Equestrian Featured in National Magazine

Liia Becker of Tide's End Farm in Georgetown, Maine has been featured in the latest issue of American Profile Magazine. American Profile is a nationally published magazine with a circulation of over 5 million and is a weekly, full-color magazine that celebrates hometown American life.

Becker grew up in Georgetown and has been involved with horses since the age of 7. She left for Canada 10 years later to pursue her passions in dressage and eventing, in the latter sport she was long-listed for the Canadian Olympic Team. Returning to Maine in 1985, Becker established Tide's End Farm in Waldoboro, where she taught riding to hundreds of Mainers, both children and adults - many of her students having gone on to compete at the national level.

During this time she also became heavily involved in the rare Cleveland Bay breed and she imported a stallion, Runswick Sultan, from Wales. The breed is extremely rare with less than a 500 horses listed worldwide. The owners of these beautiful bay horses are currently engaged in a struggle to ensure that this pure breed which can be traced back into the 19th century survives well into the 21st.

In 2000, Becker moved her farm to Georgetown where she has established a new Tides End Farm in the area where she herself first fell in love with horses. She continues to teach local riding lessons at all levels from beginner to advanced and has expanded to offer residential riding vacations
