Meet our People
At Stolen Aces Farm, our team is full of some of the most dedicated, fun, and hardworking people you'll meet. We love to compete and while we take it seriously, we don't let the competitive nature of the sport stop us from enjoying ourselves and making the most of our time at a show. Apart from those mentioned below, we also have some unsung heroes like Andreas, Adan and Rogelio, who keep the whole barn up and running day and night whether at home or at a show.
Head Trainer and General Manager
Andy Marlett has been training horses since he was 12 years old. He studied Equine Science at the University of Minnesota where he met Morgans for the first time, and later opened a barn in 1987 in Minnesota training Morgan Horses. Andy became the head trainer for Stolen Aces Farm in 2016 and is busy using his incredible talents to develop the many horses we have bred and purchased.
At the 2020 Morgan Grand National, Andy brought 3 homebred and trained horses, Stolen Kiss, Stolen Valor and Stolen Perspective and all three won world champion titles. He also trained two other horses which won national champion titles, Get Dreamin' and Heritage Hollow Rapture. Previously, Andy has won the very prestigious Open English Pleasure World Championship on Cabot French Pepper and the Open Western Pleasure World Championship on Tracemark Tapestry.
