PlayMor is a family-owned and operated establishment. Established in 1982 by Bill and Sammi Hazen, PlayMor became a private breeding farm in 2005, when family members Jacqueline Clapp and Catherine Hazen joined Bill and Sammi in purchasing a 97-acre farm in Lexington. In addition to the top-notch breeding and training facilities, PlayMor also houses an on-site clinic that specializes in illness and injury recovery.
