Debbie Pantone is the owner and manager of Pinnacle Farm. She chose the name for a couple of reasons, the first being as you drive down the road in route to the farm it rises up to greet you and second because owning and operating a horse facility has been a life long dream and the height of her life. Debbie has owned and cared for up to as many as 70 horses for the past 22 years but they never cease to amaze and are complete individuals requiring individual treatment. Debbie lives on the property and is a few steps away from the barn on any given day, her horses are her family. Debbie also practices Occupational Therapy at a local SNF and has been a licensed therapist for the past 28 years for geriatrics, pediatrics, school based, home care, hospital care and outpatient care. This experience along with a certification in Equine Assisted Growth and Learning have created the Hoofsteps program at Pinnacle Farm.

She can help you with basic riding skills, work with your horse if you encounter difficulty, and give basic instruction to most levels of riders to Second Level Dressage and Training level Eventing. She has not shown above Training level so will not claim proficiency in higher levels although she knows the technical aspects which evolve through the levels. Natalie feels the horse of any disipline can be enhanced with the basics of Dressage. It is a foundation for a horse to rely on regardless of the direction you should choose. She can help you achieve great communication and response from your horse through Dressage training.
