Hi, my name is Darby. I was born on April 15, 1997. I am a bay QH/Appaloosa cross (although I have no spots and my dad is full of them). I joined the program in April 2014. My owners, the Frohnerath family, are letting me enjoy working with all the kids while I am teaching them new things as well.

Hi there! My name is Renegade. I am a registered Paint horse and very happy to have recently joined the program In 2022.

If a cowboy rode into town on Friday and stayed for 2 days and left on Friday.
How is that possible ?

That’s because my name is Friday!

I came to live at Friendship Glen on 2/25/12. I am an Arabian gelding and Snakey adopted me from Faith Equine Rescue in Lakeland, FL. We think I was born 2/28/99, but not 100% sure since there wasn’t any paperwork when I was adopted. I’ve come a long way working with all the 4Hers and them helping me build confidence.


Hi, my name is “Big Joe” because we already had a “Joey” in the barn when I arrived. I am a registered red roan quarter horse, and my birthdate is 6/2/2010.

Hi, my name is Socks. I joined the team in the spring of 2017. Like some other team members, I came from Faith Equine Rescue and I am happy to find such a loving home. I was born in 2011 but since no paperwork came with me we aren’t exactly sure what my birthday is so we just celebrate it on January 1st!. I am a beautiful lover chestnut color with lots of chrome.


I am happily supported in part by the Tampa Bay Rays Foundation


I just joined the team on 3/20/22 for a trial run.  I am really hoping it works out and this becomes my forever home. Jane Whitehurst adopted me from the Horse Protection Association of Florida and trained me for a few years and built up my confidence. She now thinks I am ready to work in the program. Jane isn’t sure what my breeding is but we’re pretty sure I have Morgan and/or Arabian in my blood.



My name is Dexter. I was born on February 1, 1999. I am a buckskin gelding, grade QH cross. I am no longer used in the program because I have become a grumpy old man as I’ve gotten older. But I still get groomed and taken real good care of.


Hi there! My name is Gayland. I am cousins with Friday and was adopted by Anna from Faith Equine Rescue in February 2012, just a few weeks before Snakey adopted Friday.  I did basic training with Anna and moved up here on 12/28/12 to work in the program at Friendship Glen. Anna gave me to Emily in January 2020, and she owned me the rest of my time here on earth. 

I was born 2/14/02, a purebred Arabian and very outgoing.

My name is Joey and I was born in 1994. I am half Paso Fino, half quarter horse, so I’ve been told I have a smooth 4-beat gait. I have been trained with verbal commands, including “whoa” and “walk on.” I will do almost anything for a cookie.


Joey  RIP (1994-Oct. 2022)
