Black Oak Farm has been breeding, raising, shipping, rehabilitating and boarding horses for over twenty years. The farm is located just outside of Atlantic City, New Jersey.
In just a few years of working with Turning for Home, Black Oak Farm has assisted more than 100 horses. The farm’s program is unique in that Kelly Lupton rides, markets and places the horses into new homes, while mother Gina Lupton handles the daily horse care and rehabilitation. Gina’s husband Jack Gordon regularly ships up and down the East Coast, making it simple to deliver adopted horses to their new homes. Follow-up on alumni is just as easy, as Kelly is in regular contact with all of her adopters.
Kelly has competed in both Thoroughbred Makeovers, including 2016 when she rode two Turning for Home graduates – Samurai Sam and Brannaman.
