Learn a bit about the wonderful people that help keep the farm running at its best!
"I have been fortunate enough to have grown up and been involved in the equestrian community for 15+ years as horse owner, competitor, barn manager and now as a veterinary student. I grew up near Corning, NY where I went to school, took english riding lessons at Foxmoor Farm, cared for my own horses on our family farm, as well as competing in 4-H horse shows and local western speed events. I spent my first 5 years of working experience serving as a barn manager and stable hand for a wonderful woman in Big Flats, NY. These tasks included daily barn duties, helping with lessons, assisting during vet visits, working with western show horses, caring for broodmares, and raising foals. I also did several odds and ends type barn work at other equine facilities in that time. After graduating high school in 2019, I left home and began my college career as a pre-veterinary student at Penn State. In this time, I have very much desired to be back working with horses which is what led me to finding Shannon who so graciously welcomed me aboard her team working as an assistant barn manager here at Halfmoon Creek Farm."
"Halfmoon Creek Farm is a beautiful, well-kept farm with wonderful owners. The horses are extremely well behaved and easy to be around. The environment is very relaxed and peaceful. Walking into the barn always feels more like a getaway than work. I have been enjoying every moment spent on the farm."
