Sylvania horse farm helping kids, planning veteran programming

Melanie Moore’s business has grown right alongside her students.One of her earliest, is 11-year-old student Riley Lamb. She has helped to guide Lamb’s growth as a person and as an equestrian for most of her life.

Moore said when Lamb first came to her eight years ago, she had sensory-overload outbursts that made it hard for her to ride, but since then she has grown. To be able to go from that “to watching her in a show ring and competing against all kinds of kids with different riding and most more advanced than her, and she can go in there and get a first-place ribbon. It touches you. “

Moore isn’t a registered equine therapist, but she teaches and helps all kinds of kids and adults at her farm, Wonder Horse Farm; hwhich has taken off as a result of a life spent around horses and a passion for them.

“My grand-daddy started taking me to see the neighbor’s horse years ago when I was about four, and it’s just been an addiction ever since,” Moore said.

This horse is named Missy and is owned by Glen May of Millen, GA.  Missy was trained by Melanie Moore of Wonder Horse Farm in Sylvania, GA, to load.

The family bought the property where they would develop their farm around 2007, allowing her to expand that passion. During her teenage years, Moore started training other people’s horses, and it grew into the business she has today, featuring two breeding stallions, 10 horses total for classes, competitions and training in all aspects of the horse.

“It’s not just get on and ride,” Moore said. “You learn from the ground-up. You learn the care of the horse, the ins and outs of, basically, being a horse owner.
