A Little Bit About Us

Gerri Lundergan began riding when she was 9. Her Dad told her if she saved her money she could buy a pony. Not thinking that a 9 yo would be able to save that in a short time, Dad forgot about the deal. Meanwhile Gerri was busy pet sitting, watching the neighbors houses when they were on vacation , mowing yards, pulling weeds and any other odd job she could do. When she had the money, she let her Dad know. A friend was moving and had to sell her pony. A Deal is a Deal. So Sanford's Jolly Crescent joined the family. Oh, by the way - Dad forgot to tell Mom he had made this deal - But, Gerri still got her pony.
It was to be the beginning of a Lifelong Passion. 
Lets do the Readers Digest Abridged Version-

When asked to make a list of all the horses she has personally owned in her career - the job seemed easy. As she sat down and put pen to paper - she recalled each one, what they taught her, how it shaped her training styles and most of all how it had led her to other Great Trainers to expand her knowledge to learn more. 100 plus horses. And she can tell you about each one.
In the early years her life was spent riding in Bidwell Park in Chico where she grew up. Competing in the local Gymkhanas, riding in the local Drill team - The Chico Bonanza Riders where she was Club President her final year. As she progressed and had other horses offered to her to ride, she moved on to Showing. English and Western classes and her favorite - Trail. All thru High School she was active in FFA garnering awards - Star Green Hand, Sales /Services, Rabbit Production, Horse Production, Public Speaking, 4th in the state of Calif in Public Speaking, and Most Outstanding Sr Ag Student which came from the CSUC Young Farmers with a scholarship. Upon graduating high school, she became a 4H Horse Leader to give back to the kids of the community.
She raised Appaloosas and was active in the Feather River Appaloosa Club and was Club Secretary.
When she moved down to the Lodi/Lockeford area it opened a whole new door to her. Here were all the biggest names in the horse world. The barn she was doing Western lessons in had a young trainer doing Dressage and Hunters. That trainer was Jan Eibling. Gerri sat in on as many lessons and helped assist Jan with horses in training. That dressage knowledge really added to her tool box. Next came the meeting with Pat Parelli. A young and up coming trainer, Gerri put on several of his first clinics and attended as many as possible. Plus since Pat was a close neighbor, she sat took every opportunity to sit and watch as much as possible. Ray Hunt was the next Trainer to come into her life. Meeting him at Pats moved her career forward. It was the missing link she had been looking for.
Next She leased a Cutting mare and joined the Clements Cutting club where she was Show Secretary. What she gained from her cutting trainer added more tips and tricks to her growing tool box of knowledge
Still active in 4H - she became a Community Club leader and the Horse Project Leader.
The 4H Program had an Extension Agent who was Argentine Cavalery and was offering Free Dressage to all 4H leaders so they could take it back to their members. Gerri was eager to jump on board for this. Gregory Billikopf was just what she was looking for to expand her Dressage knowldge.
Her students were showing heavily and she extended her breeding program she purchased the Quarter Horse stallion California Trouble.
Now operating a 55 stall facility and teaching 85 students plus standing 5 stallions, showing 42 weekends a year of Appaloosa shows, AHSA and of course the her favorite Calif Fair Show circuits her students were never out of the ribbons. 
Plus raising her 2 boys. 
It all came to a screaching halt when she & her husband divorced. She moved to Florida with her boys and started over.
Life was simpler,  she only brought her stallion and one broodmare.
She kept showing, doing 4H and raising her boys.
In 2011 her oldest son was killed in a motorcyle accident. She has taken the past 5 years to regroup, re charge and is now back to teaching which is her first Love.
