News and Updates

December 25, 2015: We'd like to congratulate Harry Delaney of Oakwood, OH on the purchase of JAX Java Jolt! Harry has been on a long search to find the perfect Morgan to be his riding and driving companion and JJ fit the bill! JJ will remain in training to finish his training, but this young gelding is one of the most sensible coming three year olds we have worked with in a long time and we are sure that he and Harry will get along wonderfully!

November 28, 2015: Two of our long time favorites are headed west! Mary Shappee of Majic Stables in Norman, OK acted as agent for the buyer, Amanda Sullivan, on the purchase of Levee's Edge Beignet. Beignet is a a quiet and friendly young mare and we know that she and Amanda will get along great. Storyville also caught the eye of Mary. This many time Grand National champion is super fun to ride and will be an asset to the lesson program at Majic Stables. Congratulations to all!

October 20,2015: We have made it home from Oklahoma and we are so happy with the performances of both of the horses we brought. We'd like to begin by congratulating Whitney Singer on the purchase of SMK Empire Strikes Black! This big and handsome gelding was formerly owned by Pere and Marsha Seward and Kathryn acted as Agent for both parties. We are so excited to see Asher going to a great home and we hope Whitney loves Asher as much as she loved his mother, JAX Noble Onyx, who Whitney won multiple grand national and world titles with. SMK Empire Strikes Black had a great go in the Ladies Hunter Pleasure geldings class and this 4 year old handled himself fantastic in a class with tough show ring veterans. He also showed in the 4 Year old Western pleasure stallions and geldings to a 6th place finish. Soon after, we said goodbye to Asher so he could begin his new adventure in Arizona!
JAX Iron Man is owned and bred by Kathryn Schwartz and was shown by Trisha Hess. This striking grey gelding moves beautifully and turned a lot of heads! He started off in the 3 year old western pleasure stallions and geldings with a top 10 finish in a big class. He was very consistent and will be even better next year! Later in the same day, JAX Iron Man showed in the 3 year old hunter pleasure stallions and geldings and was named the Reserve Grand National champion. We are so proud of how far this nice gelding has come along. We then finished up the show with Stark going back in the 3 year old hunter pleasure World Championship where he placed 6th. This fantastic gelding is still available for purchase!

September 20, 2015: We just got home from the New York Regional with two and couldn't have been more proud of the two we took! SMK Empire Strikes Black showed in the 4 year old Hunter pleasure, Ladies Hunter Pleasure, and finished up in the NYSSA Hunter/Western Sweepstakes class. This nice gelding had three flawless classes and is looking so much like his mother, World Champion JAX Noble Onyx. Asher is owned by Pere and Marsha Seward and is available for purchase. JAX Iron Man also made the trip to New York and even in the last month has improved by leaps and bounds since the Buckeye Morgan Challenge. He was shown in the three year old Hunter PLeasure, three year old Western pleasure, as well as Hunter Pleasure Maiden horse. This fantastic three year old is also available and BOTH can be seen at the Grand National!

August 11,2015: The Buckeye Morgan Challenge has come and gone and we had a great time! JAX Iron Man made his show ring debut and this dynamic grey gelding made quite a splash! He showed in the three year old Hunter Pleasure as well as 3 year old Western Pleasure. This nice gelding was shown by Trisha Hess and is owned by Kathryn. Inquiries are invited. SMK Empire Strikes Black had a great show! He won the 4 year old hunter pleasure with Trisha as well as the Amateur pleasure Driving with owner Pere Seward and was reserve in both Championships as well. Lastly, Napoleon Dynamite recently came back to the barn and he and Trisha had a fun time in a large Road Hack class for a second place. Inquiries are invited on all three of these nice geldings.

July 30, 2015: We are so excited to announce the sale of Magenta's Mad Moonshine! This beautiful black stallion was purchased by Brooke Shingledecker of Michigan and we couldn't be more excited to have this wonderful three year old going to such a great home and we can't wait to see him and Brooke make their show ring debut. Kathryn acted as agent for former owner/breeder Magenta Farms.

June 15, 2015: WE are home from the Gold Cup Regional and all around had a really nice show. Magenta's Mad Moonshine made his show ring debut with Trisha in the 3 year old western pleasure. This beautiful black colt went in the ring like he's been doing it for years and is proudly owned by Magenta Farms. SMK Empire Strikes Black is a big 4 year old gelding who also made his show ring debut at Gold Cup and we were so proud of him. He showed in the 4 year old western pleasure with Kathryn for a flawless debut, then switched it up to show in the junior classic pleasure driving with owner, Pere Seward. Asher then had another division change and showed in the Novice Hunter pleasure with Trisha. Lastly, Levee's Edge Beignet showed in the Novice and Limit western pleasure classes. This pretty mare is very consistent in the show ring and is doing so well.

April 15, 2015: Futurity's Millennium Miss has found a new home! This beautiful black mare produced Magenta's Mad Moonshine for her previous owner and is headed to Michigan to produce some quality Moriesian foals.

March 3, 2015: We have had a busy new year with a few new training horses as well as a few sales so far. We'd like to start by congratulating Mickey Newman of Kettering, OH on the purchase of the grade Morgan, Blaze. This small but mighty gelding was just what Mickey was looking for her in search for a small Morgan for endurace riding and pleasure driving. We'd also like to to announce the sale of Windblu Roadmaster. More information coming soon on his sale, but we are so excited this former World champion equitation horse has found his forever home! We have a few more sales to announce! So stay tuned!
