About Time to Shine Stables
Hey, my name is Tracie Adams, owner of Time to Shine Stables. I grew up in rural Arkansas on a farm and have been riding since I was 6 years old. My passion for horses runs deep and it has led me across the country competing at the highest levels in the United States. Training horses and people is my passion. I have been teaching for over 20 years and I thoroughly enjoy coaching all levels of equestrians. I started Time to Shine Stables in 2014 with a mission to share my love for horses and all animals with our community. Enjoying the connection people of all ages experience with all the animals at Time to Shine truly is what its all about. Nothing makes me happier.

About a year ago I moved to Charlotte and starting working for Time to Shine Stables. I am experienced in training all around horses, colt starting and teaching lessons.

Kayla has had a passion for horses her whole life. She started riding lessons at 10 years old and has never looked back. Her first lessons were in the English discipline and learning how to jump. For her 13th birthday she got her first horse, learned the Western discipline, and then started competing in local barrel races. In 2017 Kayla started working and volunteering for Tracie, owner of Time to Shine Stables, as a barn assistant, event hostess, and summer camp counselor. There is no place she would rather be than at her "second home" Time to Shine Stables. You can catch her on any given day at the farm with a huge smile on her face and a helping hand.
