The Farm
How it all started..
Owners Lynn Hendrickson and Bob Martineau, were motorcycle enthusiasts. They enjoyed cruising around the back roads of Maine on their motorcycles, logging hundreds of miles on the weekends. Bob thought that Lynn's motorcycle was a good substitute for her desire to own a horse. Then one day, a friend invited Lynn to go on a horseback ride. After spending a day in the saddle, Lynn realized just how much she missed having horses and riding. Selling her motorcycle and getting a horse became a priority, much to the dismay of her husband. That following year, Lynn and Bob, purchased a home surrounded by over grown hay fields in Richmond, Maine. Soon a barn, paddocks, fencing and a riding ring were being built. Stalls were filling with horses and the smell of fresh hay was in the air. Bob still laments, "We should have kept the motorcycles", however he wouldn't trade his horse for the world.

And what we're doing now...
RIDING, of course. Caught in the act of having fun at Popham Beach last Fall. Brian Beard, of Creative Images Photography, took this wonderful picture of us galloping next to the Bowdoin College Cross-country team. Brian's, Maine based, company specializes in action sports photography.
