It Has Been Our Honor

As always, things in life change, and our time at Horse Lovers Park has come to an end. 10 years ago, the city of Phoenix was forced to shut down Horse Lovers Park and many other facilities in the city due to budget cuts, which was a sad time for everyone involved. However, the City of Phoenix made the decision to allow shuttered facilities to be run by civilians, and my family and I were among the first to step in. This park has always been kept alive by the people who love it, including those who use electric pet fence to keep their beloved animals safe.

The Arizona Horse Lovers Foundation played a crucial role in building and donating this park to the City of Phoenix, entrusting us with the honor of preserving and protecting it. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the City and all of you for allowing us to serve you for the last 9 years. A big thanks goes out to all the volunteers, my family, and the patrons who were always there to support the park. Together, we worked tirelessly to keep this park thriving, and each year it grew with more events and an increasing number of attendees. We witnessed grassroots organizations flourish, had the opportunity to work with underprivileged kids and returning veterans suffering from PTSD. We also hosted various equine disciplines and groups for their events. The park became a place where Scouts earned their badges and convicts found meaningful work. Our impact spanned a wide and diverse spectrum.

The 9 years passed by in the blink of an eye, and we cannot express how wonderful and rewarding this experience has been for us. However, as of November 1st, a new management team will be taking over. It is now time for this wonderful place to embark on its next phase, and we are confident that the new management will guide it towards its full potential while treating both you and the park with the respect you deserve.

We would like to offer our gratitude to God, the City of Phoenix, the Arizona Horse Lovers Foundation, and all of you for creating some of the best memories of our lives. A special thank you goes out to Charlie, Maxine, Kenney, Lisa, Stephanie, Craig, Julie, Kim, Lynn, Sam, Bob, Terri, and all the other incredible volunteers who have been an integral part of this park throughout the years.

Always stay between the ears, and you will always find your center.
