Anne Judd Hired as Trainer at Tatars' Lawson Creek Farm

The Tatar Family of El Cajon, CA has hired Anne Judd as head trainer and manager of their new farm Lawson Creek Farm, now under construction in Jamul, CA near San Diego. Anne has closed her Zebra LTD show barn in Dade City FL and moved to CA to take direction of the talented Lila Tatar and introduce the entire family (Osman, Lillian and Zachary) to the world of show horses.

The Tatars currently own a top string of Morgans including the Reserve Jr. Exhibitor English Pleasure horse Rocket Man as well as quite a few other top Morgan contenders. Lila is very interested in the equitation world so has been lucky enough to add her first Saddlebred, Heir's Encore, to their string of show horses. She will not only compete in Saddlebred equitation on Encore, but will compete on her Morgan mare LGH Destiny's Treasure in Morgan equitation.

Anne's top assistant Jenna Domanico, a Florida native, has made the move to CA also and her presence will help keep the new farm rolling in a positive direction.

Lawson Creek Farm is named after its geographic locale. It is located on 42 acres in a breathtaking valley surrounded by the Coastal Mountains inland from San Diego Bay. It seems to be a world unto itself until one tops the mountain and sees in the distance the breathtaking vista of San Diego and Coronado Island. The barn planning is in its earliest stages, but the farm carries on from a nearby temporary location. Anne and Jenna will be living on the new farm so that they can keep a keen eye on the new construction on a daily basis.

The new team, of Judd and Domanico, combines expertise and credibility with talent and youthful exuberance! The team looks forward to guiding the Tatar Family into the business so they can grace our industry for years to come. At this point the best contact is on Anne's cell phone at 813-731-6538 or by mail at 3131 Rudnick Drive, Jamul, CA 91935. A temporary farm number will be published soon.
