On January 5 2018, Echo Farm unexpectedly lost a valued coach and treasured friend, Barbara Lindsay.
Barbara was a part of the Echo Farm family as an instructor and dear friend for almost 20 years. She began teaching under the tutelage of George Morris in the 1960’s and quickly realized that it was her biggest passion. Professional statue and achievements aside, Barbara was a very special and loving person who was a joy to work with. As Callie and many of her students could attest, Barb was not just a trainer at Echo Farm, but also a mentor and friend to all her students. Barb will be forever missed but never forgotten. Good-Bye for now to our mentor and friend.
