Melynda Legg - Owner
A native of Northern Virginia, Melynda started riding horses at the age of eight, and chose the horse business as a career because it was always a great love of hers. Acquiring the farm, now known as "Century Manor Farm" because of its house built over a hundred years ago, was her life's dream.
Melynda has shown successfully for more than 25 years. She has been teaching the equestrian arts since 1985, specializing in the Hunters and Equitation, but also teaches the "Balance Seat" and lower levels of Dressage. As an active breeder of horses, Melynda has an advantage in equine expertise. She not only cares for and works with the mares, she also helps to deliver the foals and starts their training as they take their first breath. She has trained horses of all types, helping to start them, and in the process, trains their new owners in horsemanship as well.
In her first year as Coach of the Century Manor Farm Equestrian Team, who compete in the National Capital Equitation League (NCEL), Melynda received the "2002 Reserve Coach of the Year Award," for her talents in the show ring and with her students. In 2008 she received the Coach of the year for both A and B teams.
In 2010 Melynda received the Forrest Linton Sportsmanship award for Virginia at the VHSA Championship show.
