As 2017 is coming to a close we send our appreciation to our wonderful clients for a successful breeding season and an exciting and rewarding show season.
Congratulations to Sierra Rose Farm on their purchase of Zips Bonanza Miss and her 2018 foal by Another Blue Cookie. We love that these two will be forever additions to your equine lesson and mentoring programs.
Congratulations to Dinah Rhodes and Golden Unique Link on a successful first year showing dressage. Link was truly amazing to watch. Link finished out the year with two year end high point awards: 3rd place Introductory Level and Reserve Champion Training Level. We hope the future brings more fun and success for Link!
Congratulations to Kathie Hanson of Due North Haflingers and Niagara YES for his incredible year showing dressage. Niagara started out the year doing a few Intro tests and ended the year with great scores in First Level. He did superb in Sport Horse In Hand as well. Niagara YES finished out the year as overall Champion in Training Level. Niagara will be appearing at the MHC Stallion Expo in March 2018, and will be showing at the USDF Dressage Pony Cup and Haflinger National Show. We are so humbled and honored to have you and Niagara as part of our family and look forward to many more years of joy and success.
Construction continues here as we have replaced some fencing, started putting stalls in the big barn and started construction on the 62 foot indoor round pen. Huge thank you to Nicholas Schoch, Chad Mulinski, and Henry Collins for all your help. David and I appreciate it.
Shout out to Kelsie Rumisek for finding the courage to take a leap of faith and go full time as a trainer. You threw caution to the wind and it has paid off ten fold. You have some truly amazing clients, a barn full of incredible horses and have sent home quite an impressive pile of ribbons with the horse owners.
Huge welcome to Kylie Helps as assistant trainer here and Zara Wright as farm assistant.
2018 will be the last year that reproduction services will be offered here. We are transitioning the farm to a training center and will be slowly getting our own numbers down. We will continue to provide reproduction services for stallions and/or mares here in a training program, but will not be taking strictly breeding animals in for breeding services after 6/1/18. It is time for David and I to slow down (our health has been demanding we do so).
Ask us about training and showing as well as the lesson programs available.
