The Story of Bellewether

Judy Nason attributes her success in the Morgan world to the “horse of her dreams,” Orcland Bellendon. “He taught me to train, to teach, and to be a professional.”


Following a stellar career as a top equitation contender, Judy attended UNH’s Thompson School in Durham, NH, at age 17. Upon graduation in 1971, she began her career as a trainer / instructor / manager.


After gaining early experience at such noted Morgan Farms as Orcland, Townshend, Bayview and Troutbrook, Judy opened her own barn and began Judy Nason Stables in 1976, which later became Bellewether, in honor of her “true teacher,” Orcland Bellendon.


 “Belle was 34 when he was put down. He is the reason I am in the horse business. With him as my ‘partner’ in business, he taught me to be a trainer and instructor. I will be forever grateful to him for that.”
