Together Everyone Achieves More
Sandy Schlesinger has been a part of the Whitestone Farm team since it's inception in 2007, and has worked closely with trainer Carol Hawley managing and caring for horses and clients since 1998. She brings a lifetime of knowledge and skill to her work, and we are so grateful for her! Sandy is directly involved in all aspects of our operation at Whitestone, and after raising 3 successful children, 2 of whom are accomplished show hunter riders (veterinarian, physician, real estate professional) she is able to organize and maintain our operation while living onsite.
Clayton and Kaelynn Parker are also a valued and integral part of our Whitestone Farm community. As they pursue their Advanced educations, we are very fortunate to have them living and working at the farm, attending to the horse's and client's every need with unparalleled attention to detail. Thank you Kaelynn and Clayton!
