His buildings are practical, beautiful and, most of all, buildable. His extensive building background is also extremely valuable for renovations, restorations and problem solving.

Georgia Hickey Retires

Georgia Hickey has retired after 18 years as an equine facilities designer and sales representative with King.  She will complete the projects she has begun, and will be working with King as a consultant on an ad hoc basis.

During her 18 years, Georgia teamed with King to design and complete more than 140 barns, indoor arenas and outbuildings of all sizes, including 20 major equestrian facilities.

A lifelong horse owner and successful breeder and exhibitor, Georgia’s horses have won many championships and high-point awards at state, regional and national levels.  She was the founder and former director of the Equine Studies program at Cazenovia College and a former national director for a major breed organization.

Georgia is looking forward to spending more time with her horses and Welsh ponies, and has two young hunter pony prospects that will be coming to the ring soon.
