Passionate about horse care, Michele & Steve Mayer found their niche in the horse world in the shape and form of horse retirement, rest and rejuvenation for performance horses and by giving young and growing horses a place to roam before they start their career.

Our experienced team believes in considering the "whole horse" to form a program tailored to each individual horse's needs so that he or she can thrive no matter what life stage they are in.

Although each horse might not be performing at their intended level, our philosophy is that they are entitled to life long care and the best quality of life.

After decades of being part of the equestrian community,
we knew it was time to create a peaceful sanctuary for horses.

"This private family owned farm is just stunning! Has all the big farm perks with the warm family atmosphere! The care is fantastic. I thank them for all they do to keep my oldies happy when they can’t travel and work like they used to but still enjoy the good life!!!" -K

"My Horse and I love Next Level. He’s as happy as he’s ever been. They have a great attention to detail involving each horse’s care. They focus on each horse individually. This place is wonderful whether your horse is a top level show horse taking a rest or needing a place to retire.
It’s also within hacking distance to HITS."
