The History Of Heritage

Andre and Michael Dignelli bought Heritage Farm in 1994 with the dream of creating a top-notch facility to train riders and horses at the nation's top-level of competition. That's exactly what they've done.

As a junior and in the beginning of his competitive showing days, Andre took lessons on this very property under Bobby and Peggy Cariddi. Then, it was called Primrose Farm. Years later when it went on the market, Andre and Michael made the decision to purchase it as partners—and they named it Heritage Farm in honor of their dedicated familial involvement and the love of horses that the brothers share.

It started with 54 stalls and has now grown to over 100.

Andre said, "Buying Heritage Farm was the best thing we ever did, because we have control of our own destiny. We have a state-of-the-art facility that we control. We have the best atmosphere in which we can develop top horses and top riders."
