Welcome to Tim Trott’s FLA HORSE

We started this thing back in the 1990’s as when we started our web design and hosting company, and acquired the domain name in October of 1997.

We (Tim and Marianne Trott) were on a camp-out and ride with a group that is now the Florida Trail Blazers with our first two horses, when some members of that group suggested it might be nice to have a place on the Internet to post their trail maps. Since I was already involved in doing things with a web server that a friend had set up, I decided to build a web site for the benefit of all Florida trail riders in Florida. The maps are gone now, and so are the classified ads along with the bulletin board (a victim of Facebook) but the original idea remains. As times change, we continue to change as well, with a new beginning in 2019.

From the early beginnings, we’ve been assisted and encouraged by many people in the Florida horse community and beyond. To the those who made that first suggestion at a camp out and to the many others who have contributed the news articles, information, assistance, photos and more, we would like to say a great big “thank you”.

We have had as many as five horses at one time. Cotton, the first and the last, was killed by lightning in June of 2005 near our home in Marianna.

I sincerely hope you enjoy this web site that continues to be inspired by “TC”, my first and last horse. This web site is dedicated to horses in Florida.

Tim Trott
