Fiesta Farm recently competed in the RMI Horse Show in Alpharetta, GA. at the Will’s Park Horse facility on December 8-11. Several of the riders and horses/ponies were champions in their respective divisions.
- Josie Nadaud on Alexander were champion in the 3’3″ Children’s Hunter division, in which they were competing for the first time.
- Cassie Donnell on her pony Stonewall Stratus were competing for the first time in the Large Green Pony division. He was champion, making him qualified for the USEF Pony Finals in August of 2012. It was a proud moment as Cassie purchased the pony almost two years ago as a green broken prospect.
- Grace Roberts competed perhaps for the last time on her leased pony Sterling Silver in the short stirrup divisions, winning all four of the hunter and equitation over fences classes. She was champion in both the equitation and hunter divisions.
- Carter Anderson on her medium pony King Me won the USEF pony equitation class making her eligible to compete in the USEF August finals.

Joe Cool is a school master Small Pony and my favorite pony in the whole world. He is perfect for short stirrup, children’s pony or as a first small pony for novice riders. He stays underneath his children and develops a great ‘eye’ for his rider. He has a great jump and good lead changes. He has won many classes with several small pony riders doing the “smalls” for the first time. He is available for lease only to an approved rider/trainer who will love him as much as I do. He is currently leased to a young rider in Virginia but will be available April 1, 2014.
