August Recap

September 1, 2021

Fall is on its way… and new horses are falling into our laps!

Here’s what we’ve accomplished at FMF this month:

  • We held our fourth FMF Open House on August 7th.
  • Long-time FMF resident Lacey got a spa day, and her rider Hailey got a big surprise… Lacey! Hailey’s mom purchased Lacey, and the pair couldn’t be cuter or happier! Congratulations Lacey and Hailey!
  • The Tabor family purchased their first horse! Congratulations Minty and Madeline!
  • Not long after Minty joined us, the Bucior family purchased their first horse, Tank! Congratulations Tank and Zoey!
  • On August 22nd, we held the 4th of our 5-show FFIJE Series.
  • The final of our 3 summer camp weeks went smoothly and was lots of fun!
  • Our very own homebred Amaro and our fabulous dressage instructor David Ziegler traveled to Wayne, IL to compete in the U.S. Dressage Festival of Champions, where they earned 79.5% in the 5yo Final! We are extremely proud of how this young horse is coming along, and we cannot wait to see him develop further.
  • On August 30th, 9 of our horse and rider combos traveled to Lexington, KY for the USEA American Eventing Championships!
Minty and Madeline could not be a better match!
Camp has never been more fun!
Lacey and her adorable family!
Zoey and Tank are quite a cute pair!
