Another warm welcome to Kirsten Bittner and her sister, Graice, along with their horse, Spartan.We are excited to see how they all do in the show ring this coming summer riding in the English Classes. Gracie and Spartan rode their way to two reserve State Championships our first time out.
Welcome Jordan, Michelle and the Wetzel family with their horse, Buddy. We cannot wait to see how much fun you have with the other kids here at Brownstone and watch you develop into an accomplished young rider.
We'd also like to welcome Robert Gabriel, his wife, Susan, and his horses, Bhodi and Otto. They are looking to further their education in Ranch Horse, and OH YES, get to working on some cattle!
Welcome Sylvia Cueto and her horses Bella and Lemonade! Sylvia enjoys trail riding on her "marshmallow" Bella, but also loves to take our miss Lemonade as well.
A warm welcome to Megan Herr and her horse, Mac, and Devon Coover with her horse, Pep! These two friends came in together and enjoy trail riding, light showing, and a little crossrail every once in a while.
We also want to acknowledge that Madison Calhoun is joining us with Gypsy, one of Natalie's new "kids". We are excited to see where this year takes you.
Kailey Degezelle, a long term resident here at Brownstone, will be riding another of Natalie's new babies, Tango into the front of the hunter line. Gracie may even be making a surprise debut with Tango this summer. And Piper Kelly will be standing in the lead with Dolly.
Steven Flegel, Robin's grandson, will be making his debut on Herbie. Ranch Horse, here we come, and 4-H will never be the same.
**Also be on the lookout for Abilgail, Carolyn, Taylor, Cheyenne, Chloe, and Lexie, mixing it up with Doc and Jessie at some open show (and maybe even a 4-H event or two).And who knows - Kara may make an appearance!
.This summer will also be bringing about some winds of change to Brownstone. Olivia Benn will be joining us again. Emma Padulese and Piper will be in and out wielding the feed scoop. And the biggest news is that Megan Delp will be on "foal watch" as baby Delp is due to make an appearance in July. Keep a look out to find out if she's having a filly or a colt!
