Beth Heffelfinger
Stable Manager

Beth acquired her love for horses from her mom who purchased their first horse when Beth was only 8 years old.  Purchasing that first horse began the journey of starting a family business that included boarding and training horses as well as teaching riding lessons.  Having grown up as one of 7 children, Beth soon learned the importance of cooperation and hard work when it came to working with horses.

Beth has had the privilege of teaching riding lessons for over 30 years.  For the past 10 years, Beth has been the stable manager here at Whoa Nellie Farm.  She enjoys the family atmosphere at Whoa Nellie.  She also enjoys taking her students to some local horse shows as well as participating in paper chases and other fun activities.
