Crystal Wever, TRF Herd Manager Crystal Wever is not a stranger to thoroughbreds. She grew up in a family with a tradition of raising, training and racing thoroughbreds. Crystal came to TRF with over 18 years of experience working and riding thoroughbreds. For a brief period, she pursued a career as a Radiological Technologist, but truly missed spending her days with the horses. TRF thoroughbreds are very fortunate to have Crystal who plays an important part in the management and care. She certainly spoils them!
Bailey Hatcher, Assistant Herd Manager Bailey Hatcher studied business management at Ferrum College and attended Meredith Manor International Equestrian College to obtain a Masters III in training and equine massage therapy. Before coming to TRF, Bailey was head groom and trainer, all pointing to the experience needed to watch over and care for the TRF herd. When Bailey isn’t at TRF, she spends time nurturing her own farm animals and training for English and western competitions. Her knowledge, patience and know how serves our TRF horses quite well.
Ron Churnick, Maintenance Manager What would TRF Farm be without Ron Churnick who is an extremely integral part of the team? Ron is exceptionally dedicated to ensuring the fields are well maintained and safe for the TRF herd. If you’re looking for Ron, you'll find him out checking the fence lines, doing repairs, and building/repairing all the run-in-sheds. What a gem on the farm!
