Owner & Trainer/Instructor

Karen Singer

A graduate from Redlands, Karen has known she would be a horse trainer since she was 12 years old. Growing up she rode all breeds and  disciplines of horses, starting out on the American Saddlebred. She got  her first job working horses at the age of 16 for a local woman then  began training with Kelly Kraegel of Cottonwood Creek Ranch in 2009 where she  got her first Morgan horse. Her love for the Morgan took her all the  way out to the UVM Morgan Horse Farm in Weybridge, Vermont where she  learned from Steve Davis for a short period of time. A warmer environment was calling in Escondido, California working for Miller Equestrian Services as the assistant trainer and instructor.

While at the Miller's she learned the fine art of teaching all varieties of  students from beginners, mild handicaps and competitors at the national level.

Karen owns and operates the lesson and training program at Laine Brook Farm established in 2016. Karen and the love of her life, Patrick, married in June of 2017 shortly after buying the new farm property.

Assistant Instructor

Alex Goins

Alex has been riding and showing horses since she was just 7 years old. She took a break in her high school years to focus on academics and showing sheep. Throughout high school Alex worked as a camp and after school  program counselor, where her love of helping and teaching stems from.

After high school, she joined the Redlands Community College Equestrian team and competed on their prestigious IHSA show team. Incidentally this is how Karen and Alex first crossed paths. She bought Batman and began her journey as an instructor and horse trainer.

Her dream to be a well rounded horse woman has taken her down many paths, from being named  the 2014 Yukon Rodeo Queen to working with some of the biggest names in  the Pinto/Paint, Quarter Horse and Morgan show horse world. Alex has  worked with many barns such as Cottonwood Creek Ranch and the Stonecrest Wildes Show team. She is now under the guidance of Karen Singer and  Laine Brook Farm.
