Tamara Hartl was born and raised in the Blue Ridge Mountains of southwest Virginia in the beautiful town of Floyd.
Getting her start with a Morgan Horse breeding and training facility, she went from cleaning stalls, and hot walking horses to barn manager.
Tamara left Owl Hollow Morgans to train at Ferney Creek Arabians and when the farm was relocated to Moulton, Texas, she moved with the owners and their Egyptian Arabians.
She still holds a day job working for a private owner as a farm manager and does the prep work for horses who will go on to show at the National level with a show trainer.
She now lives in south Texas with her husband, Ritchie, and two daughters, Jennifer and Cassidy, the oldest beginning her own adventures as a college student, as the youngest enjoys high school.
Of course she still has horses (too many) along with a menagerie of animals. The majority of the cats and dogs are rescues. The chickens are just a hobby that rewards her with chicken antic stories and fresh eggs.
She loves to read when she has a spare moment or two . She lists Diana Gabaldon as one of her favorite authors along with Linda Lael Miller, and James Rollins.
