The past two weeks have been very busy, filled with road trip to visit several of the SSLLC horses in training around the country.
The first stop was to drop off a new “rookie” three year old to Crystal Farms in Marshall, Michigan. While there Amanda was able to see the talent of Mary Carlton showcased in several of the super-cool youngsters Mary is bringing along. She has some really impressive stock in her barn for this coming show season! As always, she does a fabulous job as with SSLLC Bourne Supremacy, the gorgeous now five year old she rode to win the highly competitive UPHA Hunter Pleasure Classic at the 2009 Jubilee Regional. Hopefully the “rookie’s” future is just as bright!
During the following week, Amanda made the trek eight hours north to the lovely, (but VERY COLD) state of Vermont to visit Luman Wadhams Stable. There, Amanda witnessed another display of horsemanship at it’s finest. Luman never fails to impress and his barn is FULL of many talented three year olds! The SSLLC group looked simply AMAZING! Get ready World, here comes Schengrund Stables!
While in Vermont, Amanda also stopped by Fairview Stables to watch Jaisen and Meghan vonBallmoos work some horses. They have lots of youngsters in the barn as well as one of Amanda’s favorite horses, Roberto Cavalli (who Schengrund Stables will be breeding to this year). Roberto looked incredible under saddle and is the definition of Morgan type! With quite an impressive bunch, Fairview Stables will be a serious contender in this year’s showring!
Thank you to all of these trainers for doing an awesome job with our youngsters and for allowing Amanda to ride some of the wonderful horses in your barns! See you all next month!
