Sharon grew up in Maryland and developed a love of horses at an early age. She bought her first horse at the age of 10, putting up $40 and borrowing $110 from her uncle to complete the purchase. She joined the local Horse and Pony 4-H where she was an enthusiastic member. After high school, she got a job in a foxhunting stable with the late Mr.and Mrs. Dean Bedford. Later, she worked for the legendary Hirsch Jacobs, breaking yearlings and galloping racehorses.
Five years after graduating from high school, Sharon decided to put her horse career on hold. She began her college education - better late than never. Three years later, she graduated from the University of Delaware with a degree in English. Sharon worked for several international companies in sales, advertising and public relations. She returned to the farm in the late 80's with the goal of developing the resources of Rigbie Farm into a viable business.
Today, Sharon oversees the 150 horses who reside at Rigbie year-round and the over 200 head that move through the farm's offered services. She brings a unique blend of hands-on experience and business skills to the daily operations at Rigbie Farm.Liz Collard
