North Run

Thank you!

Thank you to all of the unsung heroes of the horse world. To the many people who get up at 3am at a horse show, who care for all of our horses day in and day out. Thank you to the many people who work on Christmas, New Years, Easter and more when others are celebrating the holidays.

Thank you to those who turn out all of our horses with the care and detail of the most dedicated artist. Who sometimes and too often aren’t mentioned when the wins and successes are being touted. Who sometimes are forgotten when the thought of a tip isn’t recognized or the gesture of bringing a coffee, a donut, a sandwich or a snack on a day that may have gone on for endless hours is overlooked.

Thank you to the army of people behind the scenes who are the true backbone of our sport. Thank you for everything you do for all of us and our wonderful horses every single day!

And finally, a very special thank you to our indelible North Run team for all you do.
You guys are the absolute best.
We couldn’t do it without you!🎖

National Horse Show

Sometimes special moments occur in life.
Ava Stearns well earned win in the 2019 ASPCA Maclay National Championship on Acer K was one of those times. Ava’s talent, coupled with a lot of hard work, dedication, perseverance and loyalty has served her well over the span of her noteworthy junior career. Ava’s championship win in the Maclay came off the heels of winning the Res Championship at both the USEF east coast talent search finals and the WIHS finals. Ava and Max were also 7th in the USEF medal finals.
Huge congrats Ava!!
You deserve every moment of your successes!

Tanner Korotkin closed out his junior career with a 2nd in the 25,000 Hi Jr AO Classic on Armageddon and 9th in the Maclay finals with Zapfier.

Cat Tyree had top placings with both Catungee and Enjoy Louis to win the Leading International Jumper Rider Bonus.

Congrats to our entire group on a great week in Ky. Addie Gierkink, Hallie Grimes, Ava Ellis, Maggie Hill, Yaz, Farah and Zayna Rizvi, Eva Fisherman, Alex Alston, Taylor Griffiths Madden and Ned Cunniffe.

And of course huge thanks to our hard working team of National Horse Show trainers, barn managers and grooms. We’re so lucky to have each and every one of you!

USET Talent Search Finals East

Congrats to all our riders this past weekend at Gladstone. The iconic USET headquarters always adds to the specialness of this fantastic competition.

Ava Stearns made all of us proud with her beautiful performances on our 8 year old gelding, Acer K, finishing as the Reserve Champion.
It’s especially meaningful when your longtime, hard working and dedicated student has success as a result of a lot of time and patience with a green horse. It’s been so fun to work with Ava and her devoted mom, Sarah Doyle for all these years. It’s so incredibly rewarding when a student reaches that measured place of maturity...where the ups, the downs and the in betweens (we all experience in this sport) can be viewed in a calm and philosophical manner.
The ability to take things in stride is one of the earmark traits of those who will continue on and excel in not only our sport... but in life. Congrats and well done Ava! You’re a champion in our book all day long!
*Congratulations also to Ellie Ferrigno and her entire team on a well deserved win!

AdditionallyTaylor Griffiths Madden and her wonderful partner, Mac One III finished in 8th with scores of 84/95/87 over the three phases. Congrats to Frank and Jenn Madden and Capital Hill. It’s always fun to work with a great team! Well done Taylor!

Tanner Korotkin and Yaz Rizvi’s Canny Windsor Z finished 14th overall with scores of 90.5 in the flat phase and a score of 92 on Sunday. Tanner was also presented with the USET Silver Medal for winning 10 USEF talent search classes. Thank you to Yaz Rizvi and Peacock Ridge for the use of Canny!

Hallie Grimes with Boldly Stated, Farah Rizvi and Jarinka and Ava Ellis on Remmits Delphi all had solid performances as well. Great job to everyone!

Many thanks to our Gladstone team of Maggie Gampfer, Sarah Doyle, Katie Williams, and Wuitcho Mandujano for all your care and attention for our wonderful horses. We couldn’t do it without you!

Many thanks as well to Alan Korotkin and Berry Porter for all your help, and a special shout out to Nina Ulenberg for sending Acer K our way!

This journey has been so life changing. You took a girl that loved horses with a very big dream and made it all possible. You opened the door to a world of possibilities and opportunity. Her confidence comes from the strong foundation you have given her. Your horsemanship and work ethic have shaped her into the person she is. I am forever grateful.

Congratulations 🎉🎊

So much talent!!

I love Ava and Acer K
