Legacy Farms is what used to be Silvershod Stables, now under new ownership by Paul and Paula Lafferty. They live on the premises and feel truly blessed to own Legacy Farms.
Although Paul and Paula Lafferty are new to the Hollister area, they are not new to world of horses. Paula rode as a child at a friend of the family’s ranch in Massachusetts. She is passionate about anything to do with horses or dogs. As a teen she purchased her own horse, "Whiskey", a Tennessee walker/thoroughbred cross that she rode everywhere. She teamed up with a friend who showed western pleasure and started down that path.
As an adult she has ridden and successfully competed in English flat classes and in Dressage. Currently she plans to compete with her Musical freestyle designed by Cynthia Collins of Luna Tunes. Paul and Paula also show and breed Bichon Frise and English Cockers. Paula has many accreditations as, CMG, Certified Master groomer which is by three different organizations. Local, national and international levels. She is also a CAH, companion animal Hygienist. She helped in writing this program which is now a national accreditation program.
The Lafferty's have experienced many different types of horse facilities from scary to exquisite. We have also helped friends with their 100+ show horse facility.
Their goal is to create and maintain a safe and fun environment for horses and the people who love them.
They have been making a lot of improvements on the property. The covered arena has improved footing and now is watered and groomed on a daily basis with their new Roto-harrow.
They are working on the stalls putting new base rock in the runs and mats to make the horses more comfortable in the stalls and improve drainage.
The Lafferty's look forward to meeting and getting to know the people and horses of this area.
