About Topsider Farm

Topsider Farm is a privately owned 18-acre equestrian facility located in College Station, Texas.

 

Established in 1991 by Michele Voorhees as her training barn, Topsider Farm quickly built its reputation as one of the premier facilities in the area. Over the past 32 years, the farm has hosted many events, including USDF Recognized shows, clinics, and schooling shows. It has been a place of learning and growth for hundreds of horses, riders, and staff dedicated to the art of dressage and high-level horse care.

The property was purchased in 2019 by McKenzie Mull, a long-time client and friend of Michele's, who managed it as a boarding facility until turning it private in the spring of 2024. In addition to building a residence on the property, she plans to continue to upgrade the facility to better accommodate select equestrian events in the future.

Riding Lessons

We are proud to host our founder, Michele Voorhees, a USDF-Certified dressage instructor and trainer. She has 40+ years of professional equine experience teaching different age groups and experience levels. Michele has a Bachelor's degree in Equine Studies with education emphasizing teaching, training, and management.

 

Her students have been successful from Training Level to F.E.I. when competing at schooling shows, Regional Finals, and even North American Young Rider Championships. Michele served as Chef de' Equipe for the USDF Region 9 Young Rider Dressage Team as well as the Region 9 JR/YR Coordinator for several years. She was honored to receive the USDF Region 9 Horseperson of the Year Award in 2004.

All lessons with Michele are private and by appointment only. Trailer-ins are welcome with current Coggins.
