At Bel Mont farm, our clients are at the heart of our business. Below are snapshots and quotes from current boarders and clients at Bel Mont Farm.
“I have known Dorna Taintor since February 2011 when I brought a problem horse to her at Joe Fargis’ recommendation. Since then, despite the distance (I live north of Baltimore), I have boarded numerous horses at Bel Mont Farm. For the past 3 years she has trained my son in Hunter, Jumper and Equitation. Her training methods are traditional, methodical and have proven to be quite effective. When Bailey started with her, he was jumping 2’6”, both in and out of the ring. In just three short years, she has made him a solid 1.15m rider. The horse care that she provides is unparalleled; every consideration is given to the horses’ soundness and saneness. I never worry that my horses aren’t taken care of exactly to my specifications. It is her attention to detail that allows our horses to perform at the top of their game. The atmosphere at the barn is wonderful; we are like a family. We all look out for each other and jump in to help as needed. Finding Dorna has been such a blessing. I highly recommend her as both a trainer and a horse care provider. ”

“I've been riding with Dorna since August of 2010, when I brought my very green 3.5 year old mare to Bel Mont. At that time, she had less than 60 days under saddle, and I arrived intending to have Dorna put some more flatwork on her before moving her to my prior barn. However, within a few weeks, it became apparent I had found a wonderful new barn and would be staying. Dorna has spent the last 2.5 years developing her slowly and carefully into a wonderful horse who is both competitive in the show ring and very amateur friendly. Dorna's patience, kindness, and softness as a rider have given my (sometimes difficult) mare a ton of confidence. She has also involved me in the process every step of the way in her training and care. She is a consummate professional and horsewoman. Honest to a fault, dedicated to doing things the right way (even if it takes more time), attentive to details of horse care & management, and extremely hard working. I have been absolutely thrilled with Dorna and the rest of the team at Bel Mont, and look forward to continued success.”
