MEET THE TEAM
Mary’s love of horses began at a young age. She pestered her parents for years before they finally allowed riding lessons at age 12. Mary took weekly lessons at a local stable. In High School she worked part time cleaning stalls on weekends. After leasing a couple horses, she bought her first horse. A Tennessee Walker, Misty. Her daughter, Caroline is a rider as well and is active in the Battenkill Pony Club. Mary enjoys trail riding and jumping the occasional crossrail. This farm is a dream come true.
Mary is currently enrolled to achieve her Certified Barn Manager Certificate.
David began his equestrian pursuit a bit later in life. He started with his daughter Nicole taking Western lessons. After a few short years he bought his first horse Boon. Over a decade later David has continued to hone his skills as a rider and horsemanship. Living in Saratoga most his life, his love for horses runs deep. His Father, Jack, would take him the track as a kid and later they entered into a Syndicate together. This Farm is simply a lifetime in the making.
David is currently competing in Dressage, Jumpers and Eventing.
Nicole Cornell is currently a senior at Union College studying Environmental Policy and working towards her law degree. Her love for animals and the environment have led her to be the Farms Land Consultant. Nicole’s passion for sustainability, responsible farming, and water quality management make her a great addition to the team.
