May 2017 - Affirmed Silence (Alvi), our 2011 Thoroughbred gelding, had a great clinic with Beth Baumert at Hipico. Beth is an outstanding clinician, author and respected expert in correct foundations in dressage. It was a blast, Beth! Thank you SFDA, NMDA, TDF, Hipico Santa Fe, everyone who made this clinic possible!
February 2015 - A belated HAPPY NEW YEAR to all! Hard to believe that March is almost upon us. Everyone at HCF is getting ready for the upcoming show season starting with schooling shows next month. We are pleased to welcome Orbach (now named Orion) a wonderful 6 year old, 17h TB from the Santa Fe Horse Shelter to his new forever home at HCF. He will be Maureen's schooling and trail companion. He is a gentle giant who settled in immediately to the bustle of the barn. He is working in dressage exercises and some in-hand work. The Santa Fe Horse Shelter is a wonderful non-profit organization that provides shelter and care for adoptable horses. Mike and Michele and their amazing staff and volunteers give surrendered, abandoned and at-risk equines an exceptional home to recover, heal and eventually be adopted. Check out their website at http://www.thehorseshelter.org/
December 2014 - We wish everyone a peaceful and safe HOLIDAY SEASON. Best wishes to all for 2015!!
