A Family Affair: The Barkaszi's of Waterhorse Farm
How, where & when did the family
business begin?
Mary Jo Barkaszi: I have been riding
since the age of 9 or 10, grew up in
Ohio, and have continued riding fairly
consistently with short hiatuses during
college and graduate school. My
husband, Stephen, was never a
“horsey” person but caught the bug
pretty quickly when he realized that it
was a case of “love me love my horse”.
He has caught on quickly once we
considered breeding. He enjoys
researching bloodlines and performance
– taking a very “engineering” approach
whereas I like what I like and have the
time in the saddle to know what works
so it made a good match. We have two
children, Kaleigh 14 and Arek, 13.
When I was pregnant with Kaleigh, we
bred my Ommen jumper mare which
started us in the breeding direction. The
actual business venture began with the
purchase of another Dutch broodmare
that started our breeding program in
1995 or 1996.

What's a typical day in your life


presently?
Right now we have our farm in Cocoa
where we keep a couple of the show
horses and most of the broodmares and
babies (and a few retirees). We also
have a farm in Ocala about 4 miles from
the HITS showgrounds where most of
the young horses and show horses are Kaleigh & Mary Jo discussing the course
