Situated on nearly 30 peaceful acres two miles west of The World Equestrian Center you will find Luxus Retired Equine Care. Inspired to life by its owners, Dr. Arno and Lynn Loeffler, and family equestrians Brian and Rene Hollis, Luxus offers a very different approach from others with, essentially, all-inclusive care that focuses on mind, body, and soul. Hoof trims are even included! There is no a la carte menu of extra charges so it’s a very simple and easy experience for boarder owners. The care is tailored to individual needs on a daily basis with loving hands, compassionate hearts, and uncompromising standards.
“It’s so cliche to say we couldn’t find the care we were looking for so we started our own, but it’s true,” said Lynn. “No matter where or how much we paid for ‘top-notch’ care, they were still one-size-fits-all boarding programs that didn’t meet the individual needs/wants of our horses, and we never achieved the peace of mind we were looking for. Luxus is redefining extraordinary retirement care to offer that peace of mind for discerning owners who want nothing but the best for their equine friends.”
Luxus understands no two horses are alike and that’s where everything begins. The detailed care is provided strictly by the owners/family. They are supported by a team of top-notch equestrian professionals, and boarders may choose the ones with whom they wish to work.
Monthly weights and vitals are taken, then scale-weighed feed with feed-thru fly control and lab tested and analyzed hay is provided. Numerous enrichment activities keep horses engaged and happy. They even practice trailer loading so no one forgets! The included services, enrichment activities, amenities, and high quality products seem never-ending.
Everything is new and designed for safety, comfort, and convenience. All horses have a stall and pasture, and the concrete barn has a sprinkler system. There’s even a solar power system, so no one is ever without water or electric. Did we mention the pasture shelters have fans? Still ride your horse? No problem! There’s a new nylon footed arena to use. They’ll even tack/untack your horse. In addition to the secured, 24-hour surveilled property, there is the boarder’s favorite—cameras they can log onto to view their horses anytime and from anywhere. “We also offer 18’x75’ paved, full hook-up RV sites for out-of-town visits,” adds Arno.
Equine Director Rene Hollis says, “There’s no greater compliment than repeat clients.” One such client is Susan Kang, who retired her Selle Francais mare at Luxus and is now flying in another of her retired warmbloods from California this month to join her mare. “It is hard separating from your horse that has been your partner for so many years and walk away when it’s time for their retirement. It’s like sending your child off to college. It has to be the right fit! I have absolutely found the most amazing boutique retirement facility in Ocala—Luxus Retired Equine Care! I love it so much that I am flying my 23-year-old horse from California, so my two furry loves can be together again and have the most amazing retirement they deserve. Rene and Lynn are what make Luxus amazing!”
