Who are we?

We are family owned and operated and all of the love and labor comes from my husband Temple, our good friend Karen Martin and me.

Temple and KC Crossfire

Temple Robinson –Temple did not come from a horse background and yet he has become a regular in the halter classes, winning many awards. At home he helps in the care and maintenance of the horses and property. From foal watch, to showing halter, to building fence, his good-natured persistence earns him the admiration of all.

Susan and LH Seirra Splash “Roxxanne”

Susan Robinson – I have had the opportunity to own and train horses for most of my life. Arabians have always been my love, but my first horses and ponies were a mixed lot. It wasn’t until 1974 that I bred and raised my first Half-Arabian. It has been purebred and part-bred Arabians ever since.

Karen with Badja

Karen Martin – Karen is a mainstay for the farm. Without her we would be unable to do the training and showing that we do. She helps with the day-to-day care and runs the operation in our absence.

Andrea going bridleless

Andrea Spurlock  -  We are extremely excited that Andrea Spurlock has joined our team as assistant trainer. It is especially meaningful as Andrea was once one of my 4-H students. After high school and college, Andrea made her way to Washington state and from there to Arizona. After being gone for several years, she is now back in Virginia and has returned to StarCross Farm. What an honor to have her back and in this capacity. Andrea's focus on solid ground work builds a strong foundation for a sane, sensible riding horse. It is a joy to work with her and to see the bond she creates with each horse she trains.


Love and thanks to:

  My Lord God for all of His glorious Grace and Mercy. For creating a creature as marvelous as the horse and for giving me flight without wings.

  My husband and best friend, Temple. His support and dedication goes beyond words.

  To our best friend Karen, she is an absolutely amazing person. Thank you so much for all of your years of hard work and sacrifice.
