Spirit Acres Farm Equine Rescue & Sanctuary is located in Montgomery, Texas. Our resident population of 50 horses plus, includes all breeds and ages.

Among those active in organizing the association then were Mrs. Diane Schwartzberg, Mr. and Mrs. John Vance, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Smathers, Mr. and Mrs. Willis Flick and Ms. Liz Langford.

The primary purposes of the Florida Association are to promote the Arabian horse in the state, to maintain the annual high point awards and futurity programs and to encourage shows throughout the state.
