Cathy was a horseless horse-loving city kid. Then during
her junior year in high school she wore her parents down and they
consented to the purchase of “Celestial Messenger.”
"Celeste" was an experienced event
horse that taught Cathy that horses are fragile creatures that require
a delicate balance of love, knowledge and tenacity. While Cathy
went to Notre Dame to earn her Bachelors in History and Political
Science, Celeste stayed home to have a baby.
Following graduation Cathy signed on with a
Fortune 500 company, and started her Master’s in Business
Administration at Bentley College.
Between working and attending graduate school
part time, Cathy continued to event a variety of horses (Jim Beam,
Buster Brown, Rocky Raccoon, Jesters Jig, and Belle Jette) through
preliminary and showed dressage through fourth level with Fiona,
Home James and Maurico.
In 1988 Cathy organized Sporthorse Investors
Limited Partnership and the company bought Maurico, an own son of
Marlon, a Foundation sire in the Holsteiner Verband.
In 1989, after completing USDF Instructor certification
and being ranked nationally in the top ten, Cathy turned her attention
full time to the success of Twin Pine Farm.
Cathy teaches all the dressage, hunt seat and
jumping lessons at Twin Pine Farm. email
