Nancy Brown

Nancy started as a beginner rider only five years ago and has grown to advanced levels in jumping and flat through the schooling lessons at Lord Stirling Stable exclusively. She is now the proud owner of a 6 yr old Standardbred cross, named Halifax.

In 1979, Nancy was among the first classes of women to be admitted and attend the United States Military Academy, West Point. After having a successful career in real estate franchise sales with Realogy, she was further educated at University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business in Executive Leadership while serving as Vice President of Operations for Coldwell Banker Commercial.

Volunteering in all areas of Lord Stirling Stable, and Friends of Lord Stirling Stable, Nancy finds great joy in assisting with Somerset County’s Therapeutic Riding Adapted Instruction at Lord Stirling Stable (T.R.A.I.L.S.) program.

Carol Weingaertner


  • Gmail

Carol started riding as an adult, and has been doing so for more than 30 years, exclusively at Lord Stirling Stable.  Her professional career includes 30-plus years in Information Systems at Prudential Insurance Company, where her fields of expertise were project management, executive status reporting, requirements management/documentation, and process implementation.  

Carol’s education includes an Associate’s degree from the State University of New York Agricultural and Technical College at Farmingdale (she was a techie, not an aggie), and Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the College of Saint Elizabeth, where she also served as an adjunct professor for several years.  She holds a Master’s Certificate in IT Project Management from George Washington University.  

In addition to riding, Carol has been a regular volunteer for the Somerset County Therapeutic Riding Adapted Instruction at Lord Stirling Stable (T.R.A.I.L.S.) program for nearly 30 years. 


Louise Bridge

  • Gmail

Louise has been luckily enough to have been around horses from a very young age. She couldn’t wait to begin riding lessons at 5 years old. The weekly riding lessons were the highlight of the week and after her family relocated to New Jersey it was a priority that they found a stable and began lessons – they found Lord Stirling Stables and the rest you could say is history.  Louise progressed through the levels and was a member of the Junior Drill Team.  In addition to riding, Louise has been volunteering with the T.R.A.I.L.S Program since 2002 (with a break while at University). 

Louise holds a BA Hons Degree in Business Management (which included two years of Accountancy) and a Bachelor of Laws. She was the Student Representative each year for her Program’s Undergraduate Class. Louise is used to working under pressure within a regulated environment and ensuing matters are attended to in an efficient, compliant and timely manner while embracing and adapting to the technological advancements.
