Heather Metz

Richie Bernard

Owner/ Stable Manager

Richie has been around horses since before he could walk! He grew up on his family's farm right on the edge of Bucks County where his mother trained & bred Morgan Show Horses in addition to running their boarding facility for several decades. After school & on weekends you could find him in the barn bonding with the horses, helping with chores and assisting with training In-Hand, Lunging, Long-lining and Driving. After an injury ended his professional football career with the Philadelphia Eagles, Richie continued his passion for horses and took a job at Waterford Farm in North Jersey. In 2019 he joined HME to over see the facilities and top care of our athletes. Richie enjoys working with young horses and uses his ground training to supplement all our equine athletes throughout their under saddle training.
