About Us

Rolling Stone Farm is located in Slatington, Pennsylvania, and is convenient to the Lehigh Valley International Airport, New York and Philadelphia. Visitors are welcome by appointment only.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a carefully managed environment in which to produce a number of well bred warmblood horses each year. Our goal is to produce athletic and healthy individuals who are able to excel in dressage and jumping with both amateur and professional riders alike. The key to this is a focus on rideability, good gaits and exceptional temperaments. Many RSF horses are now in training and winning across the country, and several of Gold Luck's oldest foals are poised to make their FEI debuts in the coming year.

Our breeding program includes quality mares with impeccable bloodlines, including several who won championships at their respective mare inspections. All mares are carefully selected to produce outstanding foals when bred to elite Hanoverian and Oldenburg (GOV) stallions, including our own stallion, Gold Luck. We have many of his offspring available for sale, including weanlings and yearlings as well as a few select broodmares. We also usually have an outstanding selection of riding horses for sale.



Our People

Owners Mo and Jim Swanson
Mo and Jim have been raising warmblood sport horses for over 20 years, with a particular focus on Hanoverians for much of that time.

Mo is a judge for the Oldenburg Horse Breeder’s Society (GOV) on its yearly inspection tours. She makes numerous tours to Germany and has extensive contacts and friends there. She is on the Board of Directors of the Mid-Atlantic Hanoverian Breeders Association (MAHB), a successful regional breed club, and she is one of their founding members. She originated and has helped to organize their Annual Fall Mare Show.

Jim always regarded the farm as an oasis from the corporate world and with his recent retirement, he can always be counted on to keep things running smoothly, help handle the youngsters or show off one of the stallions in hand.

Young Horse Trainer - Cara Klothe
She is a USDF Bronze and Silver medalist who has had experience in breaking warmbloods and ponies and even did western wrangling in CO for a summer! We are lucky to have her here at RSF. Look for her in the show ring on RSF horses.
Dawn Coffey
Dawn comes to work every day with a smile on her face and a she also has a wonderful laugh. Nothing is too much for her to do. She manages her own large farm in addition to working at RSF.
Jesse Fackelman
We are so happy to welcome Jesse Fackelman to our staff here at RSF. Jesse is a life-long horse lover and a super hard worker. Her job is handling the foals and leading them out daily from their stalls to the pasture as well as general barn work. She always has a smiling face and is game to help out in any way we need her.
Taylor Hoffman
Taylor started working for RSF after she and her father came up the driveway one day to say hello. They are close by neighbors. Taylor and her dad came to see a foal being born and Taylor was hooked. They also came to watch our Oldenburg MPT and inspection. Jim and I were impressed with her cooperative nature and her smiling face. She always goes above and beyond
doing what she is told to do. She now is a regular part time employee at RSF, helping with the evening feeding and cleaning stalls on the weekends. She is a junior at our local high school where she does track and prom committee as well as being an excellent student. We are lucky to have her!
Kim Kobryn
Kim Kobryn has over 22 years of riding experience in a variety of disciplines and a Bachelor's Degree in Large Animal Science from Delaware Valley University. She runs her own small farm where she breeds, and has competed her horses at USEF and USDF recognized competitions from in hand through FEI. Her first homebred, Elite Mare Candidate Donatella CF, has helped her earn her USDF Bronze and Silver medals. Kim also earned her USDF Performance Awards in First and Second levels. She has several years of experience in training young horses in hand, backing and starting horses and ponies for Dressage and cross training, and preparing horses for performance tests and keurings.  Kim strongly believes in continuing education and regularly takes riding lessons, attends clinics, lectures, and seminars in all aspects of horses, from riding and training to breeding and health care. 
Young Horse Breaker and farrier for the riding horses - Anfy Sutliff
Andy is an experienced western rider and I can tell you he is a gifted young horse breaker.  He starts them in western tack with a snaffle bridle and transitions them to dressage tack at the end of the breaking period.  He has soft hands, a very balanced seat and the horses he breaks end up quiet and confident.  He is also a very good farrier who learned under one of the biggest names in farrier work in the dressage world. 
Vet Clinic - All Points Equine
Our regular vet clinic is All Points Equine.  We love working with Kristen Fenstermacher and Tera Romig.  Here is their website:


Our Facilities
Constructed in 2000, our 40 acre facility is complete with indoor/outdoor rings, breeding areas, a lovely new barn with 16 large box stalls, oversized turnout sheds and acres of rolling pastures and paddocks. A heated office and lab is equipped with everything necessary for the proper preparation of A/I and semen shipments.
Our Breeding Program
At Rolling Stone Farm, the bloodlines of our stallions and mares are carefully matched to produce the finest foals possible. Our mares are carefully monitored throughout their pregnancies to produce the healthiest foals possible. After the foals are born, they are handled daily, placed on a proper worming schedule and receive regular farrier and veterinary attention. All of our horses are turned out daily in large pastures and in appropriate age groups to foster correct physical development, as well as good socialization and herd interaction skills. Our foals develop into healthy and loving young horses.
