Nikki Harrison to Join High Spirits Farm

Nicole (Nikki) Harrison announces that April 1, 2009 she will be joining the team at High Spirits Farm, Ashland, Missouri, and opening her own training services to accept outside horses for all divisions and the start of a lesson program.

Nikki is well known through her association for the past 11 years with Virgil Helm, New Bloomfield, Missouri where she has been active with open, amateur, juvenile, and young horses such as Sunshine Way, Scarlet Evening, Take Me Away, Take A Guess, She’s Gone Blonde, Enchanting Memories and Marie Claire to name a few. She rode the Helm-owned gaited mare, Lady Bella, to the title of World Champion Ladies Five Gaited Mare as well as the title of the American Royal Tom Bass Five Gaited Stake in 2008.

High Spirits Farm, owned by Anna Marie Knipp, is a state-of-the art facility located outside Columbia, Missouri and is home to many well known champion American Saddlebred horses and Hackney ponies. As the current chairman of UPHA Chapter 5, Nikki looks forward to this new enterprise and welcomes visitors. Please contact her at 573/808-2643 or the farm at 573/657-4622 for further information.
