Tom and Ruth Reininger, Owners, Farm Manager

Tom and Ruth

Ruth and her sisters grew up in the house at the stables. From the 1930’s until his retirement, Ruth’s father kept a dairy herd on what is now the Walnut Creek Stable.  Ruth’s professional career was that of a teacher, most recently 3rd grade. Ruth now is a daily presence at the stable. Her ‘students’ now have four legs. Tom works as the Farm Manager for the stable. He retired in 2003 from a career working with adults with developmental disabilities.  Maintenance of the facility complex and grounds is his daily work.  In his ‘spare’ time he does ride WCS’s Oldenburg mare ‘Serendipity’. Tom is also active in the local dressage community. They have two children and five grandchildren. Ruth and Tom live across the road from the stable.
