Celebrating the MFTHBA Celebration

We are a lucky group to have an association that puts on The Celebration. I love the spirit behind it. We celebrate our amazing breed of horse, the hard work and dedication that has made the breed so versatile and beautiful, we celebrate our friendships, our personal horses – the list goes on and on. A big thank you to everyone who makes it possible.

If you’ve never been before, it can be a little daunting.

Here are some tips to ensure you have a super time.

  1. Look at the schedule of events and plan ahead for what you want to attend. The MFTHBA Celebration is the best opportunity to look at hundreds of horses  — weanlings to seniors — performing in a variety of disciplines. You can learn so much by watching how the horses are performing, what classes they’re in, studying the bloodlines, the breeders, etc.
  2. Connect in person with people you’ve met through Facebook groups. Let them know you’re coming and would like to meet up. Just remember to be sensitive to people’s schedules. This is a busy time, so try to be flexible. Not everyone will be able to stop and socialize. Lots of meet ups happen spontaneously so be ready to roll with it.
  3. See if anyone is planning a trail ride – or attend some of the scheduled MFTHBA rides during the week. The country is beautiful and it’s a fantastic way to make new friends while enjoying your horses.

Don’t forget to check the weather.  My husband James and I will see you there! Drop by Barn 15!

About the Author:

I'm Katherine Kirkpatrick Stone. My husband James and I began raising Fox Trotters in 2007 and have loved every minute. Together we launched Twin Star Farms, now located in Whitney, Texas, and this gaited horse breed has been a big part of our lives ever since. We like different styles of horse. James is 6'4 and is all about competition - style, animation, reach, rhythm and head shake. He has his judge's card and is working toward the perfect performance ride. I'm 5'4" and like to pleasure ride on a pretty, solidly conformed, and safe horse that I can emotionally connect with. We both like our horses to have “horse sense” and an easy-going, natural smooth way of traveling. You can imagine the discussions at our farm! But our different perspectives help us ultimately improve the quality of the Fox Trotters we raise. We hope you'll benefit from our Fox Trotter experience, and even join us on the journey.
