Lisa Pleasance - Owner
My love of horses began at age seven when I started competing in the local Southern California shows. With years of dedication and practice, I won the USET Medal Finals West Coast in 1987 and multiple 1.2M Mini Prixs thereafter. Throughout my journey, I have had the honor to train with amazing trainers including Joe Lifto, Patty Foltz-McCarty, Sherry Rose/Tommy Lowe, Karen Healey, David Murdock, and Catherine Cruger.
My husband Darren and our two children, Chris and Lauren, moved to Bend fourteen years ago. After many years of searching, we found the perfect piece of land in Tumalo to build our dream farm. Joining forces with my long-time friend and owner/trainer of Starnes Equestrian, Simone Starnes, we created a well thought out equestrian facility and named it Meridian Peaks Farm! Our hope is to share our compassion, expertise, and state of the art facility with other horse lovers!
