In July, 1981 we purchased our first home. An 87 acre farm in the Genesee County, town of Pavilion. At that time, Hawks Road only had two dwellings on it and we felt it was a quiet country setting to settle in and raise a family. As children came and grew, we switched from ridding horses to draft horses and began to show up to a 4 Horse Hitch of Registered Percheron Mares. Then, as the children got older, graduated from high school and college, we began to loose all the help it required to keep good hitch horses in shape for a show season.

Not even being able to think about selling and getting out of these beautiful horses, Roger and I started doing weddings as a side business,which keeps us busy on most weekends. We also added on to our little farm and expanded to nearly 200 acres.

On April 1st, 2006, Roger retired from Kodak, and I retired from my business career on January 9, 2018 (sort of)! My love of horses and not being happy with retirement, brought me to Henderson Equine Clinic on October 22, 2018.

Laura joined the Henderson Equine Family in June of 2019. She grew up in Dansville across the street from Trinity Stables. She took her first riding lesson when she was 7 and was instantly hooked on horses. She competed for several years through USPCA with 4 PenNy II where she found her love for eventing.

When she’s not at the clinic she enjoys spending time with her family, hiking, gardening, and sharing her love for horses with her twin daughters; teaching them how to ride. Laura is over the moon about starting her career with Henderson Equine Clinic and is excited for what the future holds.
