We have a true passion for performance.

 

This is how we stay focused.  At Fire Run Farm, we celebrate the many unique and personal interpretations of focus and discipline in riding for horses and rider's horsemanship - and the special connections and bonds we share with our horses.

Shelly grew up in the horse business in northern California where her father operated a boarding and training stable and re-trained horses with severe problems. He also trained trick horses and he had several clients who were local television celebrities. From a very early age, Shelly was his only assistant in operation of the 50-horse facility. She has successfully shown many breeds of horses including Thoroughbreds, Quarter Horses, Morgans, Saddlebreds, National Show Horses and Arabians in a variety of divisions from equitation to reining and side saddle. As a junior exhibitor I qualified in all three equitation medal classes and won numerous high point awards.

She has also held USEF Judging Cards in the Arabian, National Show Horse, Saddlebred, Western and Equitation divisions. She judged the Scottsdale Arabian Show and the Equitation division of the Arabian and National Show Horse Finals, as well as coached 4-H judging teams on the local and state levels.

Shelly is looking forward to exploring the Pacific Northwest’s camping and hiking opportunities with her two yellow Labradors, Dharma and Toby. And as an avid art lover, she hopes to take in local art museums and galleries, as well as attend concerts and other musical events. She is happy to be back on the West Coast and part of the Fire Run Farm Team!


Kurt and Teri Rumens

Owners, Fire Run Farm

 Kurt and Teri Rumens first opened Fire Run Farm in 1996 as a private Morgan breeding farm and show facility for their family and a few select clients. They always imagined opening up the facility to new families and sharing their love of Morgans with others, but it was not until their children became adults and started their own lives that they came face-to-face with what to do about the future of the farm. 

The Rumens have always had the elite facility and the beautiful horses. Now, with Suzanne, they have the ability to bring fresh faces not only to the farm, but into the Morgan arena. For the past several years, Teri and Suzanne have worked in perfect harmony to spread the word about Fire Run Farm’s programs.

Their passion is obvious and energy infectious. Don’t be surprised if you leave the conversation with a deeper appreciation and love for the Morgan.
