The Sterba Family has announced the opening of Famesgate Stables in the Shenandoah Valley, just east of Charlottesville, Virginia.
Located just off I-64, one hour west of Richmond, and 2.5 hours south of Washington DC, Famesgate Stables will be under the direction of Katy Sterba and will provide training, sales and lessons. Specializing in American Saddlebreds, Katy will bring expertise gained from working as an assistant trainer at Mercer Springs Farm, Grey Ridge Farm and Stachowski Farm. During that time, Katy learned from notable trainers, including Smith and Alexandra Lilly, Bret and Susi Day, Jim Stachowski and TJ Santaferra.
The farm includes 24 matted stalls, a lighted indoor arena with bullpen, large outdoor arena, and paddock space for turnout horses. Famesgate will focus primarily on the training, purchase and sale of show horses, but also will offer lessons tailored to rider needs and skill level.
For more information, contact Katy Sterba at 434-989-5468.
