Meet Our Family

Meet the Owners:  Steve & Lori and the Story Behind Dream On Farms.

Like all little girls, Lori dreamed of owning her own horse one day. Her dream began with a painting that her great aunt painted of three beautiful black horses running in a storm. This painting hung in her grandmother's house and Lori would often tell her family she would have a beautiful, big black horse someday.  As a teenager, she became fascinated with the history and beauty of the Friesian horse.  As an adult, her husband Steve encouraged her to take riding lessons and pursue her dream.  After just a few lessons they decided to add a Friesian Horse named Mykka to their family. The decision was not without many challenges. Mykka and Lori were both very green.  In the equine world there is a saying, “green plus green equals black and blue”. After realizing they might have gotten in over their heads, Steve and Lori turned to Natural Horsemanship to help them learn how to think and communicate with horses. As their bond with Mykka blossomed, Steve’s dream was evolving. He dreamed of one day having his own place where he could enjoy Mykka and watch his daughter and wife enjoy him too.  When Dream on Farms became available, he knew this was the place his family was meant to be.  Now they enjoy watching Mykka, the horse that taught them so much, enjoy being a horse.

 

They also enjoy watching their daughter develop into a talented rider and sharpen her ability to communicate with these magnificent creatures. After achieving countless goals with Mykka,  Kayda now owns three of her own horses.  Draco-her current dressage partner,  Wimer-her future dressage prospect  and  Forest-a mini she rescued that quickly became her  partner in crime.   The family's passion and love of horses is now the foundation for this amazing equine facility
