Pat Lambert - Trainer

Pat Lambert began her horse career at age five when her parents purchased for her a hunter show pony. She spent several years showing ponies and became a show groom and working student at a show barn in Florida by the age of 12. By age 16, her interests turned to racehorses and she worked at a local track as a groom and exercise rider. She spent almost 20 years in the Thoroughbred industry, first with racing horses, flying around the country with them from track to track, then later at lay-up farms and finally at a broodmare farm where she found working with foals and young horses to be her greatest pleasure.

Pat continues to work at Oakhaven, handling our foals from the day they are born until they come under saddle. She follows "Natural Horsemanship" methods and has studied with Tom Curtain, Buck Brannaman, Janet Manley, and Linda Hoover among others.

Our foals are lucky to have her as their first teacher!
