About Us


Michelle Palladino – 

Michelle became interested in riding from a young age.  Growing up in Northeastern Ohio, as a junior Michelle had already won numerous championships in the hunter and event disciplines.  She began working with her dressage instructor, Charlotte Bayley, and later became a working student for David O’Connor.

After graduating high school, Michelle became David O’Connor’s barn manager and had the opportunity to travel to England to groom for him at the prestigious Badminton 3-Day Event.

As a young rider, Michelle represented Area VIII at two NAYRC’s at the CCI** level.  Throughout her equestrian career she has had the chance to work with many great instructors including Jules Nyssen, Karen O’Connor, Michael Plum, Torrence Watkins, and Jimmy Wofford.  She has competed through the Advanced Horse Trial level, has brought along many young horses and has had the pleasure of teaching students of all ages and abilities.

Long after completing her psychology degree from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and obtaining her North Carolina Real Estate Broker’s License, her love of horses still remains.  Currently, Michelle focuses on her family, the care of her own horses and her real estate career.

Fox Chase Farm does not currently offer instruction for students or training for horses.  We are happy to give referrals to qualified trainers in the area.  

Michelle would love to help you find your next equestrian property, golf front home, waterfront lake house or funky cottage in town.  Your NC Realty Expert can help with all of your Real Estate needs!
