About the Farm: Topline Farm began its operations in 2007. The farm is owned and managed by Katie Wigness, with help from her family, including her husband Kris and father Ron.
Our Philosophy: While most barns can provide the basics, we strive to care for your horse in the best manner possible - like you would if you were at the barn all the time. The emphasis at Topline Farm is on the safety and well-being of the horse.
Katie's teaching and training philosophy is much the same - safety is the number one priority. She strives to challenge her students and horses while at all times maintaining their safety and well-being. Katie is also a firm believer in simply enjoying the process of riding, learning, improving and spending time with the horses.
About Katie: Katie has over forty years' experience with horses. Katie has concentrated her riding over the years on foxhunting, show jumpers, and dressage. She previously worked for the Essex Hunt Club, exercising staff hunt horses, as well as for various hunt members, exercising their hunters. At college, Katie rode and competed on the intercollegiate team during all four years. After graduate school, Katie competed on the A circuit, showing in the jumpers at major shows up and down the east coast for several years. Since opening Topline Farm, Katie has focused more on dressage, having competed throughout New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania.
