At the young age of 15 Troy White’s love affair with the Arabian horse began. Living in Delaware Troy was a stall cleaner for First State Arabians. They were primarily a Performance barn, the occasional halter horse would be schooled by Steve Dady. Troy found himself drawn to the schooling process and knew he needed to learn more. Troy found his career path and made the wise decision to go work for Steve, learning many valuable skills that he has used throughout his career. Along with these 2 farms Troy also worked for Cathy Vincent of Adandy Farms, Eileen Verdick of Imperial Egyptian Stud & Midwest Training Centre. At Midwest is where the Dream Team begun between Michele, Chauncey & Troy. To read more about the Dream Team CLICK HERE.
After a few wonderful years at Midwest, Troy went onto to start a training facility for himself in Chicago. He had much great success and very much enjoyed having his own training center, but opportunity soon came knocking and Troy joining the team and Jade Creek, bringing home many wonderful awards for Manny Lawrence!
As of 2016 Troy has become a fulltime member at Shellbird Inc and an extremely important asset to the team.
When asked what Troy’s favorite memory though out his year with the Arabian horse he quickly replied with “While at Midwest I had the opportunity to show a yearling Half-Arabian gelding at the 1998 Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show. It was this young geldings first time in the arena and we walked out as the Unanimous Champions!” Many know this gelding as he went on to win many more championships – ShutUp N Dance +//.
