Andrea and Tish met each other in 1998 while riding Reining horses in Arizona. They got married in May of 2002 and quickly immersed themselves into the Reining industry in every aspect. Both Andrea and Tish consider themselves extremely lucky to be able to work together as a team, raise a family and be involved in the horse community. Being able to spend their days on the ranch, both working towards the same goals but in separate capacities, and still be involved with their two young boys is a dream come true.
While Andrea manages the training and show program, Tish manages the office side of the business, five days a week. Fortunately for both Andrea and Tish, as each day develops they get to share lunch together and break for quick stories with the boys about their adventures around the ranch.
At home, Andrea is the cook and always makes great family dinners where they get a chance to sit, enjoy the meal, and talk about their day. When the days are long in the summer, they enjoy riding motor cycles in the evening at their motocross track next door. Family trips are also a “must” once a year. When time permits, the entire Fappani family loves going to the beach, catching an extreme sports event or going to the mountains in the winter.
