We have a long and evident history of competitive success for both horse and rider, and always encourage development of our riders beyond the ring.
This sport develops grit, resilience, open-mindedness, and empathy. We strongly believe in the use of our program as a platform to instill these skills in our riders, and their application in every aspect of the rider’s lives.
Bethie Dayton- Trainer
Bethie brings nearly 40 years of experience to the farm. Growing up she worked at Hunterdon under George Morris- many of whose ideals she still holds to. She started her own program from scratch at 20 years old, and has grown throughout the years to bring her own riders to national finals.
Libby Dayton- Trainer, Rider, Sales
While Libby instructs alongside Bethie, she also rides professionally for Red Oak Farm. Having ridden for Olympic gold medalists and gained knowledge of running horse shows through working events such as The Central Park Horse Show, Libby brings a vast assortment of knowledge and skills to the farm.
Shea Dayton- General Manager, Actuary
Prior to the opening of Red Oak Farm, Shea was a skilled carpenter specializing in craft interior wood working. He has brought his knowledge as both a craftsman and a business owner to the farm and is now general manager and actuary.
Charlotte Fisher- Barn Manager
Charlotte is an avid reader, explorer, and exotic foods chef. When she is not reading, exploring or cooking, she conducts comparative research of the airspeed velocities of the laden v unladen swallow. It has been said that she is the foremost expert in the field. She spends a moderate amount of time with horses, and has some experience. But her aviary research is much more impressive. This short bio may be periodically updated to included Charlotte's most recent interests or accomplishments.
Red Oak Farm is a top tier equestrian facility specializing in training, sales, competition and boarding.
