Bill Calvert's career began over 45 years ago training young horses for the hunter/jumper show ring on the west coast. When Bill moved east, he added training young Thoroughbreds for the racetrack to his resume. In 1992 Bill moved to Charlotte, NC to manage Brigadoon Farm and was founding Professional Huntsman for The Flat Branch Foxhounds. When Brigadoon was sold to developers, he and his wife Lisa built their own barn in Lancaster, SC. The barn was sold and Bill now travels to teach & train at various locations, and judge & steward at horseshows.
Lisa Calvert began riding at Rock Creek Park Horse Center in Washington, D.C. when she was 5 years old. At age 12, her family moved to Potomac, MD where she joined the Potomac Pony Club, rode with the Potomac Hunt, competed at Hunter/Jumper shows and won an ASPCA Maclay class. Lisa worked full-time as professional groom & braider before opening her own barn near Tampa, FL. Shortly after closing her barn, a childhood friend set her up on a blind date to meet Bill.
39 years later they have 2 grown children and continue to be in the horse business together.
