Their facility is top of the line with picturesque views and rolling hills, perfect for conditioning and training.
Having competed through the Three Star level, Lucia enjoys starting the horses at a young age and has successfully produced many horses to the upper levels. Plain Dealing Farm imports promising young horses to add depth to their program, and Lucia and Benita manage a talented string ranging from green 4 year olds to Advanced level competitors. Both Benita and Lucia have years of experience working with horses and have gained skills through training with some of the countries best eventers including: Kim Severson, Will Coleman, Jan Byyny, and Phillip Dutton. Lucia and Benita work very closely together to make sure that each horse is brought along at the right speed and with the right care to produce success.
