How is it the end of October already? We celebrated many birthdays this month! Nicole Parrill our head trainer and barn owner shared a birthday with Mackenzie Taylor on the 10th. Ella Ballard’s 19th birthday was on the 17th and we celebrated by watching the Grand Prix at WEC. Our show team traveled down to WEC for the fall III series. Kim Tarnapoll Legloas ridden by Jessica Borton where back in the Performance Hunters without skipping a beat after Jessica’s maternity leave. We love watching this pair in the ring. Stef Copeland and her gelding Heaven Hill received two blue ribbons in the .85 jumpers and moved up to the .95. Ella Ballard and NE-YO laid down some beautiful rounds in the Adult Hunters on her Birthday! Madeline Kottman and her pony Valor had fast rounds in the Novice Children’s Jumpers. We’re looking forward to making it back down to WEC mid-November.

A big congratulations to Alexandra Mehas on the lease of Smitten 57. We can’t wait for this pair to join the show team this winter!

The annual Spooktacular Halloween party was a blast. The horse/handler costume parade was the best yet! Check out our Instagram page for all the fun photos and videos.
