Meet The Team - Morgan Bailey
When most people say “oh I’ve been riding since I could sit up” they tend to be exaggerating a bit, but I promise you that’s not the case with me! Both my parents are avid riders, so they got me in the saddle basically the moment after I was born! There may have been some velcro overalls involved in the beginning, and ever since then, horses have always been a huge part of my life.
I like to say I bring some variety to The Farm House… while most of the staff grew up in the hunter/jumper world, I grew up on the western side of things. My first horse, JB, showed me a love for rodeos, and I started barrel racing at two years old (hence the velcro overalls)! JB was the best teacher (he was even awarded “Horse with Most Heart in NC” in 2008), and soon I moved up to Little Girl, who held my heart for most of my childhood. My proudest moment growing up was placing 13th overall with Little Girl at the National Barrel Horse Association World Championship when I was eight years old!
Nowadays, I’m gearing up to start nursing school in a few weeks (wish me luck!!) and still trying to find the time to rodeo and enjoy my horses- Honey, Turtle, and Fizzle! I bred Honey myself, so have some high hopes for her! My goal is to give her more experience in the barrels and breakaway team roping and eventually compete with her in both the Southern Rodeo Association and International Professional Rodeo Association!
I’ve been working at The Farm House for three years and have loved every minute! I enjoy helping other riders find exactly what they’re looking for! My favorite products are Ultra Shield Ex Fly Spray and the whole Back on Track line. My horses LOVE their BOT sheets and wraps because they make them feel 110% before competitions. Feel free to come visit. I can’t wait to help!
Flies are not just a nuisance for your horse — because they can carry disease, they’re a hazard as well. But how many times have you tried a horse fly spray that didn’t live up to the hype? As enthusiastic equestrians ourselves, we’ve had the same experience! We’ve tested dozens of sprays to find the ones [...]
A horse bridle is an important piece of equipment since the rider uses it to communicate with their horse while riding. Just like with most other horse-riding tack, there are many options to choose from depending on the type of riding you are doing and if you are competing with your horse. In this post, [...]
It’s an age-old question that has plagued equestrians since the dawn of time. Just how do hunter/jumper riders get their hair up under their helmets like that??It may seem like a trivial aspect of turnout that doesn’t matter too much, but if you grew up with a conservative trainer who would immediately notice if you [...]
Summer is undoubtedly one of the best times of year for equestrians. No school, long sunny days, and of course… Horse shows!! But with all the fun, brings some seriously hot weather! I don’t know about y’all, but I do not handle the summer heat too well… aka I’m currently nursing a horrendous sunburn even [...]
Have you ever walked into a tack store needing a new pair of breeches… or a show coat… and just been completely overwhelmed? Like what the heck do those size terms even mean? US, IT, GP, 6, 10, 42, 36, 28, 44?Basically, gibberish to anyone who doesn’t spend all day looking at these clothes and [...]
The equestrian industry is a unique community in the fact that it is chock full of successful businesswomen. In a world where top business executives are dominated by men, it is so refreshing to see these women take an idea, create a plan, [...]
Meet The Team - Lisa ClementsIt all started in 1975 when my mom asked if I would rather have a bike or a pony… needless to say, I chose a pony, and for Christmas that year, guess what was waiting for me with the quintessential big red bow! Shadow was the best first pony - [...]
We are incredibly excited to introduce a brand new line to our Farm House repertoire this spring… we are proud to now be offering Animo to all of you! The second those boxes from Italy arrived, we have been bouncing off the walls waiting to debut these fabulous clothes to [...]
There's nothing prettier than a clean grey horse, right? Most of you already know I do a little bit of horse breeding for my personal competition horses. It all began with Ladybug my ‘89 model grey Thoroughbred, who loves to be filthy. Grey being a dominant gene, Ladybug blessed me with 3 more grey horses. [...]
