Marty Ray Gordon, father of Justin and Jody Gordon, started Gordonview farm in 1991. Marty's experience with farm
life is a result of spending most of his childhood following and learning from his legendary walking horse trainer grandfather, Ray Tenpenny.
As it was read during Ray's induction to the Tennessee Walking Horse Hall of Fame, desire, determination and dedication are the three
attributes that inspired Marty to build a simple life on the farm raising horses, cattle, and hay while working a full time job at Arnold Air Force
Base. The horsemanship and colt breaking that Ray passed down to Marty is a skill he still uses today. 2000 marked the year the Gordon
boys set out on a mission to enhance the farm to accommodate family and friends visiting and attending the Tennessee Walking Horse Celebration
as a place to relax and feel at home. May 8 of 2008, Marty married Lorri Isenhath. The family of four now embraces the future and look forward to sharing
Tennessee farm life at Gordonview with you.
Lorri Isenhath Gordon moved to Tennessee in January of 2008. Lorri is an AKC Licensed judge, as well as a breeder of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels
