Who We Are

Nicole Paez Junkins


Nicole has enjoyed riding, showing and caring for horses since the age 5. After graduating college, Nicole began working at her parents' tack shop where she met many people looking for a place to take their kids for lessons...there the idea of Full Circle was born. Full Circle Farm truly came full circle when she began teaching at a farm where her first pony was boarded. Full Circle Farm found its new home in 2003 in beautiful Bluemont, Virginia.
