Who We Are
Maura Sweeney- Reeve
Maura is the owner of Reevedale Farm and has been riding horses for the past forty years. She is the proud owner of the 2004 World Champion English Pleasure Junior Horse, Hillwood Irish Claddagh. Maura has successfully competed on the "A" level New England circuit as well as the 2009 and 2018 Morgan Grand National Horse Show in the English and Classic Pleasure Amateur divisions. In 2009, Maura was named the New England Morgan Horse Association's "Person of the Year" as recognition on her efforts and and hours spent devoted to the NEMHA. Today we can see Maura's commitment to providing the best care for our horses in everything she does at the barn.
Maura and Stephen met in 1985, and went on to create the Reevedale we know today. In 2009, Stephen completed the intricate construction of our 14 stall barn and indoor arena. It wouldn't be Reevedale Farm without Stephen! Today you can see Stephen stacking hay, fixing fences and lights, clearing trails and helping us all with barn projects. His hard work definitely does not go unnoticed! Stephen is also owner-operator of S.T. Reeve Painting and Construction INC.
We couldn't be more excited to welcome Adam Sherman to our team! Adam started with us at just 12 years old, setting the stage for a life-long love of our horses and the breed. Adam has worked with dozens of top training barns across the US, each earning him a role in the work toward countless world and national champions. In March of 2021, Adam returned back to his roots at Reevedale Farm. He now trains the Reevedale Show String with a positive and fun atmosphere, and the connections between horse and trainer are always evident. The Reevedale Morgans (and riders) are flourishing with Adam's hard work, and we can't wait to show them off!
We are pleased to welcome Julie Lagosz to the Reevedale Team! Julie has shared in the love of the Morgan breed since her walk-trot days, riding competitively in many disciplines, including one year on our Hillwood Irish Fiddler! After enjoying a year training at Mercer Springs Farm, Julie has returned to the Northeast to take up the role as our instructor and trainer. Julie will be running our lesson and specialty programs, as well as co-training our show strings. Check out our Facebook and the Services page for more information.
