Spencer Day began his equestrian career early in life, taking his first ride at the age of five. He developed his riding skills during his junior exhibitor career under renowned trainer Jan Lukens and as a teenager spent one summer in South Africa working for Martin Pienaar. He later completed internships during his college years with Mitch Clark and Rob Tanner and went on to work for Ed and Lisa Millet, David Rand, and Ken and Dana Swanson at Tara Farm. Spencer’s wealth of hands-on experience is complemented nicely with a B.S. in Equestrian Science degree from William Woods University.
Horses have also been a lifelong affair for Adriana (Liberty) Day, who jumped in the saddle at 4 years old and went on to an illustrious junior exhibitor career under trainer David Rand, winning multiple World’s Grand Champion, National Champion and Reserve World’s Champion titles. She continued her association with David Rand, interning and working for him during high school and part of college. Tara Farm became Adriana’s home for two summer internships while she attended Peace College in Raleigh, North Carolina, where she earned a B.A. in Liberal Studies with a minor in Leadership Studies. Recently, Adriana also spent some time working with and gaining additional expertise from Mary Carlton in Michigan.
