Meet the Humans and the Horses
Gypsy Farms was established in 2012, after Sara moved here from Maryland. Upon arriving in Texas and finding a wonderful little farmette, Sara focused her extra time on helping horses in need. She found a love for rescuing, rehabilitating, training and rehoming horses. Sara has over 20 years of riding experience, and four years of experience as a riding instructor. Sara currently rides on the Rough Riders Drill team for Tejas Rodeo Company and can be seen on a Saturday night at the Rodeo between March and November. Her love for horses has been a lifelong passion, and being able to share her knowledge and expose others to such amazing creatures has been a lifelong goal.
We are super excited to welcome Jessica Camacho to the instructor team! Jessica has over 17 years in giving riding lessons and training horses. She can teach western and english. She has experience in Dressage and Hunter Jumper as well!
Please also welcome Tori Verboom! She owns Tribal C Performance Horses and has a wealth of knowledge in training show horses, problem horses, and giving western and english lessons.
Meet Our Horses
Gypsy: Gypsy is our entry-level horse, but please don’t mistake that for a lazy old lesson horse. She is my drill team horse at Texas rodeo and is a young 12 years old. She rides western and english, she does entry-level barrel racing and jumping. Most students will walk and trot on Gypsy, more advanced students are allowed to canter on her.
Smokey: Smokey is a professional barrel racing horse. New riders can move up to ride smokey once they have demonstrated basic skills and control on Gypsy. Most students will walk and trot on Smokey, more advanced students are allowed to canter on him.
Holly: Holly is a purebred Quarterhorse palomino in color. She has experience in Western Pleasure and Reining. She is not an entry-level horse and only intermediate riders will be allowed to ride her. .
Remy: Remy is a purebred solid color paint horse who is ridden in both english and western. He is an entry level horse. He does entry and intermediate level barrel racing, most students will walk and trot on Remy, more advanced riders will be allowed to canter on him. He is not used for jumping at this time, but hopefully soon he will be airborne.
