About Us

Chuck and Lauri Givens are familiar faces in the AQHA world. Married with two daughters, Brittany and Kelsey, they reside in Richmond, Kentucky and have exhibited quarter horses since their youth.   The thing about living a life surrounded by horses, is that the love seems to be in the blood and is passed from generation to generation. Their daughters have followed in the family footsteps and are establishing their own legacies in the business. Their oldest daughter, Brittany Givens Heyer didn’t even let motherhood slow her down having just purchased her first broodmare and is now in the process of training it to be a champion. Meanwhile, their youngest daughter Kelsey is a graduate of St. Catherine’s College and member of the management team at Cracker Barrel. When Kelsey is not at work, she loves to spend her free time announcing all the action at horse shows in the surrounding area.
 
Building on a family tradition of World Champions and Congress winners, Chuck and Lauri specialize in Pole and Barrel horses.  Together they have trained and exhibited AQHAWorld and Reserve World Champions, Congress winners, Palomino World and Reserve World Champions, and several AQHA Hi-Point Awards, including four 2006 Hi Point titles.  They continue to breed, train and offer World Class horses with today’s most desirable and proven bloodlines.  They also remain interested in Youth Exhibitors and still remain active in 4-H.  Brittany and Kelsey have won numerous State 4-H titles. If you are interested in quality performance horses for world class competition in Open, Amateur or Youth events, or if you’re interest is 4-H or Open Show mounts, come visit us.  We are conveniently located in central Kentucky, just minutes from I-75.  You will find us in the Arena every day and most nights.  Our goal is to continue to produce winning horses through selective breeding, hands-on training and individual attention to each horse. 

We also breed, race and sell Thoroughbreds and always have a  nice selection of  weanlings, yearlings and broodmares.  Call us if you would like to come to the farm for inspection of our racing prospects.
