Owners

Craig and Corinne have owned Windswept Farm for over 15 years.  When they first purchased the farm, it was safe to say it was in need of a lot of TLC.  They have truly put their blood, sweat, and tears into making Windswept what it is today.  They continually work to improve and update the farm every chance they get.  Craig is a master craftsman and gardener- growing everything from organic veggies to the hay the horses eat.  Corinne manages the office for all of Windswept.

Mackenzie DelVecchio

Barn Manager and Working Student

 

Mackenzie graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Hew Hampshire in May 2019 with a Bachelor of Science in Equine Studies: Therapeutic Riding and a Bachelor of Arts in English. During her time at UNH Mackenzie earned her PATH Intl. Therapeutic Riding Instructor Certification in 2017 and taught in the UNH Therapeutic Riding Program under the direction of Cindy Burke during her junior and senior years. Mackenzie was also a member of the UNH Intercollegiate Dressage Team where she completed with her teammates at Upper Training before moving up to First Level for her senior year. She was elected as a captain of the team which was an honor and responsibility she loved taking on. 

Mackenzie began riding at a very young age as her family has always been connected to horses. Her parents placed her on the back of a horse before she could walk and she has not stopped since. Growing up her sisters and her enjoyed riding their ponies in the field of their home in Exeter, RI. She began taking lessons at the age of three and did a mix of balanced seat with some jumping before deciding to focus on dressage. She had the opportunity to compete at Dressage4Kids with her Rhinelander gelding Teddy. While at UNH she was able to ride Cindy Burke’s American Warmblood Kodiak and competed him to earn her first level scores towards her USDF bronze medal. 

Mackenzie is very grateful to have been offered the opportunity to learn from Kelly and the whole team at Windswept Farm. She is excited to progress in her riding skills and work towards becoming an equine professional. Mackenzie is looking forward to accomplishing her current goals with the help of Kelly and setting new ones for the future.  She cannot wait to see where this experience takes her!
