Learn a bit about the wonderful people that help keep the farm running at its best!
Former Assistant Barn Manager
"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."
Cheyenne spent two wonderful years at Halfmoon Creek, and is now onto her next adventure: applying to vet school! We wish her all the very best & are so grateful to have had her on the farm!
Here's what Cheyenne had to say following her time on the farm:
"Having worked here for 2 years and boarded my horse at the farm as well, I cannot recommend this amazing facility and exceptional people enough! I am so blessed to have crossed paths and become a part of the Halfmoon Creek Farm barn family The owners, Shannon & Cody, and the boarders are all so welcoming and easy to get along with. You'd be hard pressed to find a better facility and atmosphere to be a part of!
Throughout my time here, I felt loved and appreciated, and was always treated as such. There have been countless times I have received cards, gifts and words of encouragement by all.
Shannon is an absolute delight and treats her staff as friends, rather than her employee, while still maintaining top tier professionalism. She is also incredibly gifted in her ability to teach and share her hard earned knowledge in a positive manner during lessons and day-to-day conversations. Her kind, supportive and realistic approach to life, horses, and business is what sets her and her facility apart from the rest."
