Happy Dance Farm is a private husband and wife owned and operated boutique horse farm. We breed and raise Elite Warmblood show hunters and jumpers then train and compete them. We only train and compete our own horses, and are free from outside customers. Located on the West side of Metro St. Louis, we usually have a few select horses offered for sale. WIth all of our sales horses Happy Dance Farm is committed to train each one of them to offer a valuable partnership to their next owner. Our unique program produces happy horses that have the foundation to be successful show hunters and jumpers, eventers, and fox hunters.
Tom and Stephanie
Tom has a background in training horses both professionally and as an amateur for over 55+ years primarily in Arabs and Saddlebreds. His forte is starting and giving young horses a foundation on the flat. His knowledge of dressage and sensitivity to the aids enables him to educate our young horses to be light, balanced and responsive. This attention to elementary detail translates into a solid foundation that enhances our horse's training over fences.
Stephanie has a lifelong background as an amateur riding and training hunters and jumpers. Having left a Corporate Career in 2022 she now dedicates her time working full time with Tom to develop Happy Dance Farm's young horses. After Tom's intricate training on the flat, Stephanie and Tom work together to teach their youngsters jumping and when ready, introduce them to hunter and jumper horse shows. Our horse show training includes both a local circuit, "Junior Varsity" and Rated Circuit, "Varsity" String, where Stephanie rides and Tom trains.
