Lee Ann Zobbe
Lee Ann Zobbe is Come Again Farm’s manager, show coach, and riding instructor. Horses have been a significant part of Lee Ann’s life for a long as she can remember. She has competed in multiple disciplines including Hunter/Jumpers, endurance riding, foxhunting, dressage, and eventing. She has been competing in eventing since 1981 and has worked along the way with some of the world’s best riders in the sport—Ian Stark, Darren Chiacchia, Peter Atkins, Sue Hines, Gretchen Verbonic, Max Gahwyler, Tom Valter, Jerry Schwartz, Tom Poulin, Michael Barrisone, Michael Handler and many clinics including Lucinda Green, Denny Emerson, and Bruce Davidson--to hone both her jumping and dressage skills.
Lee Ann has been teaching for over 20 years and her success with her students is demonstrated by their consistent placings in the year-end event standings. She works with all levels and ages of riders, delighting not only in the accomplishments of her more competitive junior riders, but also in the achievements of the parent who “gets on the horse after the kid goes to college”! Given her connections to the race-track and those individuals who foster retired race horses, LeeAnn has a particularly good eye for connecting off-the-track TBs with new owners.
Her dedication to the sport of eventing is exemplified by her activities when she is not instructing, coaching, and managing the barn. She was the Area VIII YR Coordinator from 2002-2005, she is an active sponsor of Pony Club activities, and she also has served on the board for IDS (The Indiana Dressage Society). Lee Ann also played a vital role in the development of the Hoosier Horse Park in Johnson County into an equestrian facility.
Whether you are seeking to improve your competitive skills or if you simply desire to better the relationship between you and your horse, LeeAnn’s hope is to provide a supportive, enjoyable environment that honors each rider’s individual goals, hopes, and dreams.
The farm was originally built as a Morgan Breeding, Showing, and Training facility. It has had various disciplines over the years. In 2005 Lee Ann Zobbe moved in and it has become an eventing and dressage facility. Lee Ann had previously the boarding and training business out of Swingin' M Stables (1997-2005) and Bear Creek Farm (1990-1997).
