Mary and Kevin started Ravenwood Farm in 1980. Kevin bred and raised Heartstrings, who after being sold to Don Stewart, was Green Conformation Champion of the country. Don purchased another of Mary & Kevin’s horse; Case in Point and took him to Champion of the country in the 2nd year Green division. Kevin and Mary also owned the famous Enticement and campaigned her to Champion of the country in the 1st year Green division, and overall Green Working Champion in 1993.
Since then, they purchased the farm and continue their winning ways with their clients! The Ravenwood Farm banner never has a shortage of blue ribbons, and Team Rave is winning from the walk-trot poles to the Open Jumpers! Gradual additions to the Ravenwood Professional Staff over the years include Assistant Trainers Tammy Walsh, Shannon Dickinson, and Lauren Wilkins. Clients at Ravenwood have the unique opportunity of being able to train with TOP level industry professionals no matter what their goals!

Top Horses LLC
As horse owners, I’m sure we have all traveled hundreds of miles to view a horse, only to find something totally different presented on arrival. When we finally find our dream horse, we spend money on a vetting only to discover it can’t pass and the five people prior to you had vetted the same horse with the same result! The careful showjumper seen on the video ballooning every fence up in the wings, within four weeks is clouting poles and couldn’t care less, and the most perfectly behaved horse that passed all your trial tests, once home chronically naps and morphs into something psychotic – all because the seller wasn’t open and honest with you. You are left deflated, out of pocket and with an unsuitable horse you wish you’d never bought. If this is you then you are not alone, and this is why Top Horses LLC sold in the first year of business 40 horses most destined for top level sport; Grand Prix showjumping or Advanced eventing, and in the first year we have achieved this almost entirely from recommendations and repeat buying clients.
