Hi there! My name is Isabel Plimpton, and I am the proud manager of the Waredaca Red Barn.
I grew up in California but have also lived in Utah, Montana, Virginia and now Maryland. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Animal Science at the University of Maryland with an emphasis on equine care. I aspire to use this degree to run my own barn someday.
While I am the youngest member of Waredaca, I have been involved with horses and their care most of my life. My first equestrian experience was riding English and through it I found a passion for jumping. Since then I have ridden, volunteered, and worked for several riding establishments. I volunteered at the National Center for Equine Facilitated Therapy in Woodside, California and helped humans with disabilities better themselves. Then, during my time in Utah and Montana I worked providing horses with therapy to better their lives, as well as colt training. As a result, I’ve grown to love working with horses using a therapeutic approach that focuses on their needs as animals. Besides my passion and training, I’ve also dabbled in vaulting and Western events like calf penning and roping. I have taught riding at several places, and most recently have free-lanced as a private trainer of horses and as a riding instructor.
When I am not at the barn, you can find me at home with my two Siamese cats or spending time outside with my family. I am a positive, hardworking, and ambitious individual, who has been blessed with a passion for horses.
