Riders at Hunter Holloway Stables Take Working Out Seriously

We hopped right in on a workout session at Hunter Holloway Stables in Wellington, where trainer Petr Julianov works with the riders. For the eight weeks that junior riders Britta Belline and Hannah Loeffelbein have been showing at the Winter Equestrian Festival, they have added a weekly workout session with Julianov in addition to their riding duties scheduled by Holloway. The two girls say they have learned a lot about fitness and will be continuing a workout program at home.

Pick of the Month:           
Caelinn Leahy - Bellis Show Jumping 


Caelinn Leahy, just 16 years old, gave an amazing performance on the grass derby field this month at WEF aboard Dymendy in the $25,000 CP National Grand Prix. Leahy finished in second place behind Swiss Olympic rider, Martin Fuchs, who took the individual silver medal in the 2018 World Equestrian Games. Leahy's ability to maneuver in the field comes from her background of fox hunting, as her father, Tony Leahy, is MFH of the Fox River Valley Hunt (IL) and  President of the Masters of Foxhounds Association. She also rides in the field more than in the ring with trainer Steve Schaefer at their Bellis Show Jumping Stables in Maple Park, Illinois. Leahy and Dymendy, an 11-year-old Dutch Warmblood, have also been earning top ribbons in the High Junior Jumpers this winter. Congratulations Caelinn Leahy!    www.bellisshowjumping.com
 

In the Know - Equine Marketing 101

How to get the most from your marketing - SCHEDULE!

Making time for marketing is usually at the bottom of the list along with cleaning out the feed room or the jump shed! Clients often say, "I tried marketing but I didn't get any response."  

Studies show an average person must see an ad  seven times to remember the ad and the product. So if you put yours out once or twice, you aren't helping yourself. Today's products are getting more sophisticated, enabling you to schedule posts ahead of time or when you know you won't have time to work on it. The more your name is out there, the more often a new client will think of you when they want to do business. 

If you aren't good at it and can't make time, hire someone who can, just as you hire a farrier or an accountant and stick with what you're good at. Need more tips? Give us a call!   262-391-6630
