All About BeechGrove Stable and Kennels
Hello and welcome to the Beechgrove Stable and
I am Elese Alsup, the owner and operator of the Beech
Grove Stable and Kennels.
I have always had a love of animals and working
outdoors. Growing up on a dairy, beef and crop farm in
Manchester, TN was the perfect place for me. At eight I
received my first horse and begin learning to ride.
While teaching high school I took up the hobby of
foxhunting in the early 90’s with a small foxhunting
club in middle Tennessee. During that time I became
first flight fieldmaster and later jt. Master of this
After retiring from teaching in 2000, I started, along
with a few friends and local
riders, the Beech Grove Hunt . I was the amateur
huntsman for the club which involved breeding, training,
exercising and developing a pack of hounds and, of
course, hunting them each week during the season. In the
thirteen years the Beech Grove Hunt existed, I developed
a good, honest and dependable pack. Not only did the BGH
pack show good sport year after year in the hunt field
but in the off season they were entered in field trials
and bench shows in which several ribbons for performance
and confirmation where won over the years.
After closing BGH, I continue to enjoy the sport of fox
hunting with Cedar Knob Hounds and the Hillsboro Hounds
in middle Tennessee.
Left with a kennel and several extra stalls and too much
pasture for just my horses, I decided to open a boarding
stable and kennel. The 250 acre farm consists of miles
of trails, beautiful scenic country to ride with many
jumps left over from the BGH days of hosting a cross
country event each year.
This is a small operation where attention to detail and
customer satisfaction is a priority. Here your horse,
dog or cat will receive the best care possible with
their safety and comfort in mind.
