(Weber) Bradley. 

Lisa graduated from Rosemary Hall, Wallingford, CT, she then attended Bennett College, Millbrook, NY, where she studied design.  After graduation she continued her studies at Parsons School of Design, New York City, NY.

It was at this time that she married and moved to Old Chatham, NY.  During her years there, she was an active member of the Old Chatham Hunt Club, becoming a whipper-in, she also founded and organized the Old Chatham Horse Trials. She became the District Commissioner (DC) of the Old Chatham Pony Club and later a member of the United States Pony Club Board of Governors. All while running Antinore Farm, which maintained a barn full of ponies and horses as well as the OCHC kennels. The farm bred and raised many horses and became a hub of pony club activity as Lisa spent hours giving lessons to everyone. Many of her students went on to solid equestrian accomplishments, including breed grand championships and even the winner of the Challenge of the Breeds (Mancunian Dauphin). She did all of this while continuing her own equestrian goals, studying, and riding with some of the best equestrians of the day, including Olympic riders and coaches, herself being longlisted for the Olympic eventing team.
