Los Angeles natives Tom Foran and Daphne Thompson are the power couple behind Foran Performance Horses in Burbank, California. The duo combines their reining and hunter-jumper backgrounds to train riders and horses of all levels, from beginners to World Champions.
Tom and Daphne’s show horses are healthy, top-performing competitors—thanks to SUCCEED.
Tom and Daphne’s Achievements
Growing up in a populous city didn’t prevent Tom Foran from pursuing his passion for horses. His Hollywood actor father and fellow horseman, Dick Foran, kept a horse for Tom at a nearby ranch. Tom’s childhood exposure to reining followed him into adulthood and past college graduation. In 1999, Tom opened his own business, where he now trains horses, competes, judges and offers multi-level reining clinics.
Like Tom, Daphne Thompson has pursued horses throughout her life. She started competing hunter-jumpers as a child and still competes to this day. Daphne met Tom when she began exploring other riding disciplines in her early twenties. Daphne also fell in love with reining, picked up the sport and is currently ranked one of the top 20 professionals in the National Reining Horse Association.
Together, they run Foran Performance Horses with a well-balanced, cross-discipline approach. Clients are trained from the 88-acre Los Angeles Equestrian Center, while the engaged couple maintains a six-stud, full breeding stable at their home.
Foran Performance Horses are Strong and Healthy on SUCCEED®
For Tom and Daphne, SUCCEED is the cornerstone of their nutrition program. Every show horse, along with several broodmares and young ones, receive SUCCEED daily.
“We ask a lot of our horses,” adds Daphne. “Feeding SUCCEED is our way of giving back to them.”
