Partners In Equitation Program Off To Great Start



The Partners in Equitation Program, which was begun in the fall of 2010, is off to a great start. Thus far, partnerships have been established between Abby Mutrux (Missouri) and Nick Sunder (Illinois); Morgan King (Florida) and Kathy Gray (Florida); Kate Melican (Kentucky) and William Nieves (Kentucky); Kelsey Robinson (Missouri) and Eli Miller (Missouri), and Samantha Potter (Missouri) and Morgan Brison (Missouri). These riders represent the teaching of DeLovely Farm, Pratense Farm, Judd Stables, Stirrups 'n Strides, The Luci Center, Brenda Benner Stables, Cedar Creek Therapeutic Riding Center, Stephens College and Fairview Farm.

Many of these riders have been Top Ten winners in the UPHA Challenge Cup Finals, and several are former Challenge Cup Champions. All of these riders acknowledge how much they have benefited from their association with horses and how much they enjoy simply being at the barn!

We are working diligently to establish partnerships for other riders, representing the instruction of The Luci Center, in Shelbyville, Kentucky, Country Meadow Farm, Mokena, Illinois, and Forever Farm, Raeford, North Carolina, and hope to report those partnerships in the near future.
