So you've learned a little about our little farm, now you'll get to meet the family who loves it.

 Scott - Owns our family rental business: Parties Made Simple.  If you want to host a party but don't want to be the entertainment or do the cooking, give us a call. We have tents, tables, portable toilets and inflatable toys along with cotton candy machines, soft serve ice cream machines, etc.  You can check out the business at
Scott doesn't do a lot of riding, he's our forever groom, supporting fan and chauffeur. Couldn't make it through all our shows/fairs/expos/parades without his help!

 Terri - Works at the Mayo Clinic. Besides working and raising 3 girls, Terri has 'survived' the tough job of keeping Scott in line since 1984!  Terri started into mules when a family friend told her she was showing this white mule for him.  Then, she made the mistake of leaving her mare at the farm, who happened to be in heat. Low and behold the next year, she received her first mule, who we still have to this day.  Terri shows alongside her 3 daughters.

 Mary - Graduated with a Bachelor in Equine Science, then was assistant trainer at Conway Arabians for 2 1/2 years.  Mary is currently working at a small animal veterinary clinic.  She also trains horses, mules & donkeys from home.  Mary has been training since she was about 11 years old, with a large thanks to the 4-H Horse Training Project.  She and her training projects have been very successful in the show pen!  Mary's husband, Brandon, now has his first mule and looks forward to showing her.

 Jennifer -  Jennifer enjoys helping around the farm, trail riding and the occasional show.  Jennifer's husband, Ben, has been bitten by the equine bug and joins us frequently.  Jennifer and Ben currently live several hours from the farm, so don't ride as often as they would like.  They hope to have equine at their own home soon.

 Alyson - Alyson currently attends SDSU in Brookings, SD, majoring in Natural Resource Law Enforcement.  She is following the 'mule trainer' footsteps, training her Appaloosa mule 'Tipsy' along with a variety of our other young mules & donkeys. Alyson stays very busy helping on the farm, with Parties Made Simple and pursuing a career in the Environment!
