and the horses happy and healthy. I'm excited to plan my first retreat at What If Farms and can't wait to see the healing magic that unfolds for the horses and humans!"

"Every occasion spent visiting and also facilitating retreat workshops at What If Farms is an energy of loving healing transformational heart-soul experience. For those who seek a stress free environment, becoming more unified with Nature surroundings and being deeply touched with the essence of the beloveds, horses, donkeys and all who you encounter here. You will be awakened, as I have been, to a truly peace-filled, cosmic, sacred presence of open skies, stars and magical elements.”
