If you ever find yourself near Tampa, Florida, or if you happen to be a lover of both horses and beautiful landscapes, West Coast Morgans in the Odessa/Keystone area is a must-see!
Late last year I had the opportunity to visit the wonderful West Coast Morgans facility and was greeted with friendly smiles all around. Although I'm not a horseback rider myself, I am a horse admirer, so I was in for a treat. And not only did I get to meet several beautiful horses, but I also took my first real horseback riding lesson from Owner, Trainer, and Operator, Anne Winograd. (Thankfully, with her incredible instruction, I did not fall off. Guess the world champion horse took it easy on me!)
The barn is kept in immaculate condition, and there are many dedicated employees steadily moving about to keep the barn tidy and the horses well cared for at all times.
Anne has been a lover of horses and a respected and decorated rider since she was a young girl. She is a certified Veterinary technician and certified in equine massage therapy. She has used her passion for horses and her hard work ethic to help young equine enthusiasts achieve their riding dreams. Anne loves each and every day and puts everything she has into her work. She thoroughly enjoys introducing people to horses and building upon the bond between horses and humans. Her no-nonsense approach is a breath of fresh air and is especially exciting in a world where some might feel equine enthusiasts carry a haughty air about them. Only cool breezes at West Coast Morgans—they only have room for happy people and happy horses!!
This is a facility where visitors are truly welcomed and appreciated!
