Congratulations to these new owners!
We’ve just welcomed lots of new teams to GRS…
And said goodbye to some favorite horses that left for their great new homes!
Busy Being Fabulous (Get Busy x GLB Bell Of The Ball BHOF), a fancy black 3YO mare, left Oklahoma City to head back to Kansas City with Phil Fountain at Fire Stables to pair up with a game new amateur!
The Harmon Family really stepped up their game so that everyone in the family could have some fun! Cingate Hot Shot GCH (Graycliff Tony GCH x Cingate Starry Night), a many time champion in the pleasure driving division, was sold by Lexi Ellsworth for Ed Harmon to enjoy, which thrills us because he gets to stay right here with us! Ed & Cathy also purchased the beautiful EKL Super Elegant (BKC Valiant Star x Super Moon), a talented coming 4YO mare from Kim Swartz, who was represented by Andrew Beiler at Sunrise Stables LLC in Gordonville, PA. Along with LBJ Starfire (BKC Valiant Star x One True Love), a 5YO gelding who was a World Champion in hand as a yearling before becoming a top Hunter Pleasure competitor with former owner Mary Golota, these two quality individuals will be the 2022 mounts of Ed and Cathy’s daughter Hannah, who came up through our lesson program.
We lucked out again when one of our favorites, Open Invitation (Merriehill Home Stretch GCH x Invitation Only GCH), a 3YO mare bred and formerly owned by Kathy Papola & Libby Utecht, made the full transition to the ownership of Ron & Libby Utecht, so she’s staying with us!
Christian Lie and Imelda Sastrawinata also earned “Best Parents Ever” awards when they purchased BRMF Leilani’s Fireball GCH (Harlan’s Star material GCH x Lailani) and BRMF Debonaire Flaire (HVK Bell Flaire x RWF Finest Hour) for daughter, Nathania to show. Nathania took her first lesson last year while they were in OKC and of course she’s been bitten by the horse bug! She couldn’t have a better start, with Fireball fresh off his historic win on the green shavings in Louisville in equitation with former owner Dawson Archibald!
