Our Staff

We are very fortunate to have an excellent staff of people working for us.  Having good people you can trust and always count on to do whatever is needed is important in any business, but particularly in a business that involves horses.  The hours are long, the work is often hot and dirty, and occasionally you might get nipped, stepped on or kicked.  To do this job, someone has to love it and be really dedicated.  My wonderful breeding/foaling/farm management staff, Alissa (Ali) and Maurissa, as well as our hard working barn maintenance staff Russell and Bennett are the best!  I truly could not function without them!

At First Flight Farm, we specialize in breeding, foaling and working with very young horses.  Ali, Maurissa and I work with the babies from birth to starting them under saddle, but once under saddle, they need more advanced training and showing that we simply do not have the time to provide them.  

We are extremely fortunate to have the excellent professional trainer/show riders Eva Oldenbroek and Joshua Tabor working with us.  Eva trains and shows our dressage horses and Joshua trains and shows our jumper horses.

While I (First Flight Farm owner, Tricia Veley) do almost all of the ultrasound scanning/breeding work myself with my own horses, along with the expert assistance of Ali and Maurissa, we still frequently call for and rely on the the excellent advice and guidance of our outstanding Board Certified Theriogenologist (fertility, reproductive and neonatal specialist) vet, Dr. Benjamin Espy.  With the exception of foal watch and foaling out of the mares, Dr. Espy (assisted by Ali, Maurissa and/or myself) determines, oversees and/or performs all of the breeding related procedures, new foal examinations and plasma administration or other mare/foal treatment procedures on the client mares which are brought here to the farm to receive breeding/foaling services.
