Saintly Samurai

This sweet boy is truly one of a kind! He has made so much progress in the short month he has been at Wellspring with us. Watching and feeling him learn and improve while riding is very special. He is one of the sweetest horses I have ever dealt with and ridden, always eager to […]


Ascend is in early re-training as a cross country fox hunter.  He is boarded at Stockplace Farm where he lives with fellow graded stakes winners and hunt horses; Tower of Texas, Ole Faunty, Rahystarda, and Sticksstatleydude.  Since arriving I have ridden Ascend daily cross country at the farm, have shipped to Masterson Station and Shaker Village to […]

Little Johnny Jones

I’d known about Johnny for a while because of working at Stone Farm. He came to the barn where I boarded my other horse for some under saddle training and during that time he and my other horse became best friends. So when my husband and I finally got our own farm I knew I […]


Strike came to me about a year ago, he and I went through all the groundwork to start to build a solid foundation.  I ended up pairing him with a young 15-year-old girl. They have been a perfect match.  Strike, with his patience and willingness to learn, has given this rider an opportunity of a […]

Ranger Up

Ranger has been in light work (2-3 rides per week & groundwork 1-2 xs) He has been extremely pleasant and easy in every way. Looking to take him for an off-property outing soon. We have been accepted for the TB makeover & plan to compete in eventing. He’s already done some ground poles and trotted […]


I originally planned to come up with a new barn name for Noonsight, but Noon just stuck so that’s what I call him. It’s so nice to hear that his connections care so much about his life after racing! I met Noonsight, aka Noon, at the Secretariat Center in Lexington in December of 2020 and […]

Sound Effect

It’s kind of comical how I came to adopt Sound Effect.  I had my eye on a different horse, Cobra Kai, and sent my application in to adopt him from New Vocations.  I was approved to adopt.  About the time of my approval, Sound Effect came in.  My plan for one OTTB went out the […]


Swordsman is one of the sweetest horses.  My barn name for him is Happy as he makes me happy with his loving demeanor. He loves his goodies!  My kids say I have him so spoiled.  He doesn’t have a mean bone in him.  He is pleasant to work with!  Under saddle his movement is amazing!  […]


Census, a half brother to Gr. 2 Miss Grillo S. winner PLUM ALI, was given a year of R&R after a career ending condylar fracture.  He is ready to find his new home! Due to his injury, he is best suited for light use as a pleasure horse. Currently, he is turned out on the […]


My name is Pernicious – a funny name – it means “having a harmful effect, especially in a gradual or subtle way” which is not who I am! I am 11 years old, began my racing career as a 3 year old and finished my racing career as a 7 year old. After racing ended […]
