Hello I am Maggie, owner and operator of Lone Prairie PHS! I'm an east central Illinois native, college graduate, horse enthusiast and lover of all things turquoise. I spent the early part of my professional career in commercial and Ag banking, but have spent the past five years in the food ingredient industry as a grain merchandiser specializing in producer risk management. However, in September 2018, I was able to devote all my time to Lone Prairie!
My horse career began at a young age showing AQHA, APHA and POAC halter and pleasure horses competitively throughout the U.S. I also raised and showed commercial club calves and Chester White pigs for 4-H and FFA. During this time, I was also a member of the nationally ranked Illinois State 4-H Horse Judging Team, which led to a junior college scholarship in Livestock Judging. With my team, I traveled to stock shows in Denver, Houston, Kansas City and was high individual in sheep at the North American Livestock Exposition in Louisville, KY.
I currently travel extensively throughout the Midwest competing in barrel racing. In 2016, I finished in the top five at the NBHA Great Lakes National Open, was a 2017 and 2018 Bonus Race Finals World qualifier, the 2017 Reserve Open 4D Champion at the Illinois State NBHA Show and finished in the Top 5 of the 2017 Better Barrel Races Eastern Region.
I have passion for performance equine nutrition and therapy. I have worked hard to gain a vast knowledge of information and education, which I hope to share with you here!
I currently reside in central Illinois, with my husband Shawn, two dogs and two horses.
