Brenda Langendoen - Owner and Instructor
Brenda grew up loving horses as most young girls do. Once in college studying Recreation Leadership, she decided to follow her passion and start taking riding lessons. She immediately fell in love with the sport and western riding and quickly grew in her knowledge and skills, completing an CEF coaching program in 1995-1996 and becoming a certified CHA coach in 1996 as well as graduating from Mohawk College.
She began teaching at local horse farms and in 1999 property was purchased in Fenwick to build her dream horse farm! She has continued to work hard to provide the best possible horse programs and services for beginner to advanced riders.
Brenda is the main instructor for intermediate to advanced riders, coaching many students to championships in both pleasure and games classes.
Brenda is currently expanding her knowledge of the exciting sport of reining and training her main horse "Buddy" in this discipline. She loves to learn and continues to take lessons and attend clinics to grow as a rider, instructor and trainer.
Robert Langendoen - Owner and Instructor
Rob's interest in horses came after living on the horse farm and learning all about horses and their unique qualities. After 17 years of working at Culligan, he decided to come to work on the farm full time.
Rob's passion is in draft horses and how they can be used to work the land. He first purchased a beautiful Percheron "Pepper" and began driving her. Soon after, one was not enough so he purchased a Belgian named "Jess". Together they make a wonderful team and are used to work up the footing of the arenas and give rides through the field. He hopes to someday use the team for wagon and sleigh rides.
Rob is known as the "Big Kid" and provides a very entertaining atmosphere at B'N'R Stables! He is the main instructor for beginner lessons and camps - making learning tons of fun for all ages!
We are here to welcome you into the wonderful world of horses!
