Lighthouse Stables, LLC, is owned and operated by Stacy Hess. She is also the resident trainer and instructor. Stacy's lifelong passion for horses is the constant drive to pursue her dreams.
Stacy has spent a lifetime loving horses and aspiring to be a better horseman. She constantly seeks to improve and educate not only
herself but those in her tutelage, both human and equine.
Growing up in Virginia, Stacy had the opportunity to not only ride with but also work for both Tim Henry of Oak Hill Academy and Kathy Jones-Cook of Mountainview Stables. During this time, she also trained her own horses at home and showed throughout the Virginias, Carolinas, Kentucky and Tennessee. Later, Stacy worked for Mercer Springs Farm, where she had the chance to learn from Smith, Alexandra and Sandy Lilly.
In 2009, Stacy moved to Mighican to train at a barn in Kalamazoo and operated as Hillcrest Stables, LLC. There she established clientele that prompted the relocation in 2013 to South Haven. Lighthouse Stables, LLC specializes in training the American Saddlebred, Hackney pony and saddlseat Friesian.
