Stephanie Lilly - Owner, Trainer, Instructor
Stephanie founded the farm with her husband, Mike, in 2000. Together, they have developed the farm into a respectable training and teaching facility. Stephanie grew up riding and showing many breeds of horses, but she fell in love with the American Saddlebred. Stephanie specializes in the art of saddle seat equitation and focuses on the junior exhibitor rider. Her determination and ability to communicate riding skills to young riders is what makes her such a successful horsewoman.
Mike Lilly - Owner, Operator
Mike is the backbone of Fiesta Farm. From farm maintenance to hauling to shows, customers know their horses are always in the best hands with Mike. No matter how many hours he works at his full time job he always makes a point to check on the farm, horses, dogs, and cats each and every night. Fiesta wouldn't be the same without Mike.
Tina Newman - Trainer, Instructor
Tina grew up riding and showing alongside her sister, Stephanie. She continued into the amateur ranks until 2006 when she transitioned to an instructor and trainer at Fiesta.

No matter the day, Tina always has a smile and positive attitude and that is what makes her an excellent asset to our team.
