About The Founders

The horse show founders, Mary Beebee and Ellen Shevella, have been life long equestrians. Having met in the 1970s and a chance encounter in 2008, the idea of a boutique horse show evolved into the MAEF horse show of today.

Mary Beebee

 Mary Beebee, born and raised in Rochester, NY began her equestrian endeavors with Welsh ponies, 4- H, and Pony Club. Growing up as a teenager she was always at the barn and involved with horses on a daily basis attending competitions and showing ponies. Graduating from Lake Erie College with an equestrian studies degree she studied and rode in Ireland with Iris Kellettt and Eddie Macken. Upon graduation, she worked in the corporate world and competed as an amateur. Returning to graduate school and earning a MBA in small business management she continued showing, managing nationally rated competitions, and raising a family. Always with attention to detail she continues her passion by co-sponsoring the MAEF.
