Marilyn Petersen  FarleySo in my case, it was not the kids that wondered off, it was Mom.

I lived in Troy, Idaho until 1994 when I moved to Wisconsin for one year and then to Oklahoma, and last summer to Texas.

I have worked in the equine (horse) industry for many years raising, training & showing horses or giving lessons to those youth and amateurs who choose to show their own horses.  I am also involved heavily in the horse show management part of the industry.  I own a horse training facility in Oklahoma but am currently in the process of offering the property for sale and will then live full time in Texas.  At one time managing the ranch and having 45 to 50 horses to be responsible for was all in a days work, but those long 16 hour days just weren't as enjoyable after the age of 50 something crept up on me.  So I am in "scaledown mode".

I have been blessed with so many great customers from all parts of the United States and several European countries.

I still do travel extensively through out the US to shows which has given me a great opportunity to become friends with people far and near.  While my show career has been extremely sucessful, the comradery among horse trainers is encredable.
