Alejandro Cardona - Stallion Manager
Riley Law - Office Manager
Riley was born and raised on a small quarter horse breeding farm just south of Norman, in Washington, Oklahoma. It was there that she first discovered a passion for all things equine. Riley’s mother Renee, shared with her a love for hunter/jumpers and they competed regularly with their horses throughout her childhood. From her father Walt and brother Jordan, Riley learned to appreciate and understand the importance of bloodlines. She learned proper mating’s often brought out the best characteristics of both the sire and the dam of a horse. Above all, a genuine love and deep respect for the animals themselves was ingrained in her from the very beginning. Reflecting on her childhood, she remembers,“Some of my fondest memories are of being with my mother in the foaling stalls watching babies come into this world. We traveled to many different stud farms taking mares to be bred. My family has always been involved with horses in one way or another and being able to continue with that lifestyle is truly a blessing for me.”Eventually, Riley’s path diverged from the horse world and she ended up attending the University of Oklahoma where she focused on history, ethnic conflict, and religion and obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in History in 2011.
During the last 18 years, Riley has worked mostly in the home health care industry working as a receptionist, personnel assistant, scheduler, and most recently as the office manager for a large home health company branch in Norman, OK. In addition to home health Riley also has experience as a hiring manager, where she completed an astonishing 2000 interviews during her time with a large warehouse and then as a title clerk for a local dealership in Oklahoma City. “I have been very lucky over the years to have worked for some really amazing people and I will always be grateful to them but none of those opportunities were where my heart lies. I love horses! They are my true passion and when I learned there was an opportunity to work for an industry legend such as Bob Moore Farms, I jumped at the chance! I’m so grateful to be able to work in an industry that has always been so close to my heart.”
