About DD Mini Farm

Hi Everyone.  I just wanted to let you know a bit about DD Mini Farm.  I moved onto the property in December 2003 with my horse.  His name is Cupid, and he was three years old.  He is a Quarter Horse, and I was in the process of training him to be ridden.  I boarded a couple of horses to help pay the bills and met a great friend.  She kept her horse here for about a year.  Eventually, she purchased property to have her horse at home.  I have also made other great friends from having them keep their horses here.

In 2007 I was dating my now-husband, John.  He supported my decision to stop working outside and stay home with my horse boarding and riding lesson business.  In 2009 I acquired a few horses that could be ridden from a good friend and started having Summer Camps and riding lessons full time.

Also, in 2009, I acquired my first miniature horse.  As boarded horses left, my husband and I purchased more miniature horses.  Eventually, we got to the point of not having room for boarded horses.  I taught riding lessons and provided a horse summer camp for kids for several years.  Eventually, I had to return to work, so I chose a job to work from home and still be here for the horses during the day.

All visits are by appointment only.  Please do not just show up.  This is our home.  Sometimes we may be out running errands.  

Over the past few years, I’ve been breeding and showing Miniature horses.  I’ve enjoyed traveling for the shows, meeting new people, and showing my horses.
