Let's put a face with the voice! Maria is who you talk to when you call the practice. She has been helping keep Garden State Equine organized since December of 2016. Maria was born and raised in New Jersey and has been involved with horses for nearly her entire life. She raised, trained, and raced standardbreds for years and now enjoys watching her daughter show her off-the-track standardbred.
In addition to working for Garden State Equine, Maria has run a boarding facility in New Egypt for more than 30 years. On the rare occasion the Maria gets a free moment, she enjoys to golf, having helped her family run a golf course prior to being involved with horses.
Alexa Forman Veterinary Assistant
Alexa started with Garden State Equine in 2017. From 2019-2021, she worked at large equine and mixed animal veterinary practices and managed an equine embryo transfer facility in Texas. We are lucky enough that Alexa returned to New Jersey in February 2021.
Alexa grew up in New Jersey and was an active member of her local 4-H, horse judging team, and rode hunter/ jumpers. After graduating college from West Texas A&M with a B.S. of Agriculture Media and Communications, she returned to New Jersey, where she had a horse training business. Besides assisting at Garden State Equine, Alexa enjoys training her two young horses, keeping her retired mare out of trouble and going for walks with her dog, Ruger.
