Sterling Stables is a small family run warmblood breeding & equestrian center. Each horse/pony is at the farm is treated with a personal touch. On occasion we are able to take horses for boarding, training, consignment or rehab. Instruction is offered on the farm, by several professionals in our area. We do not sell horses frequently produce select sport horses through selective breeding, bring along young sport horses, and OTTB. We may offer one or two each year. The select horses we produce and bring along are of exceptional quality, and have gone on to be wonderful, successful show horses.
The farm is owned and operated by Debby Sterling and her husband Jon. Debby has grown up in the horse industry with the guidance of her mother, TB trainer/breeder Judy Cook. Judy operates River Run Farm, which is adjacent to Sterling Stables. Throughout her youth, Debby exercised racehorses and broke-in thoroughbred babies for the racetrack along side her mother. She has reschooled many OTTB’s (Off Track Thoroughbred’s) for the show ring. In addition to working with racehorses, she began competing in equestrian events in 1973. Her equestrian career began in the hunter ring, with some dabbling in western riding as well, and later expanded to the jumper ring in 1982. Not limited to the hunter/jumper circuit, she has also evented in the Delmarva region. Her energy is now concentrated on her family, working on the farm, breeding and bringing along young warmbloods, reschooling OTTB, and participating in NJ/PA hunter paces/paper chases. Her husband Jon is a former Polo player, and seasoned farrier who travel to many counties for clients throughout New Jersey.
