Pam Prince

Pam Prince and her partner, Phil Meinholz run Meinpferde Farm in Deerfield, WI. Together, they run a busy riding school and breeding program. Not only does Pam devote much her time to teaching and training, she also is  a Geneticist at the University of Wisconsin and a mom! Pam is training 3-time Olympian, Suzy Favor Hamilton, for ARIAT Jumping with the Stars at the Midwest Horse Fair on Sunday, April 18th.

On a recent visit, Pam introduced many of her horses. It is obvious Pam has a big heart. Her herd includes some rescues mixed in with the warmbloods.

Suzy and Pam Having a Blast!

Keeping up with Suzy!

Suzy Favor Hamilton is raring to go. The three-time Olympian had her first lesson with Pam Prince at Meinpferd Farm first thing in the morning. Her horse, Iphicles or “Iph” was Phil’s (Pam’s partner) jumper for many years.

Pam, Iph and Suzy.

Nowadays Iph, an extremely sweet warmblood gelding, spends his time teaching people to ride and jump. He is the perfect companion and teammate for Suzy. Iphicles is named after one of Hercules’ half brothers in Greek Mythology.

Suzy learns to steer.

Suzy, with her striking good looks, was the picture of elegance in her Ariat togs, boots and Troxel helmet. It was a chilly morning and she wore a polar fleece top embroidered with the logo of a Madison speed skating club. Her friend and Ariat Jumping with the Stars! competitor, Casey FitzRandolph introduced Suzy to speed skating. Now they will both be learning a sport that is not about speed- but about rhythm and control. Suzy is an incredible athlete! She catches on fast! After the lesson Suzy sped off to meet a client. Go Suzy!

Pam Prince is a geneticist and Meinpferd Farm (which means “my horse” in German) is the perfect breeding ground for RPSI (Rheinland Pfalz-Saar International) sport horses. Pam and Phil also have an active lesson program and boarding clients.
