Planning for 2014

We hope you all have a very Merry Christmas. We certainly did here at EZ 2 Spot Ranch. Now it is time to look ahead as the New Year is rapidly approaching. We are excited about 2014 and expect it to be an amazing year. We are gathering horses now for January quarantine groups to Dammam (Saudi Arabia), Doha (Qatar), Luxembourg (Luxembourg) and Amsterdam (Netherlands). Spaces are currently available in each group and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Let us know if you have horses for any of these destinations and we will be happy to reserve the spaces for you.
