Please join us in welcoming Dana Bechtel to the R.O Lervick team! She comes to us with passion and years of experience with riding horses.
Dana has been riding horses since she was five years old and fell in love with the Arabian breed not long after. Recently graduating college from the University of Colorado Denver, with a Business Marketing Degree, she decided to follow her passion and love for horses. Her devotion to horses, coupled with her business skills, will allow her to flourish and aid in her success within the industry.
Dana joins us with years of experience in both Hunter Pleasure and Western Pleasure. Her accomplishments in the ring include a Canadian National Championship in the Western Division, a U.S. National Championship in the Hunter Division and numerous additional national, regional and local titles.
Wearing the roses isn’t something that just comes easy and Dana knows how much hard work and dedication it takes to get to the top. Dana has had the opportunity to work around and learn from some of the best in the business, including Greg Harris and Wendy Potts. Dana recently has had the opportunity to work for the very gifted Sally Randle where she honed in on her skills, and was able to form her own program for preparing horse and rider to work as a team. She is very excited to help others to their first or many future successes in the ring.

The Arabian Horse Farm
R.O. Lervick Arabians is located in the Stillaguamish Valley about an hour's drive north of Seattle. The Arabian horse farm sits on 30 acres and features a main 50-stall barn with a 70' x 160' covered arena, three heated wash racks, four "ready" rooms, two heated drying rooms, and two tack rooms. Upstairs in the main barn are three offices, an apartment, restrooms, and a comfortably furnished viewing room that overlooks the indoor arena.
Surrounding the main barn are several pastures and paddocks lined with white board fence. A 12-stall mare and foal barn includes sophisticated breeding facilities and laboratory. Also on the premises is a 90' x 200' outdoor arena, covered bull pen and hot walker, a 10-stall overflow barn, a 60' x 80' hay storage barn, and two mobile homes for 24-hour staff.
Farm owners Roger and Linda Lervick are natives of Stanwood, Washington. Roger Lervick is Chairman and CEO of Stanwood's family owned business, Twin City Foods, Inc., the largest independent frozen vegetable processor in the world. The Lervicks first fell in love with Arabian horses when Grandpa Arne Lervick purchased a gelding for their daughter, Tammy, in 1973. Nearly 40 years later, R.O. Lervick Arabians is 100+ horses strong and a well respected name in the Arabian horse industry.
