The story of my farm is not typical which should give hope to horse lovers young and old.

At the age of eleven, I fell in love with horses and wanted one of my own. I was given riding lessons as a birthday gift instead. I fell even more in love with riding, with horses, and with anything to do with horses. My parents were not wealthy, were not horse people and I had five brothers and sisters. Owning a horse as a child was a dream, but never a reality. I spent every Saturday at the barn learning all that I could, in the rain, in the sun, and in the freezing cold. Then at 19 I went off to college, graduated, moved to California, got married, and had a son. For 7 years I did very little with horses. At the age of 26, I returned to riding and was offered a summer job teaching beginners at Endolane Farm in Little Compton, RI. As a single mother and a Special Education teacher during the school year, I needed to work year round to make ends meet. This seemingly small opportunity combined my passion for teaching with my passion for horses and began what was to be my life’s journey.
