Niki Chaffin

My name is Nikole Chaffin, and I am 35 years old. I am married, and have a 6 year old horse crazy daughter. We love to go trail riding as a family and camp with our horses and dogs. I graduated from Otsego High School in 1993, and have made my living working with horses ever since.
We currently have 3 dogs – Tank, a St. Bernard/Akita cross, Bella, a Bernese Mountain Dog, and Pepper, an Australian Shepherd/German Shepherd cross.
The 15 horses we have consist of Standardbreds, Spotted Drafts, 1 Quarter Horse, and 2 Ponies. My grandpa and 3 of my uncles have been racing Standardbreds for as long as I can remember. In 1993, I went to work for a national level Arabian show barn for 4 years, where I traveled the United States. In 1996, I moved to Ithaca, MI and worked for my uncle who had a 40 horse racing stable. I moved back to the Grand Rapids area in 1999 to manage a large Standardbred breeding farm in Belmont. In 2008, I started working with Jen, in addition to the breeding farm (on a much smaller scale). That brings us to current – I am working with Jen 4 days a week and would not change a thing.
