O'Gorman Stables at Cherrydale Manor Opens

On January 1, 2003, the doors opened at O'Gorman Stables at Cherrydale Manor in New Wilmington, Pennsylvania. Owners Robin and Neil Herrick together with manager/trainers Shirley and Tim O'Gorman are pleased to welcome visitors to the sparkling new facility which features an 18 stall show barn with a 260' indoor arena.

The farm also has a 13 stall broodmare barn with attached paddocks.

O'Gorman Stables at Cherrydale Manor is a Morgan training facility which is accepting outside horses for training and offers show horses and youngsters for sale. The facility is located in New Wilmington in northwestern Pennsylvania. It is conveniently located near airports in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Youngstown, Ohio. It is easily accessible off of Interstate 80 and Route 18.

Cherrydale Manor owners Robin and Neil Herrick are longtime Morgan enthusiasts and breeders who have enjoyed seeing their WRA Regal Empress, Cherrydale Magdalene, Cherrydale Acappella and others rise to prominence. Their friendship and association with Tim and Shirley O'Gorman resulted in them joining forces in this new facility.

Both Tim and Shirley O'Gorman have been training Morgans for nearly 30 years. They started out by working at such industry leaders as Carousel Stables, Whitney Stables and George Knight. In addition to running O'Gorman Stables previously in Ohio, Tim and Shirley were also the manager/trainers at Meadowland Farm in Mesquite, Nevada and also worked for Kohler Stables in LaGrange, Kentucky.

Among the list of Morgan notables that Tim and Shirley O'Gorman have trained and shown are Steppin Jessica, KEW Glory to Glory, Fox Creek Samantha, KEW Majestic Heart, Sharp Shooter, Marin City Lights, MLF Diamond Lil, MLF Caliente, WRA Regal Empress, and Lookaway's I Command. The 2003 O'Gorman Stables show string will include a promising group of youngsters as well as Cherrydale Acappella, Cherrydale Gabriella and Lookaways Fantasy who have all earned previous championships under the direction of Tim and Shirley O'Gorman.
