Hello! We would like to introduce ourselves and share a little about our history.
I am Leslie Gicewicz and my husband is Dick Polk. We are the owners of The
Retreat at Oakcrest Farms. We moved to Texas from Phoenix, Arizona, in September
2001 when Dick retired after thirty-five years with the FAA while I continued working
in Houston for the FAA.
Relatives living on the property next door to us were breeding and racing Arabian
horses. Within three months, we had a business plan and partnered with our family on
some of the young horses next door. By 2003, we were brave enough to branch out and
buy a brood mare and lease another. When I retired from the FAA, we were, quite
literally, off to the races. The learning curve was huge.
