Theory to practice

Self-Directed Learning


Formal Learning comes from my degrees obtained in Higher Education a Masters of Management and a Masters in Agriculture Science, provides knowledge in business and  leadership along with agriculture science for successful operations.

Informal learning for the farm comes from networking with industry experts as well as working with the Oldenburg-GOV and Hanoverian Registries; where mares are inspected for breeding approvals and foals are inspected for registration. Every mare and foal on the farm goes every year to an inspection at Tryon International Equestrian Center. These events are open to the public as "teaching events" for students at Isothermal Community College as well as for the community residents.
