Mary Lynn Foster, Owner and Instructor
Mary Lynn has had a passion for horses since she was a little girl. As an adult she began taking lessons with her oldest daughter and this began what would become a family shared passion for horses. Freaky Styley “Georgia”, an American Saddlebred, joined the family and fulfilled Mary Lynn’s childhood dream of owning a horse. Over the years she has become more and more involved in the saddlebred horse world, continuing with lessons, horse shows, and becoming involved with several horse associations while supporting the family passion for saddlebreds and showing.
In 2005 Mary Lynn made the decision of a lifetime to fulfill an even larger childhood dream of owning a farm. Trinity Farm was born in August 2005 when the family made the big move. When Mary Lynn is not working outside on the farm she continues to work as a registered nurse at Riley Childrens Hospital in the Neonatal Intensive Care unit. She has been an RN for over 20 years. Her other interests include reading and growing friendships.
Abra Foster, DVM and Adoptions Specialist
Abra has been involved with horses since that fateful day she came home and asked if she could take riding lessons ‘like her friend Lauren’. At the age of 9, she began lessons with Barbara Kyler of Falcon Run Farm learning skills as a saddle seat rider that she continues to apply and teach today. Abra showed natural talent as she progressed thru her years in academy shows, 4H Horse and Pony and into ‘the big time’ as a saddle seat pleasure equitation rider and Jr. Exhibitor with Georgia. Abra’s current work is development of dressage techniques to further develop her riding.
Abra is a Purdue University graduate with a talent for introducing children to the world of animals. She graduated from Purdue University of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in May of 2016. She works at the Indianapolis Humane Society full time and is our consulting animal care specialist. Abra is an avid reader and infuses new ideas into the education and training at the farm.
Hannah Stilwell, Family & Farm Supporter
Hannah has been riding since she was 3 years old and began taking lessons (‘riding the big horses’) at the age of 6. She has been showing saddle seat at local and area shows ever since.
Hannah made a big move to an assistant training and instructor position in the Fall of 2014 and is our Kentucky contact for training needs. She loves traveling and showing at all levels of the Saddlebred show world and her new position at Monnington Farm in Simpsonville makes this dream a reality. As a Trinity Farm Family member, she is still a supporter of the farm and its riders.
Taylor Windle, Farm Assistant
Taylor joined Trinity Farm as a camp counselor in 2010. Taylor’s love of horses and saddlebreds began when she was 6 years old. She started her riding career with Barbara Kyler at Falcon Run Farm and had her first horse as just an eighth grader. J-bud, a National Show Horse, carried her during her 4H competition years. She currently owns Tiger, (ASB – Albelarm Tiger Woods), a liver chestnut she got when he was a 3 year old.
