Crystal Farms Equestrian Center – Marshall, MI

2013 MMHBF

Crystal Farms was triumphant yet again throughout the Michigan Futurity weekend. With a strong set of talented teams, Crystal Farms made many trips to the winner’s circle. With Oklahoma just days away, Team Crystal achieved even greater confidence in all their abilities.

Chloe Fleck and Ultra’s Special Diva made a phenomenal debut together! This beautiful team swept the Junior Exhibitor English Pleasure division. I’m not sure this team could be more well matched. They won their qualifier as well as the Championship!

Kim Thomas enjoyed another show filled with victory passes! In fact, Kim and Paradigm John Thomas were undefeated! The pair won the Amateur Western Pleasure qualifier and Championship! Stepping it up a notch, the pair won the Western Pleasure Senior horse qualifier followed up with the Open Western Pleasure Championship! What an awesome accomplishment!

MJ Sklenicka also enjoyed a great horse show with her trusty partner, Graycliff Four Nines Fine. MJ won the Western Pleasure Ladies qualifier! This pair are as elegant as they are cute. There is something particularly special about an amateur who so clearly loves her partner!

Hayley Broich had a fantastic show with both of her handsome geldings. This talented young rider excels in both the western and hunter divisions. With Cedarfarm Lancelot she won the Western Pleasure Junior Exhibitor qualifier, the AMHA Western Medal, the MJMHA Western Medal, the Western Equitation Championship, and was Reserve Champion in the Western Pleasure Junior Exhibitor Championship! Not too shabby for this talented pair! In her tall boots, Hayley was also extremely successful. GSK The Villian and Hayley won the Hunter Pleasure Junior Exhibitor qualifier, the AMHA Hunt Seat Medal, and were Reserve Champions in the Hunter Pleasure Junior Exhibitor Championship as well as the Hunt Seat Equitation Championship! Can’t wait to see more of this talented young lady!

Speaking of talented young hunt riders, Kaecee Dollard enjoyed success in this division as well. Kaecee and her adorable partner, Sunny Acres Sneak A Peek, won the MJMHA Hunt Seat Medal, the 14-17 Hunt Seat Equitation qualifier, followed by the Hunt Seat Equitation Championship! Kaecee has excellent form paired with impressive ring position! Crystal Farms is very proud of this talented rider!

Mary showed a super talented junior horse for Travis and Erin Higgins in the hunter pleasure division at Futurity. Key Diva is big, bold and super ladylike! Mary and Key Diva won the MMHBF 3 & 4 Year Old Hunter Pleasure class followed up with the Championship win in the Junior Hunter Pleasure Championship!

Jess Brown showed her super fun saddle seat partner, Salvador, at Futurity. Jess was undefeated, winning the MJMHA Saddle Seat Medal, the 17 & Under Saddle Seat Equitation qualifier, and the Saddle Seat Equitation Championship!

Alena Graves also enjoyed a fun show with her partner, MLF Merlin. Alena has such a passion for equitation and it comes out in every ride she has! The pair were Reserve Champions in the Saddle Seat Equitation Championship!

Oklahoma City is the next stop for Crystal Farms – and we’re ready!!!
