Brookside Premier

Always fun to show at Brookside.  The weather made things a little complicated but in the end our horses and riders were very good. 

Courtney and Branigan did the 1.30m Prix and bar one mistake had a super round. Linda and Tika (shown in the picture) were 3rd in the AA Stake.  Ian and Spyder won every JrAm Modified class including the Stake.  Sarah and Lucia finished 3rd in the 1.20 Stake. Gwynn and Roux were R. Champion in the Adult Equitation.  Margaurite and Lorenda had super rounds in the Long Stirrup. Joseph was Champion in the .95 Jumpers (his first show on Sebastian) and Kathryn and Tarina were R. Champ in the Low AA's in their 'Comeback Show'. 

Congratualtions to all

Stephanie Putnam

This beautiful young woman is an insiration for all of us.

Shephanie rode with us as a junior at Windfall Farm and has overcome a terrible accident that left her wheelchair bound. She is paralized from the chest down with no feeling. What did Steph do with this tradgedy? She has become a top competitor in Combined Driving. She was recently featured in the US Combined Driving magazine called Whip amd will soon be competing in the US Driving for the Disabled "Team Selection" Clinic this month.  Stephanie has her eye set on the Paralympics in England in 2014.


Taylor Weeks and Dublin!

Big Congratulations go out to Taylor Weeks and her new horse Dublin.

Look for these two at the shows and Look Out Alaska!

Northern Winter Classic

Roux takes in the beautiful cross country course on an outing with his mom Gwynn.

The week at MEC was beautiful and our Windfall horses and riders enjoyed not only the fine weather but also the company of Melodic Farm clients and horses. Our own Spyder and Ian were the winners of the 1st 1.20m Spruce Qualifier. Gwynn and her nice horse Roux debuted in California as did Brian's lovely import Zaretina. 

Gry helped on the ground for the $7500 NWC Mini Prix getting Carol, Lesley and Matt to the ring.  Matt won the class with a blistering jumpoff round and Carol was 4th in a 9 horse jump-off.

Great way to start the year!


Annual Windfall Welcome in the New Year Party!

Well we had a rockin' party this year with a huge crowd.  Major fun was had by all.

Brian treated us to a great video that wrapped up 2012 nicely and offered great laughs and memories.

The annual gift exchange was a wild time of gift giving and stealing.

And as usual the food was fantastic!

Welcome 2013!
