Carolinas Equestrian Fox Point Farm Tommy Serio I am from Culpeper, VA, and grew up watching all the great Hall of Fame hunter riders show their horses at the big old VA shows like Upperville, Middleburg and Keswick. One of my biggest idols was Tommy Serio. The way he could quietly usher a beautiful TB around a 4’ course was just magical. Titusville and Mind Games were two of my favorites. Of course, Two For One and Superflash, he rode after Charlie Weaver, were also spectacular.

When I found out last year that Tommy had moved from Keswick to Aberdeen (Southern Pines) NC, I had to see if I could get help from him. He was super kind and invited me to come for a lesson. It was like being home again, those simple VA horseman ways of saying and doing things.
