July 2008

We are proud to announce the Sale of EMC Brocken to Carol Kelly: CONGRATULATIONS

Brocken met Carol Kelly of Chapel Hill, NC during our trip to the CDI in Raleigh. Carol fell in Love with Brocken and tried her out immediately.
On July 1st, 2008 Carol became the new Owner of Brocken.
We wish her & Brocken lots of fun and great success. Brocken's new home will be at OVATION FARM in North Carolina, see attached pictures of proud owner Carol & Brocken.

Gibraltar will also have a new rider, Caroline Humphries. Caroline has been training with Debbie for many years and they traveled to Memphis,TN together to give Gibby his first rides with Caroline. They accomplished their task and received qualifying scores. The pair will try their first Freestyle at the Ole South competition in August.

Winterwillow and Fabelhaft had extensive Training by Joe Schomburg from Wellborn Quarterhorses. He teaches the "Buddy" system a la Parelli and others. They really have matured a lot and should be ready for "under saddle".
