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! Maggie Gampfer, Nicole Missry, Anthony Desimone, Terence Prunty, Sammy Perlman, Ally Bradley, Katie Williams, Sarah Doyle, Alan Korotkin, Berry Porter, Liza Towell, Frank and Jen Madden, Bonnie and Frank Cunniffe, Lindsay Yinger, Cormac Kennedy, Arturo Vidal, Wuitcho Mandujano, Nikki Arnold, Rachel Mikoff, Andrew Pennell, Misael Gonzalez.
