I’m Stacy Pearsall, owner and manager of LowCountry Acres. I’ve had horses most of my life. As a girl on my mom’s Arabian horse farm, I would help start young horses and assist during the breeding season. Upon graduating high school, I joined the service. During my 10-year career as a combat photojournalist, I documented stories in over 41 countries and always managed to stay connected to the horse world by assisting and volunteering my time at stables around the world. While stationed in Europe at the turn of the century (’00-’02), I encountered the European Brabant (Belgisch Trekpaard) at the barn which I worked part time. It was then I vowed to have one of these amazing creatures. After being wounded in Iraq and medically retired from service years later, I acquired my first Brabant, Leah. Today, I breed European Brabants and train draft horses of all varieties at my farm, LowCountry Acres, in Charleston, SC. Though combat disabled, I do not let my disabilities hold me back. With my service animal, Charlie by my side, I continue to work as a photographer, author, educator, speaker, television host, farm manager and horse trainer.
