We have horses for sale right now, clients’ horses, and more Ricardo horses plus Rox’s firstborn, “Liam”, coming over from Ireland in August. Liam just turned 3 in June, along with a couple other sales horses. We also have five here at the farm that we’re promoting, so be sure to check them out! We have quite a few horses in all price ranges, from a Dales pony to OTTB’s to Irish horses, including Ricardo’s Whistle and Pop. Check the Sales page!
Readers are invited to check out Kristin’s blog for updates. Most recently, Kristin reflects on the ups and downs of 2011, with all of the “firsts” that made it such a memorable year as well as all of the things that she has to look forward to in 2012.
“Over the last few months I have had a bit of time to reflect on the past year for KSE. While we had a slow start to the year, we ended up having a whirlwind of a finish!
Having both Joey and Rox sidelined early on in the spring season left me feeling a bit defeated because we had some really fun goals we were working hard for. Rox was going to move up to advanced and I hoped to qualify for a 3-star; Joey was aimed at Badminton, a lifelong dream. Well, that didn’t happen! But (here comes the first of my ‘firsts’). it was the first time that I entered and was ACCEPTED at Badminton! I think that’s pretty special chapter in my book!
Well, those boys came back with a vengeance and I gained some perspective on my career. I had felt, for lack of a better word, down about not getting to Badminton, so I needed to snap out of that funk and get going on some new plans! I thought, well hey, let’s aim Rox at the Pan American Games! So off to Rebecca Farm on a plane to do another 2-star we went!” Read more on Kristin’s blog.
Kristin and Ballylaffin Bracken “Rox” named alternates to TEAM USA for the Pan Am Games this October 2011.

We started using the Haygain Hay Steamer for all of my competition horses at the beginning of this year and I couldn’t be happier with the results. This is the truly the healthiest way to feed hay, which is the most important part of a horse’s diet. Not only does the Haygain Hay Steamer rid our hay of potential mold or fungus, it converts it into a wholesome forage that my horses really enjoy! Even my picky eaters (the ones that never used to finish their hay) are now finishing every last scrap!
After adding Mushroom Matrix to the daily regimen of my top event horses, I noticed a significant improvement in their physical and mental well-being. From a competition standpoint, my three upper-lever eventers have a greater focus and a calmer disposition after starting on the ECP Matrix. This has translated into a greater willingness to perform to the level they are being asked.Continue reading
