Teresa is native to Baltimore, Maryland. She has lived in other parts of the country to include Seattle, Washington and Oklahoma, making her home now here in the Upstate of South Carolina.
Having traveled extensively within the USA and abroad has afforded Teresa with a wide variety of knowledge regarding other cultures and making new friends all over the world! People skills is one of Teresa's strongest points. With a very close second of overwhelming love, care, and devotion to horses, and animals of all kind.
College educated and business oriented with a very strong background in caring for horses, she makes for the perfect surrogate caregiver for those who own horses, but do not have a place to keep their beloved horses at home. Teresa runs a very neat and organized operation and it is well worth a visit to A Knight's Echo Farm (even if there is a waiting list), as this is a place that you will not want to miss! Such attention to detail not only includes the horses themselves but care for the grounds, the grass that the horses need to graze on is always a priority as well! Teresa has acquired approximately 19 years of actual boarding stable management.
Teresa's personal background with riding is one that starts primarily on the trail! Then as a teenager she turned her interests to barrel racing on a mare that she had for over 23 years until a stroke took her to heaven's pastures (*Pictured above & on home page). This mare carried Teresa to many, many Champion and Reserve Champion victories. Awarded with too many ribbons to count, prize monies, and trophies filling her shelf in her home office.
Now a mom of one young son her interests have carried her in the direction of Dressage. "It's like learning to ride all over again," you might hear her say, "but, I love it!"
Especially with such a wonderful instructor, Kristin Schriener.
Teresa was an Environmental Technician for a local manufacturing company that unfortunately closed. Moved on to be the Training Administrator for a local Mfg. Co., then switched to another company to become a Administrative & H/R Assistant that also unfortunately closed down. Now, working at another manufacturing facility in Fountain Inn, in a data support role. Also dabbles a little bit with Business Card design, Resumes, Report Typing, etc., and of course Boarding Stable Management.
"After a long hard day, my favorite thing to do is to catch one of these unbelievable sunsets while watching the horses with my precious son, or to sit out on the deck looking at the night sky. I feel blessed to have found such a beautiful part of the country to call home." - Teresa Lewis
