A San Diego native, Eric has spent nearly his entire life immersed in the equine industry. As a junior rider, Eric won numerous national and world titles under the direction of Bob and Anne Speck’s Rancho Del Mar. After graduating from The Bishop’s School in La Jolla, Eric moved to Missouri to study Equine Science and became a professional at age 17.
While living in Missouri, he worked for the famed Callaway Hills Stables, where he started, trained, showed, and sold over $1,000,000 in horses by the age of 22. Upon returning to Southern California in 2008, Eric and his wife Austin opened Majestic Farms LLC, a high end Saddlebred and Morgan training barn located in San Marcos. They continue their winning ways in both breeds and successfully compete at the World Championships each year. To date, horses and riders under their direction have won over 15 National, Reserve World, and World titles.
Eric brings to the real estate world a working knowledge of the horse industry which includes experience with breeding facilities, show venues, training barns, and boarding facilities. His extensive experience in negotiations and his will to ascertain solutions to nearly any challenge make him an asset. Similar to the horses he trains, Eric approaches each real estate transaction objectively and is able to assess the strengths, weaknesses, and potential of a given property.
Eric is currently the United Professional Horseman’s Association Chapter 1 Chairperson, sits on the Board of Directors for the Twin Oaks Valley Equestrian Association, and participates regularly at the Twin Oaks Valley Sponsor Group meetings.
