Newsletter 2017 was a great year with great new experiences. It was the year that both ladies of 3K took a leap of faith and decided to train full time. First and foremost we would like to welcome Zara Wright to the 3K Team. Zara has had a lifetime experience with horses and will be giving us a hand wherever it is needed in the future. We have many congratulations to give, with much exciting information, purchases, and rewards for the 2017 season. Lets start by congratulating all of our buyers... Kostrzewa family on their purchase of 2017 PB Arabian colt, "Bijoux Ambassador". We hope your daughter learns a lot from this experience. Kelly Hare and Alex Procter on their purchase of "Action Max". We cannot wait to see you two in the show ring this upcoming show season! Ashlynne Lobdell on her purchase of "Sunni". We are very pleased this young filly went to such a loving home that is willing and able to put the time into her she deserves. Kara Dykstra on her purchase of "Grand Jubilee". We hope you two can learn together and become a great team. Sierra Rose Farm on their purchase of "Zips Bonanza Miss" in foal to Another Blue Cookie for 2018. We look forward to seeing the foal this spring! Josie Shelton on her purchase of "SHS Mora Norusa". These two ended the 2017 show season with a bang, and 2018 will be even better! Josie will be stalled with us at most of the dressage shows this season. To move on to the many terrific horses from 2017... Thank you to Mike Ackerman for allowing us to work with "Foxy" this year. We enjoyed her company and we hope to see you two in the show ring in 2018! Jeanine Ralph and Star were an absolute joy to have around this summer! We enjoyed watching Star at fair under saddle and hope that they stick with it and we see them back in 2018! We welcomed back "Avion of Genesis" to the training team and show string for 2018. Avion will join us on our Kentucky trip, and will be showing at the National Pony Cup as well as Haflinger Nationals. We are thrilled to get the LaRoe family showing their boy! We enjoyed "Limited Edition Hotrod" owned by Cheryl and Bill Turner. "Lincoln" ended up showing western dressage at the end of 2017 and placed in all three of his classes. We cannot wait to see Cheryl in the show ring with this fancy gelding in 2018. Special thanks to Karen Patterson for allowing us to come help with "Sparrow". He has been a joy to work with and we hope to continue working with him into the 2018 show season. Congrats to Kathryn Michon and "TLA Sagacious" on a successful show year. It has truly been an honor watching you two learn with each other. Congratulations to Link to Pearfection Farm on a very successful first year out with "Golden Unique Link"!

We are very proud of this boy and wish for him to have a bright future ahead. Due North Haflingers had a succesful year as well with their stallion "Niagara YES" placing overall Grand Champion in Training Level Novice Horse. This was Niagara's second year out and we finished the season showing first level and schooling second at home.
