New Happenings at Hallston Manor

Hallston Manor is pleased to announce that they have appointed Libby McLemore as their trainer. Libby is a life-long horsewoman and is up for the challenge of getting colts ready for show season. Libby’s family owned Apple Flat Farm in Charlotte, N.C. and she grew up breeding and showing top Morgans. She left North Carolina for Kentucky in 1998, and went to work for Dave Becker, Barry Stumbo, and then Carter Cox. After working many of young colts at Carter Cox’s farm, she went to work for Melissa Moore and then worked in conjunction with Edward “Hoppy” Bennett on several colts. She was working horses for Hoppy, The Rowlands, and one for the Halls in Kentucky before agreeing to join the Hallston Manor team. This past year, Libby won the Three-Year-Old Five-Gaited class in Kansas City on Callaway’s Confidential. The Rowlands purchased him shortly after the class for their family, and then put him in training with Libby.

Hallston Manor would like to thank Audrey, John and Trina Pade for purchasing MacDonald Dixon. “Macadoo” is now in training at Lukens Stables and Audrey will be showing him this season. Hallston Manor wishes them the best of luck and have fun.

Hallston Manor would like to congratulate Kevin Tomasko of N.H. on the purchase of: Oh Just Dheir Me!, Elusive Love Affheir, and He Is The Heir. All three will remain in training at Phoenix Stables.

Hallston Manor welcomes visitors anytime to see their wonderful prospects. They are looking forward to an exciting show season with their new talented trainer and horses.
