Alan started Lohman Stables Inc. in 2004 – a hunter/jumper barn designed to help riders and horses of allages excel in the show ring. Originally from Waynesboro, PA, Alan became interested in riding through his grandfather, Tuttie Chadwell. Alan graduated from Western Maryland College (now McDaniel College). After riding as a junior with Carolyn Krome and Ken Krome at Persimmon Tree Farm in Westminster, MD, Alan became their assistant trainer. The training and industry involvement that Alan received from the the Kromes prepared him to start his own training, showing and sales business in Poolesville, MD in 2004. Alan has his R-judging card in Hunters and Equitation.
Alan also course designs frequently through out the country at shows such as Pin Oak Charity Horse Show (TX), Pennsylvania National, Duke Children’s Benefit Horse Show (NC), Keswick Hunt Club Horse Show (VA), Maryland Horse and Pony Show, Vermont Summer Festival and Devon. Alan has qualified numerous horses, ponies and riders for USEF Pony Finals, Devon, Pennsylvania National, Washington International, and The National Horse Show as well as many local and national medal finals. He has been President of the Maryland Horse Show Association. Alan resides in Poolesville with his wife, Jessi.
In 2009, Kathy started travelling with Lohman Stables up and down the East Coast to shows as our barn manager. Kathy’s up-beat personality is truly appreciated on long horse show days! Her patience is like no-other! We are thankful for all she does for us!
