A Passion Harnessed

As a young girl, Ellen Stanton would race to catch a glimpse of the milkman’s horse as it pulled the cart through her neighborhood. She could never have known that her affinity for these creatures would lead to caring for more than 60 horses on the nearly 100-acre farm she and her husband built from the ground up. Even now, at the age of 85, she continues to teach riding lessons, tend to the stables, and take care of her horses.
