Dawn Taylor-Bell

Owner & Trainer

I began riding when I was 7 years old and felt such a passion and obsession that I knew then that I would be with horses forever. Over my years of riding I discovered the challenge of working with young (green) ponies and horses and began the process of teaching others what I had learned. It soon became clear to me that I wanted to give back everything I could to the sport of riding and in 1997 I opened Out of Reach Farm and started a new chapter in my life as an instructor, trainer and care-giver. Today I am thrilled to see the members of OORF become part of my family and appreciate the sport of riding along with the respect and love that horses give us. I love being a part of making people's dreams come true every day.


Maria Trongo

Farm Manager & Trainer

After years of begging my parents to let me start riding, I finally came and took my first lesson at Out Of Reach Farm  when I was 9 years old. I progressed quickly and had total dedication to my riding career from the start. By the age of twelve I was already showing in the Local Hunters at Devon! Over the years my favorite hobby and sport has turned into my dream job. Along with being the Farm Manager, I still compete with my own horse, train/show the green horses at the farm, and teach lessons to riders of all ages and levels. Every person brings a different personality and set of goals to their lessons, and it's fun to meet such a variety of people and help them to reach their goals in the horse world like I have!
