Experience, Dedication and Passion Caring for Retired Horses

“Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.”

~ Andrew Carnegie

With over 75 years of combined equine experience, the principals of Southern Paradise Horse Retirement possess the knowledge and dedication necessary to ensure their retired equine residents experience the paradise they deserve. The members of the LLC are Neal Bass, Nate Bass and Bo Ingram, an experienced horseman and trainer of Tennessee Walking Horses for pleasure and trail. Each of the three owners occupy various residences within the farm and routinely check on the horses throughout the day.

Also living on-site is Dr. McDougal from Pulaski, TN, founder and owner of Tennessee Veterinary Reproductive Services; a mobile large animal veterinary service known throughout middle Tennessee and northern Alabama. Dr. McDougal attended UT Martin to obtain her Bachelor of Science and Animal Science and graduated in 2010. She then attended Mississippi State College of Veterinary Medicine where she graduated in 2014. While there she focused on large animal medicine with an emphasis on equine reproduction. Dr. McDougal offers annual vaccinations, Coggins testing, and emergency care to the residents of Southern Paradise Horse Retirement.

Our families have always enjoyed horseback riding and keep 5 to 10 trail horses on the farm for personal pleasure riding. The realization of how unique our farm is in both size and atmosphere, began the discussion that our love for horses could blossom into an enjoyable way of life on the farm by sharing it with retired horses… and Southern Paradise Horse Retirement was born.
