Frank and Lisa Ahearn got their passion for horses through their daughter, Sophia, Sophia is fourteen and has been riding for seven years at what is now Saddle River Equestrian. Sophia’s riding has progressed to where she is now competing at Hits, WEF, Gladstone, Lake Placid and other top-rated shows. Her success has hinged on a combination of her steadfast work ethic, quality training, coaching and having quality horses to show. Sophia’s first pony, Hope is the reason behind the name Esperanza (Spanish for Hope). Frank and Lisa decided to start Esperanza Imports to bring over only the highest quality horses from Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany.
