Misty Meadows Stable began in the Endless Mountain region of Pennsylvania. We were located about 15 minutes from Troy, PA in a small community called Granville Summit. We had 25 acres, an indoor arena and 19 stalls. I taught English and Western horseback riding lessons and my students participated in 4-H shows, hunter shows and combined training shows in PA and NY.
Because of family job changes, we had to leave the beautiful mountains of PA and relocate to the sunny Florida Panhandle. It was a good move for us in many ways, but we were sad to leave all our people friends and our horse friends behind. We shipped
seven of our horses down to Florida and we had wonderful friends down here that let our horses stay with them for six months until we found a good location to restart our farm.
We are in a very good location, close to Panama City and we have made many new friends and have wonderful students and boarders riding with us. Our goal is to teach people to respect, enjoy and learn about horseback riding in a safe, relaxed atmosphere. Our farm is a family run business focused on teaching safe and good horse back riding skills and building on that for those want to jump and show.
Beth Graham lives on the farm and teaches year round. She attended Meredith Manor School of Horsemanship in Waverly, West Virginia in her youth and worked at an Arabian Breeding Farm, Sitting Rock Arabian Farms in Madison, NC, also worked at Woodridge Stables in Chapel Hill, NC where she managed the facility and ran their lesson program. She attended North Carolina State University and University of Wyoming, majoring in Animal Science. She worked in Hillsborough, NJ at Black Horse Stable as a supervisor and taught lessons, plus showed in and helped run the six horse shows they put on every year for students and local people. She is a member of the American Riding Instructors Association and attended their conference in Naples, FL, December 2007 and November 2009. She has attended many expos and clinics and is constantly updating her education.
Karema Moheisen has been coaching the stables' high school and middle school IEA team for over 8 years. Check out our Bay County Equestrian Team page to find out more about it. Karema worked with Cricket Clark, who is a grand prix jumper trainer and who is a true horseman that can make any horse just that little bit better and happier in it's work, and competitive in the show ring. She has also taken lessons with 'R' judge Micheal Newman who helped refine her riding and develop her eye for talented horses.
Nadia Moheisen has all her gotten all her scores for completion of her USDF bronze and silver medals and half of her gold medal with the help of S Judge and Grand Prix Trainer Brian Macmahon in Wellborn, Fl who she trains with regularly. All the scores were on horses Nadia trained herself and brought up through the levels. Nadia spent a month in high school in Pittsburgh, PA at the Robert O. Mayer Riding Academy learning Classical Dressage with Robert O. Mayer and Lacey Mayer. She also apprenticed at Friesians of Majesty in Townshend, Vermont working with trainer David Donnelly to increase her education in dressage.
Karema and Nadia have both worked with and ridden a large variety of horses and have had instruction in hunter-jumper and dressage for many years starting in NJ to PA to FL to VA and between the two have started over 50 young horses.
