Shallowbrook Equestrian acquires Genesis Farm
SOMERS, CONN. Shallowbrook Equestrian Center in Somers formally announced the acquisition of Genesis Farm of Enfield, Conn. Sally Allison and Frank Vita, co-owners of Shallowbrook, have purchased the equestrian business in a continued effort to achieve their five-year business objectives and build on their strength as a high quality hunt seat and polo facility in the North Central Connecticut and Western Massachusetts areas.
Instructor Logan Allison led the search to find stables with a common goal of providing a fun riding experience for the casual enthusiast to the competitive equestrian.
“Shallowbrook and Genesis Farm share the same philosophy … to provide exceptional instruction to all levels of students, quality care for horses, and deliver what our customers need to succeed,” Allison said.
Effective Aug. 1, Tiffany Bianco of Genesis Farm joined the team of instructors, and is teaching and training at Shallowbrook under the direction of Allison, who is also head trainer. “We look forward to becoming part of the Shallowbrook legacy to lead ‘the next generation’ of accomplished equestrians,” Bianco said.
This announcement comes on the heels of many improvements to the Shallowbrook facility since 2008 in efforts to bring Shallowbrook to the next level of equestrian excellence. Shallowbrook offers beginner to advanced lessons to ages three and older specializing in hunt seat and polo. The Shallowbrook team believes in a full approach to riding, teaching students not only the theory and discipline of riding but the importance of horse care and personal growth.
“We have been family owned and operated since 1962 providing quality horse care and exceptional instruction to all of those that enter our doors. We are excited for the Genesis team to be a part of our team. With the addition of Tiffany’s impressive knowledge and care of horse and rider, we look forward to many wonderful equestrian experiences together,” Allison said.
Shallowbrook looks forward to continued success in 2011 with the accomplishments of their students, additional facility improvements and host of many horse shows.
Shallowbrook welcomes visitors to take a tour of the facility and be a part of bigger and better horse shows through November.
