Bret grew up in Ohio and Kentucky and knew from an early age that he wanted to be a horse trainer. He started working as an assistant to the legendary Merrill Murray right out of high school, and also had the opportunity to train under Tom Moore, Larry Bacon, and Tom Ferrebee before starting his own business. He founded Bret Day Stables, later Grey Ridge Farm, with Susi in the early 1990s and moved the operation to its current location in Versailles, Kentucky in 1997.

Susi grew up in Florida and began riding at a young age with Bud Gray, instantly falling in love with the American Saddlebred. As an amateur, she trained with Marilyn Macfarlane and later, Steve and Julia Joyce at Castle Hills Farm. Susi enjoyed tremendous success with such memorable horses as CHCoaltown Prince and the iconic CHMoses.

Solomon has nurtured, cared for, and developed some of greatest Saddlebreds of all time—World’s Grand Champions CHSky Watch, CHMemories’ Citation, and CHWild-Eyed and Wicked—to name a few.  His years of experience and proven success are invaluable assets and we are lucky to have him as an assistant trainer here at Grey Ridge.
