The Roy-El story began over fifty years ago in beautiful northern New Mexico with founders Roy and Elberta Honstein. Through the years, Roy-El has had many regional, national and world champion horses.

Their daughter, Debbie Honstein Seybold, realized her love of Morgans at an early age, purchasing the Farm’s first Morgan horse, Stetsa, in 1966 from Howard and Gladdie Eberline.

Debbie Honstein Seybold studied at the Fulmer School of Equitation in England and apprenticed under National Reined Cow Horse Association Hall-of-Famer Ronnie Richards; renowned Saddlebred trainer, Martin Cockriel; and Bob and Judy Whitney, both American Morgan Horse Association Hall-of-Fame Honorees, before beginning her professional career. Over time she collected many accolades as a trainer as well as becoming a noted judge.

Debbie’s daughter, Erlene Seybold-Smythe, has followed the family tradition and is quickly becoming a highly regarded trainer and instructor. Erlene has been involved with raising and showing Roy-El Morgans since she was a child. Her training career began under the tutelage of her mother. She went on to apprentice under Terry Berg, a highly regarded reining trainer and world-famous Mike Goebig and Dwayne Knowles of Broadmoor.

The Farm continues to develop future champions as well as trail, pleasure and carriage horses. Roy-El’s goal is to give people the opportunity to know and love these wonderful animals.

Roy-El’s doors are always open.
