Hilary Keller- Owner

Hilary has been involved with horses since she was a young girl. As a girl, Hilary competed at local level shows and trained under Sue Black, but took a break from horses when she left for college. After college, she worked on a Dot Morgan's (exectutive director of New Vocations) standardbred farm, thoroughbred racing and breeding stable, and many others. Hilary got back into riding after her daughter, Kaileigh, was old enough to start riding and they purchased a new horse in 2002. Hilary rode and took lessons under the watchful eye of Mary Gamble at Apple Works Farm. Since then Hilary has become quite involved in the horse world. Whether she is out fox hunting, watching her daughter show or showing herself, it is a safe bet that in her spare time she is doing something with horses. It has always been a dream of Hilary's to run a stable, and when Deep Run Hunt Club's equine facility became available, she knew it was the opportunity for her. Her valuable time spent working in stables is an asset to Pine Crest Farm's management and operations!
