Born into our family’s Arabian horse breeding business, I began showing saddleseat and western pleasure in the arabian world. This laid the foundation for my work with thoroughbred race horses, Friesians, warmbloods, Gypsies, and a variety of other breeds.
It has been a dream to work alongside my husband and compete with him. Together we make a great team that has been proven by our many successes in the show world.

“Starting young horses to ride and drive is my passion!”
I grew up around walking horses, then began going to Gail Peterson’s saddlebred/arabian barn after school. Later, continuing work with Arabians under the tutelage of Jeff Wonnell. Jeff, along with Barbara Cross, gave me my start in the Friesian world.
My professional handling career continued with Friesians and warmbloods. “I have been blessed with owners who believe in me and with talented horses that make me look good.” The opportunity to work with a variety of breeds over the years has greatly enhanced my skills. Working with my wife and children in our family business and showing off our hard work in the show ring, where we have accumulated numerous National titles in multiple disciplines, is a dream come true.
Hard work and determination combined with God’s blessing and family support have been the foundation of our successful training program. We strive every year to help each horse achieve their potential and every owner to live their dreams. As a family owned training facility we take pride in each and every aspect of our business. To make a living doing what you love...... is truly a Blessing from above.
