The Team

Jessica Lyman - Owner/Manager

Jessica is the heart and soul behind Traumhof. She is how the whole farm has come about as it was her "dream. In addition to running the day-to-day business, keeping the books, and managing the team, she is in charge of the care and feeding of the horses and is the overall go-to person when horse care issues come up! Jessica works with Dynamite brand feed and keeps the horses literally "glowing" from her feeding expertise. With many years of grooming for top professional show jumpers under her belt, horse-care is her passion!



Nicki Grandia - Trainer

Nicki Grandia is a USDF Silver, Bronze, and Gold Medalist. She just finished up an incredibly successful show season including a 5th place finish GP Special CDI at the Del Mar National horse show, winning the Oregon Dressage Society's Grand Prix Championship, the NWDC Grand Prix Championship, and both the GAIG Region 6 Grand Prix and Grand Prix Freestyle Championships. Nicki will continue to train with Shannon and Steffen Peters, with trips planned to Arroyo del Mar in the spring as well as at their clinics at Traumhof (November 2010 for Shannon and May 2011 for Steffen). She has also been selected as a demonstration rider for the Janet Foy / Debbie McDonald Dressage Symposium at Donida and will be riding in the Lendon Gray Clinic in November at Devonwood.

Kevin Fink - Owner/Go-To-Guy

Kevin is Jessica's husband and does a lot of the maintenance and hands on work here at the farm along with planning out the structure of the farm business. He pretty much can do anything from leading an unruly horse, to fixing a broken tractor, to managing the technology for a multi-million dollar company. Kevin works (more than) full time at Demand Media and when he's not working there, he's working here at Traumhof!


Ian Fink - Boy genius and owner of Penny Pony

Ian is Jessica and Kevin's son and pretty much keeps the farm on the straight and narrow... and reminds everyone when they swear!
