About the Farm

Established in 2012, Kaleidoscope Farm was started by owners Toby and Jessie. What started as a dream has now expanded into a successful farm that is home to a wide variety of animals. Learn more about our story + our philosophy.

About the Owners

Toby and Jessie met in the summer of 2004 while working as camp counselors. Together, they taught riding lessons and cared for the horses. Toby was returning from Australia for his second year as camp staff but had worked as a lifeguard previously. 

All of the experience Jessie collected led up to Toby and Jessie purchasing their very own farm in 2012. As soon as they got their keys, they began breaking ground to build what Kaleidoscope Farm is today. These days you will find them raising their children, Knox and Lilou, still working and building their dream day by day.

More About Jessie

 At the young age of 8, Jessie finally convinced her mom she was serious about wanting horses in her life. Her mom agreed that if she could commit to one year of riding lessons, she would consider buying her a horse. It didn’t take long for Jessie to convince her mom that she was horse crazy. Jessie spent as much time as possible in the barn grooming and cleaning – whatever it took to be near the horses. 

Major, a gray Arabian gelding, was Jessie’s first horse. Riding lessons turned into pony club, 4h, OHSET, local horse shows, playdays, parades, and camps. If it was horse related, Jessie was wanting a part in it. After graduating, Jessie stayed local and attend Linn-Benton Community College. She studied Animal Science with a focus in Equine Management, and was a part of the young horse training program. 

After completing her degree, she got accepted into The Kentucky Equine Management Program where she was placed on a commercial Thoroughbred Breeding farm in Versailles, Kentucky. Jessie focused on breaking and training young racehorses. After the completion of her internship, Jessie returned home to Oregon to find her niche in the horse industry. 

Over the next several years Jessie worked as a vet assistant at a large Equine Hospital, a horse camp counselor, and eventually riding program coordinator. She achieved riding instructors’ certifications, worked as a professional groom on the West coast jumper circuit, managed show barn operations, coached OHSET and was a 4H leader. She also began running her own riding and training program.

Our Philosophy

We believe that every horse should be well cared for after their career has come to an end, no matter what age they may be. Our goal is to provide each of our residents with customized care, which is why we only offer limited retirement spots. We have personally built the farm from the ground up, and truly love what we do.

As of 2023, the farm has expanded to include raising Aberdeen cattle for beef, Idaho pasture pigs for pork, Chickens for eggs and meat, and gardening for fresh veggies and more.

 

Absolutely top-quality care for your horse. From personalized grooming sessions to custom feeding schedules and diet, this facility has everything that a horse owner is looking for in care and comfort.
