Meet Broken Heart Horse Farm

A Welcoming Community of Horse Lovers

When it comes to enjoying the horses we love, the process of finding the perfect barn is daunting. It's more than just a building; it's the place where we spend our precious free time; it's the community we become involved in; it's the training and coaches that give us the confidence to reach our potential, and it's the people who care for our horses.

That's why, at Broken Heart, we're growing a respectful, welcoming community of horse lovers and a barn with premium facilities, elite trainers, and individualized boarding services with generous turn-out. A place where horses can be horses, and riders can safely and consistently progress in equine sports.

Meet Erin Mullane

Founder and head trainer Erin Mullane grew up successfully competing in the United States Equestrian Federation. In recent years her passion for Ranch Versatility has grown, competing and winning in the National Versatility Ranch Horse. Erin has a long history of training both horse and rider to successfully reach their goals and compete at all levels, including national. Her comprehensive training approach, drawing knowledge from both English and Western disciplines, distinguishes her from other trainers. Erin works with each of her riders to set goals and preserver through challenges, focusing on rider equitation to elicit the best performance from their horse. Their ultimate success is her greatest reward.

Broken Heart Horse Farm is currently training our riders to compete within USEF, CHJA, NVRHA, IHSA, IEA, and many local organizations.
