Purchased by Andrew Glenn and Andrea St.Hilaire-Glenn in March 2005, Glenbaer is located in the heart of North Carolina horse country, just minutes from Southern Pines. The past nine years have consisted of incredible hard work and dedication to rennovating the farm from its original condition. Numerous improvements have occurred, with the ultimate goal of providing a safe, functional, and attractive breeding and training facility.
Under the guidance of eight-time Olympian J. Michael Plumb, Glenbaer Farm has branched out into several interrelated programs (see below). The original Glenbaer is the breeding and broodmare boarding facility (see Boarding) while JMP Farm and the contiguous Hunter Grove offer satellite locations for training and schooling in the heart of Southern Pines (see Training).
Beginning this season, a lovely new program will be added to Glenbaer, fondly named "Halcyon Hunters." Halcyon Hunters includes the breeding program and sale division of Glenbaer Farm, named in memory of long-time friend of the Plumb family, Anne Nicodemus ("Nic") Carpenter. Nic's classy demeanor, gentle brilliance, intrinsic wisdom, and immense, indescribable understanding and kindness to animals are the perpetual qualities sought after in the Halcyon program.
Halcyon strives to breed and produce correct, sound, athletic, wise horses as field hunters, eventers, and periodic show hunters. Each horse in the program treated as a unique individual, with the goal of enhancing properly-mannered, respectful, straightforward behaviors. Training follows a refined, nuanced, methodological approach, with a truly correct beginning produced by the knowledge garnered from generations of horsemanship. Nic's Thoroughbred stallion, "Tommy Tune," is the foundation of Halcyon, and is currently known to be the last of a line of horses bred by J. Michael Plumb's mother.
Andrea will be expanding her design portfolio with numerous additions for the 2014 season. Her design experience entails veritable immersion and apprenticing with top FEI, USEF "R" and "r" designers. As a USEA-certified designer (BN-T), she designed the cross-country for 2013 summer events for Chattahoochee Hills in Fairburn, GA, as well as Five Points HT at the Carolina Horse Park. Her resume also includes the unrecognized Cabin Branch Event Series at the Carolina Horse Park. The spring of 2014 will include time apprenticing abroad with additional FEI designers, and the intended autumn testing for her USEF 'r' CD license.
