HCF Riders and Horses Had a Great Week at Brave Horse IV!

We took a large group of horses and riders to Brave Horse Ohio IV and had lots of fun, learning experiences and success! Congratulations to all, and thank you to our trainers, grooms, friends and family who braved the weather and provided support and camaraderie for our barn!
