ABRT took the tack trailer to the AHJA kick off show March 4th and what fun it is to be back showing again. The weather was awesome, you could not have had a better weather weekend!! Kimberly and I stayed busy all weekend and enjoyed seeing all of our friends and happy horses. We were fitting coats and shirts for children that had grown over the winter months and getting fresh breeches for the 2016 show season. Our biggest sellers were Samsheild and Parlanti boots. We also sell lots of lost gloves, garters, and crops, we can never have enough of those items. It was a great weekend and a good “jump” start to the 2016 show season. Thank you for your support, we love our customers and spending time with you at the shows!!!!!
ABRT is experiencing some changes for 2016. Kimberly Morgan has been with ABRT for several years now and has been promoted to the manager of the store!! Kimberly started out part time on the trailer traveling to different shows and slowly began inside retail sales. She is still performing all of those duties plus taking over other roles. I am so excited to have her on in this capacity, she is a great asset to ABRT and customers love her. Emma Brothers will be leaving ABRT to pursue her asperation of becoming a great rider and worthy trainer for horses in the H/J world. She will be moving to Ocala to work with Alejo Maddelena. We will miss Emma as she was so great to work with and brought a creative flair to the store. Good luck Emma and don’t forget your sunscreen!!! We have also hired a new employee, Haleigh Moman. Haleigh is a fine equestrian with a broad knowledge of disciplines. Haleigh, although young, has already begun starting horses and training horse with difficult personalities, she herself owns horses and has won time and time again in different venues. If Haleighs name sounds familiar its because she was also the scholarship winner at ABRT for 2015. We are glad to have her on the team. As you can see I work hard to find fine equestrians in the area to help you get the best service and knowledgeable of products on the market. Come see us!!!
Haleigh Moman is your typical horse crazy girl. Haleigh has been riding since she was very young. She is now quite accomplished and knowledgeable as she has been training with Donna West learning natural horsemanship, and is self taught on barrels, jumping and just good general horsemanship. Haleigh shows her own horses at local barrel races, obstacle challenges, 4H and the state show every year. She is a well rounded equestrian with versatile horses she has trained herself. Haleigh is good at starting young horses and working with horses that have behavior problems. Haleigh will always continue to train horses, but she will be attending college when she graduates from HS. We are excited to have this talented young woman at ABRT she is truly an asset to the team!!
