The Facility; Nick Valentine, owner and trainer, out of Francois Gauthiers first class facility "Sunny Pines Farm", offers excellent care and environment, to bring out the full potential in your horse.

The farm houses large box stalls, many turn outs, covered round pen, a covered indoor and an outdoor track, multiple show barns, and tack shop.

Our horses are very well taken care of by feeding the highest quality alfalfa hay, grain and a suppliments program to keep them in top condition.

Valentine was priviledged to work for Francois for seven years at the beginning of his reining career. He is excited for the future; focusing on showing, training, sales, coaching, and clinics.
