About Us

Horses have always been a part of the lives of Kim and Lisa. Growing up in Upstate New York, Kim rode horses as a child. Years later, when Lisa wanted to start taking lessons at age 7, horses made their way back into their lives for good.

 

Lisa began taking lessons from Chris VanGee in Phelps, Ny. It was during those first few years that they made their first purchase, one that would change their lives forever. A sorrel Quarter Horse gelding by the name of Imperial Barons Lad became part of the family. Lisa began showing "Laddy" on the Wayne-Monroe Horseman's Council circuit, racking up ribbons and championships all over the region.

 

In 1995, the family bought the farm on Old Mill Road and began the long process of turning the property into the gorgeous nest that it is today. When they first bought it, there were a few makeshift stalls and a turn out, but with some elbow grease and a lot of love, their dream came true in the form first of a 7 stall barn, then it expanded to a 17 stall barn with a 100'x60' indoor arena. Next came the 200'x100' outdoor arena, more turnouts, and eventually some run-in sheds were built as well.

 

Another purchase was made, and this time in the form of a sorrel Quarter Horse mare named DA Poco Luck. Lisa began riding with local AQHA Professional, Danny Bergstresser and JD Performance Horses and the team was seemingly unstoppable, even making appearences at the American Quarter Horse Youth World Championship show in Fort Worth, Texas; and the All American Quarter Horse Congress in Columbus, Ohio on the Youth team, where the pair placed 8th in halter and made the finals in other western events.

 

Lisa then turned her sights on college, attending SUNY Morrisville and earning an Associates degree in their Equine program, as well as competing on their western team.

 

Kim turned the barn into the boarding facility it is today, offering top-notch care and attention to anyone who wishes to board and ride there. During the summer, the farm hosts WMHC shows, and is currently looking into starting weekly playdays.

 

Lisa and Kim give lessons weekly. Lisa also coaches the Hobart William Smith Equestrian Western Club  and is the leader of an Ontario County 4-H group. They participate with their students in hunter paces, obstacle challenges, breed association, open and 4-H shows, and also help out the local animal rescue outfits by taking in 'project' horses and adopting rescue dogs and cats.
